5 Steps to Getting Started for New Faculty

Author: Chelsea Noble

Are you a new faculty member at Notre Dame? Welcome! The OIT is here to help you with your technology needs throughout your career at Notre Dame. Here are five steps we recommend for getting started:

  1. Set Up Your NetID and Password

    Your University NetID is the key to most technology resources on campus, including email, campus networks, shared file systems, Sakai, and our campus portal, insideND. To set up your NetID and password, visit the NetID activation page.
  2. Access Your Email and Calendar

    Notre Dame provides all faculty and staff with email and calendaring services through Google. You can access Google Mail at gmail.nd.edu and find additional information on Gmail and Calendar here.
  3. Connect to the ND Network 

    You'll want to connect your computers, phones, and other devices to either the campus wired network or our eduroam wireless network
  4. Prepare to Teach in a Technology Classroom

    We equip most Registrar-scheduled classrooms with a suite of technology services. To get started, you can review our Classroom Technology page.
  5. Manage Your Classes Online

    The Sakai collaborative learning environment provides tools to structure and manage your classes and interact with your students online. You may also wish to use course mailing lists to communicate with students in your classes.
