Virtual School Tech Briefing: Student Edition: March 25th

Want to check out ebooks from our virtual library (Destiny)? Then you must keep reading … This news is brought to you from Ms. Rebecca ( ) in the Library.:
We reset all the passwords for Destiny last week.  It’s now really easy to get into Destiny/your own account.
  • Use your barcode ID # on your school ID.  If you don’t know your number, just email me and I will tell you! This is now the username and password to get into your personal Destiny account. ( )
  •  Why do you want your own account? We now have OverDrive ebooks so you can borrow ebooks from the Library catalog!  Or, if you are in an area other than China, you can download the Sora app and borrow books that way.  We are under the Pearl River Delta Libraries drop down menu.  Send me a message if you need help accessing either your Destiny account or the ebooks in the catalog/on the Sora app.  Happy Reading.
Watch the video here for step by step instructions: Destiny eBook Instructions
In addition for those students who are attempting to use EBSCO for research:
Some students have reported that they are not able to access EBSCO through Canvas. I am working to fix that problem.  For now,  here is a work around, so try this new log in.  Go to and then type in the user ID ncpachina and password Library2020! when the log in screen appears.  Please let me know if that works for you.  And of course, let me know what else I can do to help in your research!

Virtual School Tech Briefing: Student Edition : February 28th

One of the biggest tech challenges of online school has been finding a way for students to download or watch a video from class relatively quickly. As teachers we’ve used resources such as: watching from Canvas, downloading from Canvas, downloading from teams, sending Sharepoint links, uploading to Stream and some teachers have even found their way on to Bilibili 网络教学面临的最大技术挑战之一,是找到一种让学生在课堂上相对快速地下载或观看视频的方法。作为教师,我们使用的资源包括:将视频Canvas上下载、Teams上下载、发送Sharepoint链接、上传到Stream以及有部分教师甚至找到自己的途径去使用Bilibili

As we move further into online school we’re looking to create a seamless way for you to be able to reach these videos by syncing your classes ( in Teams ) with Onedrive 随着我们进一步深入网络教学,我们正在创造一个无缝的方式,让你可以用Onedrive让视频同步到你的Teams课堂上。
