New OSU_Unsecured network in Housing for Consumer Devices

OSU is in the process of disabling the OSU_Access network. As of September 4, it has been disabled in all campus housing buildings. Customers should connect their computers to Eduroam or OSU_Secure instead.

However, students who live in OSU housing have reported that they are not able to connect some consumer products (such as Rokus, smart home assistants and some gaming consoles) to Eduroam or OSU_Secure because the devices do not support WPA2 Enterprise.

To allow students to connect consumer devices, the OSU_Unsecured network was implemented on 9/20/2018.

The OSU_Unsecured network is only available in student housing buildings. It does not allow access to any OSU resources (also cannot access VPN). Computers should be connected to Eduroam or OSU_Secure, and not OSU_Unsecured.


Ecampus Online Chemistry Lab

Beginning this fall term, the Service Desk will be the first point-of-contact for help with a new online virtual chemistry lab being used in some Ecampus Chemistry courses.

The online chemistry lab is completely html-based, does not require a plug-in, and is accessed through Canvas. Chrome is the recommended browser. We will assist students with basic browser troubleshooting and usage. Ecampus students will receive training in the use of the lab site as part of their course, and instructors will also be assisting them. Technical issues that we can’t resolve will be escalated to Ecampus. Ecampus also supports the instructors using the system.

The vendor provided a training video for us which I will be sharing with you all shortly.
