Spring semester’s here, so what do you need to do to stay on top of your OTC game? Bookmark this blog! Utilizing these reliable resources and tech tips could turn your so-so semester into a triumphant term.
- Sync your OTC email to your phone.
I know, who cares about email, amiright? I mean, nobody! — except for the people who help you book your classes and let you know if there are any problems, the people who disperse your financial aid, and all your instructors ever. It’s the easiest way for you to keep up with important campus news and to communicate with people at OTC. Follow these step-by-step instructions to sync your OTC email to your iPhone or Android.
- Sign up for emergency text alerts.
Emergencies happen! Ice storms! Snow! There could be a chance to stay home in your pajamas and do absolutely nothing! Texts cover everything from class cancellations and campus closings to severe weather alerts and security incidents. You can sign up to receive emergency text messages at otc.edu/text.
- Get Canvas support when you need it.
Everybody needs some Canvas help sometimes. Bring your Canvas-related questions and e-text access issues to IC 104 for one-on-one help. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org for support.
- Take advantage of OTC’s free tutoring services.
If you have ever thought, “Maybe I need somebody to look at this before I turn it in…” We have you covered!
