GUTTMAN COMPUTER NETWORK
To access a desktop computer on the Guttman Campus, all students must log in using their Guttman UserID (the same user name as CUNYFirst.) The initial password is the first letter of the student’s first name in Caps, then the first letter of the student’s last name in lowercase, and the last 6 digits of their EMPLID. By logging into any Guttman computer, students are agreeing to adhere to the “Acceptable Use of Computer Resources” policy located at the following URL: http://www.cuny.edu/about/administration/offices/CIS/security/pnp.html. Students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the policy prior to accessing Guttman’s network for the first time.
GUTTMAN WIRELESS NETWORK
Guttman offers free wireless networking throughout the 40th Street campus. Access to the network requires authorization which can be completed by providing the Guttman UserID and password. Laptop computers will automatically detect the wireless signal, if properly configured. Students and faculty can receive help connecting to and troubleshooting the wireless connection by contacting the helpdesk.
GUTTMAN WEB PORTAL
The Guttman Web Portal is the student’s dashboard to all online services that the College provides. To access the web portal, students must go to the following URL: https://my.guttman.cuny.edu and enter their Guttman UserID and password. Once logged into the web portal, students will see icons that link to services such as: student e-mail, student file storage, Digication, and various other student services.
Digication is Guttman’s student e-portfolio system. The Digication ePortfolio is an important part of the academic experience at the College. More than a place to archive work and course materials, the online system provides a way for students, faculty, staff, and peer mentors to create conversations about learning and to focus on shared goals and outcomes. Faculty will use the system to share feedback and to introduce learning outcomes, rubrics, and the assessment process. As students’ progress in their programs of study, they will adapt and expand their ePortfolios to best represent their abilities and achievements. Some might choose to share specific pages—or their entire profile—with baccalaureate colleges and/or prospective employers. All students will be using digication in their classes and will need to become familiar with the system. To access Digication, students should log into the Guttman Web portal located at the following URL: https://my.guttman.cuny.edu.
THE CUNY PORTAL
The CUNY Portal provides access to various enterprise resources, such as the eMall. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the eMall’s deep discounts on goods and services offered to the CUNY Community, including free software downloads.
In order to register for a CUNY Portal account, students must go to www.cuny.edu and click the Log-in link. The Portal Log-in page will be presented. From here, click the “Register for a New Account” and choose “Current Student” from the list. Then follow all on-screen instructions to create your account.
