Google at IU

The Google at IU homepage.

Google at IU homepage.

IU students, faculty, and staff have access to yet another online collaboration tool. It’s Google at IU! You might wonder why you should use Google at IU instead of Box.iu for collaboration and storage. Frankly, it’s a matter of personal preference. You’ll find that both services have their pros and cons, so I suggest experimenting to see what works for you.

Understanding your Google at IU account

If you have a personal Google account things can get a little bit confusing once you set up your Google at IU account. First, make sure that your personal Google account and your Google at IU account are separate. Any institutional data you have should be stored in the IU account and not your personal account. Read about institutional data in this IU Knowledge Base (KB) document, and get tips on managing the separate accounts from this KB doc.

To access Google at IU, log in to google.iu.edu and authenticate with your IU username and passphrase. You can also log directly into Google from your browser or mobile app with your username@iu.edu email address. From there, you’ll be directed to the CAS login page. Note that this address is different from your @iub, @iupui, @iuk, etc. email.

Now that you’re logged in, let’s talk about the apps you can use. Read the rest of “Google at IU” »

Internet Explorer and YouTube problems?

The last week or so I’ve run into a problem with IE where when I try to view some YouTube videos I see a flash of the screen that should load and then I’m redirected to a page where I see this error:
This page can't be displayed

In looking for a solution, I found some comments from other people having the same problem. They had come up with two options to solve the issue, either:

  1. Use a different browser like Firefox or Chrome
  2. Log out of Google+

Not sure why logging out of Google+ fixes the issue but I found it worked for me.

Steve Jobs Passes Away

Steve Jobs passed away on October 5, 2011, after a six-year battle with cancer. Over the last few days there have been a multitude of online tributes to the brilliant visionary. I came across this YouTube video this morning, and I decided I had to post it on the IT Training blog. Jobs narrated this video clip as part of Apple’s Think Different campaign in the late 1990s. While I am not one of those individuals who always think outside of the box, I certainly know plenty of others who fall into this category. Therefore, I am posting this clip as a tribute to Steve and all others who find themselves “thinking differently.”
