Once again, ITS has received reports of a phishing scam that is being sent around campus. It is similar to a phishing email that had gone around earlier this year in that it provides a link for you to submit your username and password to “upgrade your email.” This is not a legitimate email, so please do not do this. If you have already given away your username and password, please change it immediately. Read more…
Once again, ITS has received reports of a phishing attempt that is going around campus. This attempt appears like a message with a link to a file in Google Drive:
- Misspellings and grammar errors (i.e. space before the question mark, misspelling of doc in “view dock here”, its when it should be it’s, etc). Especially when the sender usually pays attention to these details
- The email asks you to sign to Google Apps to view the document when you are already signed in to read your email.
- When you hover over the link, you can see that it is a shortened link and not a docs.google.com link.
At the end of May, ITS began our move from the F.W. Olin Center to Sorensen Hall. If you get a chance, please stop by to say hi or to get help with a technology-related problem. See some pictures of our new offices below! Read more…
We’ve been having some issues lately with emails accidentally going into the spam folder. One way to avoid this is to check your spam folder periodically and unmark them, however that can become frustrating when it happens repeatedly to routine emails.
We have two trainings scheduled for this week. Please RSVP to the ITS staff member that is listed as teaching the course. Both of this week’s courses are Blue and Gold Certification electives and both are especially important for professors who are setting up their courses for next term:
- Thursday, November 14th from 10-11AM in Olin 110
Moodle Drop-in Workshop
- Friday, November 15 from 9-10AM in Olin 110
Welcome to Augustana to our first year students and welcome back all those who are returning! ITS has been getting some questions about accessing our services (such as Moodle, Arches, and email). All of this information can be found on CampusNet, so we decided to create a series of TechTips explaining how to use CampusNet to find the information that you need.

To paraphrase the dictionary.com definition, phishing is when a person tries to obtain confidential information from Internet users, usually through an email that appears legitmate, but contains a link to a fake website that replicates the real one. From time to time, ITS receives reports about these sorts of scam emails. If you have received such an email, please mark it as spam and delete it. If you have given any personal information, such as your username and password, please take this opportunity to change your password immediately Read more…
