Help With ~ Remote Learning Resources for Students

Software and Apps

See the Virtual Course Environments page for information on Blackboard and Zoom.

Adobe Suite

Access to the Adobe suite is available for all students.

Those on campus may have noticed that many Macintosh computers have been removed and many Windows computers are missing keyboards and mice. In following social distancing guidelines, we have reduced the number of computers physically accessible in labs and public computing spaces to better protect the health and wellbeing of the Hamilton community. The resources on those inaccessible machines, however, are available through a remote connection to allow for continued use of the applications.

The Adobe suite (and other applications) can be found using the keyserver map of the Hamilton Campus. Once you have logged on (see below for access from off campus), you can search within the keyserver map for a free computer with the software you need. Then follow the instructions below that match the type of computers you are using:

If you are off campus, you will need to apply for an approved VPN connection using the VPN Request Form
