To be successful at Akron, adult learners need certain basic technological skills.
Please visit Software Training and Technological Services and click on the "Students" tab. There is documentation for Microsoft applications, Springboard, ZipLine and much more.
This Springboard practice tutorial class allows you to practice all of the features in Springboard because it is not a "real" class but rather a practice class. Login to Springboard with uaafguest and use uaafguest for the password. Once in Springboard, select UA Adult Focus.
Using cloud technology, The University of Akron now offers selected computer applications via a virtual computer lab to all students and faculty. This "always on" environment means you can access these programs anytime from anywhere using almost any device. For access instructions, visit UA's virtual lab.
UA students can access five statistical and engineering programs. More are planned for the future.
Current offerings are:
SPSS Statistics 19
SAS 9.2 (64-bit)
There are 100 desktops available. If you cannot gain access to a virtual desktop, you will get a message saying there are "no desktops available." You will need to check back later.
The new virtual lab does not replace any current on-campus access. It only expands access.
More information is available at UA's virtual lab. If you have questions, contact the Support Desk at 330-972-6888.
