How do I set up my account on a Kindle? (link)

1.    To begin using the Kindle, you will need to register it with your Amazon account. If you do not have an Amazon account, one can be easily created for free online. http://www.amazon.com/

2.     Use the 5-Way Control Knob to navigate the cursor to “Register” and click the control knob to select. Then type in your Amazon account email address and password to activate the device under your account and navigate down to “Select”. PLEASE BE SURE TO DEREGISTER THE DEVICE BEFORE RETURNING IT TO THE LIBRARY (see steps 6 and 7).

3.     In order to view items currently on the Kindle, hit the “Home” key and if the top of the screen does not say “Showing All ~ Items”, go to the top of the screen and navigate the cursor left to scroll between “Personal Documents” (PDFs, etc), “Subscriptions” (Newspapers, Magazines, and Blogs), “Books” (Amazon Kindle Books), and “All My Items” (All Items). Select the type of content you want, and browse.

4.     In order to put new content on the Kindle, you can either purchase and download content wirelessly from Amazon in the Kindle Store (accessed by hitting the “Menu” button and selecting “Shop in Kindle Store”), or you can add content directly by plugging it into your computer through the provided USB cable. Once you have plugged in the kindle to your computer, simply moved the desired files into the “Kindle” folder that will appear automatically under My Computer, and they will appear under “Personal Documents” on the Kindle.

5.     While viewing a document, flip between pages using the “Prev Page” and “Next Page” buttons. You can also using the “Aa” key on the keyboard to change the size of the font, screen rotation, and Text-to-Speech options.

6.     Before returning the Kindle, please check in “Personal Docs” (see step 2) to ensure that all of your documents have been deleted (navigate down to the document and press the directional knob to the left, then select delete, and confirm deletion) to ensure your items will not be left for future patrons.

7.     Before returning the Kindle, PLEASE BE SURE TO DEREGISTER THE DEVICE FROM YOUR AMAZON ACCOUNT. This is to ensure that no future patrons could accidentally access the Amazon Store through your account to purchase books or other content. Hit the “Menu” button, and scroll down to “Settings”. Once in the “Settings and Device Information” screen, navigate to and select “Deregister” and select “OK” in the following dialogue box.

Why do authenticated forms embedded in unauthenticated web pages display a 401 Access Denied error using Firefox 40? (link)

Version 40 of Firefox intentionally disables authenticated content embedded in unauthenticated web pages if the page and content are in different domains. 

This can be manually fixed by:

  • typing “about:config” in the address bar
  • clicking “I’ll be careful, I promise!”
  • searching for the Preference Name:  network.auth.allow-subresource-auth
  • Click the “1” next to that in the Value column and change to “2”
  • click OK. 

Once you refresh the page it will prompt for login.

How does an administrative assistant access and use Datatel to find course and student information in order to support their department and its faculty members? (link)

If you need access to Colleague, please go to https://managementtools.wlu.edu/AccessRequest/ and request an account. Once the proper approvals are granted, an account will be set up for you. Accounts are set up on an individual basis and they should not be shared with anyone. In most cases, when dealing with course and student information, the Registrar’s office will provide some level of training or guidance on how to access the data you require.

 

 

If you already have access to Colleague but cannot remember your login information or have issues accessing the system, go to http://webhelpdesk.wlu.edu and create a ticket under the category of Administrative Data – Colleague Issues/Requests. Once submitted, the ticket will be automatically routed to the appropriate person who can help you resolve problems.
