In the event that work or academic functions are disrupted due to prolonged campus or building closures, it may be necessary to work, teach, or collaborate from off campus.
The Technology Division provides services to connect you with colleagues and students remotely so that you can continue your work and learning interactions with students.
Here's a quick checklist of things you may need:
It's best to check if you have these items available before you need them. Test access with your equipment and resources from home, and contact the Help Desk if you have questions.
VPN access gives you the ability to connect to Chattanooga State from home and works as if you were sitting at your work desk. VPN provides you with a secure connection to Chattanooga State network resources such as Banner. Once you've successfully connected via VPN, you can access these services just as you would at work.
Chattanooga State provides WebEx Meetings and Teams as a way to conduct online meetings and teaching via remote locations. This can be achieved through use of mobile devices as well as personal computers.
You can access your e-mail from anywhere with Office 365. Just visit https://outlook.office.com and log in with your e-mail address and campus password
Chattanooga State provides a cloud repository for files (accessibile anywhere with an Internet connection) through our Office 365 service. It is recommended that you move your critical work documents to OneDrive prior to working remotely so that you can access those files.
When working remotely, please remember to forward your office phone to either your home or mobile phone.
Procedures for keeping your keyboard/mouse clean: With your PC powered down (to avoid risk of electrocution), wipe down keyboards and mice regularly with a CDC-approved disinfectant wipe. To remove debris between keys, you can use a piece of tape or a specially made putty for keyboard cleaning. NEVER spray disinfectant directly on a keyboard, trackpad, or pointing device.
