You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know – Episode 6

As I travel around the academic technology landscape at Williston I come across lots of interesting tidbits of information. I am going to take the best of what I discover and press it into a regular video cast that I call “You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know”. My hope is that you find these tech tips useful and that they make your life easier!

In this episode I talk about short links, a Veracross drobox tip, how to improve audio recording on your Surface, changing the color of a OneNote notebook, a small and stable PDF viewer, and how to bring back an old-style Windows start menu.

Printing and a short link


A permanent and stable printing method will be in place soon. In the meantime, here is the current status of printing on campus: Instructions (PDF)Copier Addresses (PDF)

Please note that all students should only print to the library and department offices unless given explicit permission by a teacher to use one of the other printers.

Short link:

Yup, you do have the Veracross portal link all over the place, but you may need to type it in manually every now and then. This short link goes to the Veracross portal and may be easier to remember: bit.ly/veracross
