Changes to student login

Teams – Outlook – College pc’s – Moodle

From Monday 2nd November you will be able to login to your brand new student accounts and here’s how….

Your new student login

Your new student login will now begin with an s followed by the person code on your college card.

Your new password is your date of birth i.e. 13Aug1988

You can change your password via Office.com and also set up the ability to use the Self-Service Password Reset.

Logging into Office 365

Your student email will change to @students.carlisle.ac.uk

example

You will then be asked to give more details select Next

You will be asked to enter your phone number (the first link you see)

Add the UK as your region

Add your phone number – select text me

You will be sent a verification code. Enter the verification code and select Next

Select Finish

You should now be logged into your new student account.

Logging into eTrackr

Logging into eTrackr will be exactly the same as logging into the computers when you are in college. etrackr.carlisle.ac.uk

*Please note if you change your password through Office 365 your eTrackr password will change to the new password you have created.

Logging into Moodle

Moodle – my.carlisle.ac.uk

Login with s and person code for username and password – you will then be asked to change your password.

One Drive

We do hope to restore all files from your old One Drive account, however due to the large quantity of data, this may take a while. If you need access to your files as a matter of urgency please contact us and let us know.

Why are our accounts changing?

We are switching your account to provide you with a better IT user experience.

One of the biggest benefits is that you will no longer be a ‘Guest’ in your Class Team on Teams, so when you log back in after this move things might look a little different as you won’t need to switch views and the teaching staff will be busy ensuring the new Teams Class sites are set up for you. You will also benefit from being able to reset your own password within office.com should you forget it.

Have you downloaded the eNotify app?

Download the eNotify app from your app store and you can let College know if you are going to be absent, running late, leaving early or off for any COVID 19 related reasons. The app notifies your tutors right away.

eNotify – Apps on Google Play

Set the app up by using your college email account.

Get in touch with us here at the Student Zone should you have any difficulties

Black History Month

October is a month in which we celebrate inspirational individuals, events and history of people within the black and ethnic community.

The UK has celebrated Black History Month every October since 1987

It is an annual event that also celebrates the contribution made by the generations of those of African and Caribbean descent living in the UK who have shaped Britain’s national and cultural life.

By celebrating Black History Month, here at Carlisle College, we can celebrate the achievements of Black people and challenge continued racism and negative stereotypes.

Learning Disability Week 2020

Learning Disability Week 2020

The following information is provided by Mencap, visit the mencap website for more details https://www.mencap.org.uk/get-involved/learning-disability-week-2020#involved

Learning Disability Week 2020 will take place online from 15 to 21 June.

The theme of the week is the importance of friendships during lockdown

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have all been living in lockdown. This means that many people with a learning disability are feeling isolated, as they have been unable to see their friends and families.

We know that people with a learning disability already experience high levels of loneliness and social isolation and that this will only have been made worse by the lockdown.

We want to show the importance of friendships to help with tackling isolation, as well as exploring the different ways of maintaining friendships during this unusual time.

Ways to get involved with #LDWeek2020

Create a friendship flag

We know many people with a learning disability will be unable to see their friends in person at the moment.

So we’ve created a pack to help you have a fun video call with your friends!

The pack includes how to make a friendship flag which you could make before your video call that shows all the things you like or miss about your friend.

You can then show your friends on your video call, hang it up at home or share it on social media using the hashtag #LDWeek2020.

Download your friendship flag here….
