CUNY Graduate Center
IT Announcement for Fall 2017
Please take note of these important announcements from Information Technology (IT).
We are pleased to announce that starting Thursday, August 24, 2017, all GC students will have access to web printing. Students can send from any device and location a document to be printed, and can then retrieve and print the document on-site from any of our print release stations located in the GC Library.
In order to use web printing, students will need to execute a one-time registration using their Office 365 email accounts (i.e. email@example.com) at the following web link https://siteup.ocsinc.ca/site/register.
Web printing is available only for students and is supported by GC Student Technology Fee funds. For more details, please be sure to read carefully our posted Student Web Printing FAQs
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please email us at ITServices@gc.cuny.edu.
Attention GC Community,
We are proud to announce that we have changed the name of our Audiovisual unit to IT Media Services.
Please review the following announcement from the CUNY Central Office Blackboard administrator:
We wrote to you at the beginning of the summer semester regarding the transitioning of Blackboard login credentials to the new CUNY Login credentials. You will access Blackboard from the same login points you currently use.
If you have an Employee ID (EMPL ID) in CUNYfirst, the new credentials will be your CUNYfirst username followed by @login.cuny.edu and your CUNYfirst password. For example, if you log into CUNYfirst as george.washington76, you will log into Blackboard as firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are not sure if you have an EMPL ID click here
to register as a New User then log into Blackboard.
If you do not have an EMPL ID, continue using your CUNY Portal credentials followed by @login.cuny.edu and your CUNY Portal password. Avoid changing your password if necessary. The new password will not be affiliated with the account when trying to access Blackboard. If you are unable to access Blackboard, send an email to email@example.com and provide your CUNY Portal username, Banner ID and a screen shot of the error message. A ticket will be open for a team member to assist you.
Video Streaming will no longer function as an “archive” for videos, but rather as originally created – for live streaming. Read more
