Cisco Anyconnect lets you log in with NetID!

If you use Cisco Anyconnect, you’ve probably been annoyed by having to remember a separate password from your NetID to log in. We’ve been annoyed by it too, so we’re making an update to Cisco Anyconnect that will allow you to log in with your NetID and NetID password. Your NetID is the login you use for PowerSchool.

This update will happen on Tuesday, October 8 at 3pm. There may be about 10 minutes of downtime during the update. After the update, you will be able to use your NetID and NetID password to log in to Cisco Anyconnect:

Additionally, your old password (which was probably something like JSm1th@SDF324) will no longer work.

Edpuzzle – Interactive Video Creator

The problem of playing an information video to a whole class may include:

  1. Student disengaged after the beginning 2 minutes
  2. Too much information for students to understand on the spot
  3. You can’t pause and explain everything

Well, with the use of Edpuzzle.com, you can have a way to maintain student engagement and provide a necessary supplementary explanation while playing a video – free and fast.

What you will need to do is:

  • Create an Edpuzzle account.

  • Go through the steps to crop the video and insert different types of questions.

  • Test run before you finish editing.
