Mathematica Software Installation for Faculty

Wolfram Mathematica software is now available to faculty and staff at CSUSB. Wolfram Mathematica  defines the state of the art in technical computing and provides the principal computation environment for educators.

With high-powered technical capabilities, Mathematica provides an integrated and continually expanding system that covers the breadth and depth of technical computing. It hosts more than 5,000 built-in functions and powerful algorithms.

Mathematica uses the Wolfram Notebook Interface, which allows you to organize everything you do in flexible documents that include text, runnable code, dynamic graphics, and user interfaces. It also accesses the in-depth Wolfram Knowledgebase, which produces real-world data across thousands of domains in real time. Mathematica is built to be connected to everything: file formats, other languages, APIs, databases, programs, and other digital capacities.

The latest software update, Mathematica 10, introduces even more technical areas like machine learning, computational geometry, geographic computation, and device connectivity. More areas include data analysis, algebraic manipulation, image computation, and visualization.

To kick off Tech Week on Tuesday, ITS team members presented 15-minute demos from about the several systems that IT Services supports, such as the MyCoyote Schedule Planner and Identity Finder.

On Wednesday, students were taken on a Technology Open House tour through the different parts of IT Services and saw first-hand some of the exciting new technologies brought to campus, like the Student Collaboration Center in the Pfau Library (Wedge 1st Floor). Students also interacted with a personal telepresence robot in the newly renovated faculty commons, which includes a hands-on training lab, a consultation/discussion space, two small group project rooms, and a light boar lecture recording facility.

The Microsoft Office 365 Download Party was a huge success on Thursday! Students joined in for free pizza and free Office software downloads for their laptops, tablets, and phones. In case you missed the event, students, faculty and staff can still download Office 365 anytime, anywhere. Visit the ITS Software page here to install Office 365 on your devices.

Wrapping up Tech Week on Friday, ITS Team members brought one-hour Office 365 training sessions all over campus. The training sessions included topics on Outlook, Calendar, People, OneDrive, and more Microsoft Office tools.

FREE ESET Antivirus Software Installation

Is your laptop or desktop computer moving slow? It may have a virus that puts you at risk for cybercrime. Even if you’re a proud Mac owner, viruses can still make their way into your device causing programs to load slowly or stop functioning altogether.

CSUSB students, faculty, and staff are now eligible to receive a free licensing code and installation of ESET Antivirus Protection on up to three devices, including home computers. Each device will be protected from viruses, spyware, and malware for one year. ESET Antivirus is great because it eliminates virtually all threats on your PC/Mac to keep documents and private information safe.

What is spyware/malware?

Malware is software that is intended to damage or disable computer systems and it will dramatically reduce your PC’s productivity and speed.

Without antivirus protection, you may be at risk for cybercrime such as identity theft or fraud. Spyware can covertly monitor your every keystroke and send vital personal information to third parties. If you make a purchase online, for example, your credit card information can be stolen and used to make fraudulent charges.

Why do I need ESET Antivirus Software?

Laptops become susceptible to viruses from file sharing, downloading full movies, and simply from browsing on the web. While it is generally true that PC’s have a higher chance of falling victim to viruses, there are dangerous Mac-oriented malware hazards as well. As a result of being hacked by malware, all saved work on your device may be erased and personal information may be stolen.

How do I install my ESET software?

Installing ESET Antivirus is easy! Visit http://www.eset.com/us/offers/csusb/ and enter your CSUSB email address. You will receive a validation email and a unique activation key.
