Tech Tuesdays 2019: Home

Technology at ICC

Welcome!

This guide and technology series was created with new students in mind -- particularly new students who may not yet feel 100% comfortable with some of the different technologies that will help them succeed as students at ICC.

First year student technology checklist

Student email via Gmail

Student email & Google Apps

Go to webmail.lab.icc.edu or mouse over My ICC on the ICC website (icc.edu).

Your ICC email is username@lab.icc.edu. The username is the one with letters and numbers, like ab123c.

If it's your first time logging in, use that default password: ICC##### with the last 5 #'s replaced by the last 5 digits of your social security number.

Check the Google Apps tab of this guide for more details.

 

Blackboard

Blackboard

How to get there 

Courses.icc.edu OR go to icc.edu and mouse over "My ICC" to get a dropdown list that includes Blackboard.

What is it?

It's an online learning management system. It's kind of like a classroom and planner wrapped up in one. You'll find syllabi, assignments, grades, etc. 

BIG HINT: Use Chrome or Firefox for Blackboard. NOT Internet Explorer!

Each course you have will likely be set up a little differently, so it's good to explore each course's Blackboard page to familiarize yourself with the differences.

MyAlert

MyAlert

Get emails, texts, and calls for emergencies like school closures.

How to sign up:  go to icc.edu/MyAlert and enter your full email address for the username. Then set your password by clicking the "forgot password" option.

 

Network login

ICC Network login

To log into computers on campus and to access library databases off campus, your username is still that initials and numbers scheme like ab123c and ICC##### with the last 5 digits of your social security number replacing the 5 #'s for your default password.
