Change to Guest Wireless Access
Changes are coming to the AirPennNet-Guest wireless network on April 27. This Friday, the University will replace our current version of AirPennNet-Guest with a new system. Guests will need to register each day, but they won't need a PennKey. Here is a guide to the changes.
Some of our featured initiatives for the 2016–2017 academic year may be useful in your courses.
- Zoom for web conferencing;
- Respondus Lockdown Browser, a web browser for taking tests;
- Matlab and Mathematica;
- Office 365 for students;
- PollEverywhere for in-class polling with mobile devices;
- and other resources for teaching.
“Computer processing is involved in every aspect of knowledge-generating activity, including data access, data integration, data provenance, as well as visualization, modeling, and theorizing.”
-Prof. Junhyong Kim, Penn Program in Single Cell Biology
Computing plays a growing role in research across all the disciplines in the School of Arts and Sciences, from electronic text corpora, to genomic analysis, to economic modeling and beyond. Research computation can deal with vast amounts of data on a previously unimaginable scale and can quickly perform iterations or parallel operations that would previously have taken weeks. SAS Computing can help guide researchers to choose and use the research tools that are best suited to their particular needs.
Our new website, “Information Technology for Research,” provides an introduction to the research services and resources that are available from SAS Computing.
