In addition to the remote work options for using Microsoft 365 applications, the university's virtual private network (VPN) or a remote desktop and applications, there are many collaborative productivity tools to allow you to work with colleagues, teachers and fellow students when you are away from campus.
These tools allow you to have virtual meetings, online chats, soft phones, and connect remotely to your files and CU Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus resources. Take a look at some of these options and please contact the OIT Service Desk if you need additional assistance getting started:
Meet and collaborate virtually using Zoom by logging in with your university credentials. All faculty, staff and students are licensed for meetings up to 500 participants.
Get started with Zoom instructional videos.
You can even use Zoom on the go with the Zoom app for mobile devices! Please know that the university's Zoom encryption is configured for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) compliance; however, be sure to use caution with sensitive information.
Uninvited participants harassing students, faculty and staff during classes and meetings has been on the rise recently. It is very important to follow Zoom’s security best practices. One of the most basic rules is to never share Zoom meeting links on social media, the internet, or any public place. More information about Zoombombing is available from the School of Education and Human Development's Learning Design and Technology webpage.
Duo is a multi-factor authentication (MFA) tool required when connecting to campus resources from remote locations. Using Duo means that an identity thief cannot use a stolen password to access our systems or your personal information without a second proof of your identity. MFA has become one of the best ways to ensure the only person logging into your account is YOU!
Registration and installation of Duo will need to be completed prior to accessing the university network from off-campus. The Duo app will turn your mobile phone, iPad, tablet or landline into a multi-factor authenticator. OIT highly recommends that you install Duo on your mobile phone for the most complete options to authenticate.
Step #1: Install the Duo app on your preferred device.
