  • Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 You can quickly go through the myRutgers slides. The info is easy to go through independently by the students. More time should be reserved for the SFTP section since it includes the hands-on demo. Mention the search options, at the top right of the page. The “Shortcuts” section contains useful links. myRutgers “help” section is directly below “Shortcuts” but not pictured.
  • Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 The following myRutgers slides need to be updated to reflect the new interface. You can quickly go through them and then show students the updated interface by logging in via a web browser.

  • This is the Rutgers Google Apps for Education suite. Called ScarletApps, it includes the most popular Google Apps - Gmail, Docs, Calendar, etc. as well as the recent addition of many of the applications formerly available only with personal Google accounts. New students should register for this service. It should make sharing for presentations and other group projects a bit easier. There may be lots of confusion regarding which email account to use: ScarletApps, personal Google, Eden. This website answers the general question: http://rucs-nbp.rutgers.edu/services/communicating/email-overview.php. Rutgers is recommended, but if you use personal, update the directory so that professors and University staff can find you. Computing @ SCILS

It looks like scanning is avail for free for Rutgers students at scanning stations in the libraries: http://www.libraries.rutgers.edu/rul/lib_servs/imaging_services.shtml#self_serv_scanning
  • Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Regarding printing - $30 allocated per student each semester. You don’t typically come close to exhausting this limit. Also, top secret intel: the printer on the 3 rd floor grad student lab, mentioned on previous slide, does not currently subtract from your print allocation.
  • Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 This screenshot is a few years old. Although there are some changes, all of the above links are still active and in the same positions, therefore I’ve opted not to switch out the screenshot just yet. You may want to click on the picture and navigate to the current webpage in your browser.

  • Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Students can use RADS or other antivirus software, but some protection is highly recommendeed. Examples: Norton, McAfee or AVG Free.
  • Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Dropbox.com is a service for storing documents online and syncing across multiple devices. Works even when you’re not connected to the internet Around 2GB is offered for free. Create an account and access via the Dropbox website. Download the app onto desktops or mobile devices.
  • Computing @ SCILS
  • Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Show students how to "be wired" by cable to their router or broadband modem, in case they want a web service where it is better to be connected by wire than by using the wireless signal transmitted by their router or modem. This can be accomplished by asking them to look at the PCs in front of them, and to trace the blue ethernet cord from the computer to the networking hub. In their homes, the networking hub would be replaced by their wireless router or cable modem. A simplified diagram can be found here: http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/a-typical-computer-networking-setup0.html
  • Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Both WinSCP and Filezilla should be installed on the SC&I lab workstations in room 119. Filezilla is NOT installed on the computers in the grad lab on the 3 rd floor of SC&I. Not sure about the grad lab on the 3 rd floor of Alex. You’ll want to mention the importance of this concept for the 550 class. The Eden server is where each student’s website will be hosted. So they will need to learn how to transfer files from a local machine to the Eden server. To illustrate the concept, show them http://eden.rutgers.edu/~davisd or your own Eden website.

  • Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Mention that there are other tools out there for Mac users. But we will demo Filezilla concurrent with WinSCP. Only need to go into detail on Filezilla if there are Mac users present (and only if they brought their machines). Otherwise, mention that they can refer back to the slide and contact RU ASIS&T if there are questions: http://ruasist.rutgers.edu/contactus/
  • Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Once again, this slide can be quickly touched upon if there are no Mac users in attendance. You’ll want to point out the “Local site” side on the left vs. the “Remote site” side on the right.

  • The file structure is the layout of folders in a particular directory. Keep these in sync when copying files from one machine to the other. When saving your work, use a flash drive to copy the higher-level directory. In the example above, it would be C:\\Users\\davisd\\Documents\\ex1. Doublecheck that each sub-directory is copied (“css” and “images”). Computing @ SCILS
  • For that last bullet point, you can go through the steps to show them how to do this. Also, please mention the following coding tips. Computing @ SCILS
  • Prof Spoerri was instrumental in the redesign of the 550 course. Computing @ SCILS

  • Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Bookmarking: Delicious bookmarks are searchable, so they are a great “getting started” resource. You’ll get results that other people have decided were relevant to your search terms! You can add notes to your bookmarks to help you remember why you liked them (e.g., good bio; good quote on p. 23). You can make your bookmarks private or share them with others. Calls and IM: For Skype: in terms of hardware, encourage students to get a headset with mic since this will be very useful in online classes and/or if they want to interact with instructor or other students using audio / video conferencing. Meebo is used by RUL for chat reference. The Libraries presenter will go into more detail. Screencasting and Presentations: Students interested in screencasting can get set up with a Panapto account by emailing sgarwood@rutgers.edu. Resource center for management of images, text, video, music, etc. online: http://cogdogroo.wikispaces.com
  • Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 Computing @ SCILS 08/11/08 stj 2004 When in doubt - Rich Text Format (.rtf) files can be read in just about every program - SO...unsure of what your Prof uses and you need to hand in an electronic file... .rtf is the way to go.

  • Computer Labs
    • You’re sitting in the main one for SC&I (119A&B)! Check the schedules at the door for operating hours.
    • You need your ID to get your print jobs!!
    • SC&I Helpdesk is right next door and they are very helpful.
    • There is a small grad student lab on the 3 rd floor of SC&I with a 3 PCs, 2 Macs and a good quality printer.
    • There is a larger grad lab on the 3 rd floor of Alexander Library.

  • Hardware & File Storage Need computer repairs? Connect your laptop with… Get a flash drive! Inexpensive, easy, portable way to save files. And do not be afraid to GO BIG with 16 or 32 GB!
  • Take Five!
  • Basic Computer Network Principles In a networked computing environment, a main computer system, called a SERVER, serves software and files to workstations that are connected to it. These workstations can be your home PC or the PC’s in our labs here on campus and throughout Rutgers.
  • Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP)
    • SFTP -> “Secure File Transfer Protocol”.
    • Securely transfer files over the Internet from one computer to another. For most users, this means transferring files from a local computer to a remote server (e.g., Eden) and back again.
    • Every student is given space on the EDEN Server for file storage.
    • File transfer software is installed on the SC&I lab workstations
  • Macs and PCs: Filezilla
    • Filezilla is a free FTP utility that works on both Mac and PC.
    • The Information Technology course (550) will transition to usage of this tool for remote file transfers.
  • Macs: Practice using Filezilla
    • Other FTP management tools for Mac: Cyberduck and Fugu .
  • Macs: Practice using Filezilla (PCs, next slide)
  • PCs: Practice using WinSCP
    • Run WinSCP
    • Start a New Session
      • Host Name: eden.rutgers.edu
      • User Name and Password: your EDEN net id and pwd
      • Port number: 22
      • Ignore the Private key file field
      • Select “SFTP (allow SCP fallback)” Protocol
      • Login
    • If this box appears, hit “Yes”:
    • To Disconnect: Click icon.
    • Note: Do NOT remove the Maildir folder! (it holds your EDEN email)
  • Folders in WinSCP
    • You can use SFTP to back up your school work. Your EDEN usage will include data stored here.
    • To set up your personal website, create a folder in your WinSCP called [exactly] public_html
    • Create a subfolder for 550 (Info Tech)
    • In WinSCP, right click on subfolder name, and click on Properties
    • Permissions: 777 (full) or 644 (read only) ‏ Note: You must set the permissions to one of the above for others to see the website.
    • Test it: http://eden.rutgers.edu/~your netID/
  • File Management Tips MATCH the file structure from your local machine to the remote one, when using WinSCP or Filezilla.
  • File Management Tips, cont.
    • Do NOT use spaces and special characters in filenames.
    • Use lowercase letters in your filenames. Good practice for multi-word filenames is to start with a lowercase letter and capitalize the first letter of each subsequent word, e.g., firstWebpage
    • Windows users: configure Explorer to show file extensions for all files. This will eliminate filenaming errors such as “index.html.html”.
      • Vista and higher: in Explorer top menu bar, click “Organize” and then “Folder and search options”. Click “View”. Uncheck the box next to “Hide extensions for known file types”.
  • Coding Tips
    • When coding HTML, CSS or any other language, SPELL things in a CONSISTENT fashion.
    • Check for typos if hyperlinks or pages do not work.
    • Pearls of wisdom from Anselm Spoerri, LIS Assistant Professor:
      • “ In 550, students will be provided with code examples and their job is, to use an analogy, to "extend a two-way highway into a 10-way highway“. Since they will be provided the code for creating one highway, they can use copy, paste & modify to create the other highways. It is paramount that variables are named and used in a CONSISTENT fashion. So if they have defined a variable " highway5 ", then spelling in different ways later in the code will mean that the code will not work. Students may then draw the wrong conclusion that programming is hard, when it fact the code is not working because of a simple spelling inconsistency ... if this penny drops, then they are a long way toward having fun with programming :)”
  • WinSCP Download (PC only) How to Download WinSCP : Click the pic to get to the University Software Portal; or go to software.rutgers.edu. Login using your EDEN netID and password. Type “scp” (no quotes) into the search box and click on link for WinSCP. Follow download instructions.
  • More New Technology! This may seem overwhelming, but you can do it!! We are going to introduce you to some useful tools for the future. When you need to use them, go to our wiki for detailed instructions and how-to videos. For now, just sit back, relax, and enjoy the show…
  • Social & Presentation Software
    • With social bookmarking, collect online resources in one spot for yourself or for group projects.
    • Skype is a great option for conference calls. For IM, try Google Talk , Skype or Meebo Messenger .
    • Use Panapto , Jing , Screencast-O-Matic or Prezi to create screencasts or other advanced online presentations.
    • See the Tech Help section of our website for more links. Contact Us if you encounter another cool tool!
  • Collaborative Docs
    • You can create and share your work online; you can also upload to and from your desktop.
    • You control who has access to your document and whether they can edit or just view.
    • More than one person can edit the document at one time and changes are tracked so you know who does what.
    • Files are stored securely online, and the service is free.
    • You’ll have to register for your free Google account to use; or simply use ScarletApps .
  • Where do I park ? Where are the RU bookstores ? Where do I get my student ID ? How do I find out what books I need ? Where can I eat ? Anything else ? Click on the question marks to get some answers! Our website also has helpful info.
  • You’ve got what it takes!
          • You’re ready for library school and its information adventures!
          • Don’t get overwhelmed…you can always ask your fellow students for help.
          • Relax. You can do it!!!
  • Break Time! http://mac.softpedia.com/progScreenshots/Fugu-Screenshot-3303.html http://mac.softpedia.com/progScreenshots/Fugu-Screenshot-3303.html Please return in 15 minutes for the library presentation. Thank you!
