IT Security Tip
Using commonly known information about you for a password is not only a bad practice, it's also not secure. Stay away from using your family or pet names, birth dates or any other information that someone could find on social networking sites or public places such as the campus directory.

IT Tip
Create a web shortcut: Right-click on a web page in your browser and select Create Shortcut to place a shortcut link on your desktop.

Accessibility Tip
When posting a video on your website, be sure to include a link to a closed-captioned version. Videos created by Web Strategy and Interactive Media always have a closed- captioned version. For videos you create, YouTube can help automate the process.
