Login to Panopto with your WaveNet Credentials

If you’ve ever had to miss class before, then you may have asked the professor to have the session recorded via Panopto. You then received a viewing link to view the recording and all you had to do was click on the link and Presto! the recording appeared. Only one small issue with that… a little thing called “security”.

In an effort to ensure a more secure environment for all class recordings, the Panopto service has now moved to an online authentication that prompts you to log into the service with your Pepperdine WaveNet credentials.

This means that when you get a viewing link now, you may have to “login” before you can view the session. This is super easy as long as you have a current Pepperdine network ID. All you have to do is follow the 3 steps listed below to login and “Viola” you’re watching your riveting class recording in no time!

1. Select the drop-down menu for the “Sign-in using” box.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Choose the “Pepperdine Network ID” option.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Then choose “Sign In” and sign in through the Pepperdine Portal to be connected.

Install the LiveSafe App today!

 

 

 

Go ahead and take a moment to go to the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and download the LiveSafe app onto your mobile device.

The “LiveSafe” app is designed to improve communication between our University community members and Public Safety, and allows for faster emergency response in distress situations.  The app is free and available to all members of our community: students, faculty, staff, parents, visitors, and friends.

Through LiveSafe, you can submit information and chat with Public Safety in both emergency and non-emergency situations, and you can look out for your friends and loved ones by watching them get to their destination safely with SafeWalk. If you need a medical or security escort on the Malibu campus or a ride back to the Malibu campus, you can call Public Safety using the SafeRide feature.  When you submit a tip, you can attach a photo, video clip, or audio clip, and you can submit all of this information anonymously if you choose.  And, when you use LiveSafe to call 911 or contact Public Safety in an emergency, the app can track your location, which helps first responders know exactly where help is needed.

We’ve also loaded critical information resources into the app, so you now have emergency response information and contact information for key University services at your fingertips anytime, anywhere—even internationally.[i]

Here’s how you can get the app:

  1. Open Google Play or the Apple App Store on your phone. Search for “LiveSafe” and download the option with the blue shield.
  2. Tap “Sign up.” Fill in your profile information and create a password.  (You are welcome to use your personal, non-Pepperdine e-mail address. We suggest that you do not use the same username and password as you use for the Pepperdine Central Authentication Server.)
  3. “Pepperdine University” may pop-up if you are close to the campus. If so, tap “Yes.” Otherwise tap “Change” to select “Pepperdine University” as your institution.

[i]  Most of the app’s features will work internationally, so long as you have a Wi-Fi or cellular data connection.  You will still be able to submit tips and information to Public Safety, and you will be able to utilize the SafeWalk feature.  However, the “Call 911” option is programmed for US emergency dispatch only and will not automatically route to local first responders. In an emergency situation overseas, it will be important to dial the correct 911-equivalent number for your location. You can find this information at http://travel.state.gov.

Printing and Copying Services at Pepperdine Law

MX-M354N-L

To send a print job start here: print.pepperdine.edu

To setup your printing go here for complete instructions.

Color Printing is $0.35 per side of a page 

Black and White Printing is $0.06 per side of a page

Print accounting and print charges are managed by the University.  

Charges go to your Pepperdine ID card’s linked Waves Cash Global account.

You cannot print if you do not have funds on deposit in your Waves Cash Global account.

 

 

Pepperdine has multi-function devices (MFDs) from Sharp (you can still call them copiers but they’re much more).

Students, Faculty, Staff, and Guests can print, scan, or copy on the MFDs using an account associated with their Pepperdine ID cards.  Students buy copy and print credit here:   https://get.cbord.com/pepperdine/full/prelogin.php 

All students can print to all Sharp MFDs in public areas at any of the Pepperdine Southern California campuses (click here to learn about print credit for students at school of law). This includes the color-enabled Sharp MFD in the Law Library public area.  Printing in color or black and white is possible and a document with a mix of color and black and white pages will only incur the higher cost for color on the pages where there is color.

Typically, print jobs are sent via the web using a web-browser interface.  In nearly all circumstances, your document that you want to print must be in PDF format.

You transfer/upload your PDF file to the print.pepperdine.edu site and select your parameters (number of copies, etc.).  If you want to print in color, you want to select a “findmecolor” solution (see video here) or “findmebw” for black and white.

Then once the document is uploaded, you go to the copier nearest you — Law School? go to the Law Library and see the copiers near the public services desk.

Swipe your ID card or type in your Wavenet credentials, select the print job you want to “release” and you have your document!

Color Copier for Printing and Copies in both B&W and Color in the Law Library

Sharp MX-3570N

The Law Library maintains a color copier for Pepperdine users.

Price per color impression is $0.35.  This means if you print a color document that is duplexed (printed on both sides) you will be charged $0.70 for that piece of paper (if there’s color on both sides).

Note that if you choose to print a document that has some pages that are black and white and some that contain color, each black and white page will be charged at $0.06/impression (side of a page of paper) and the color impressions (sides of a page) will be charged at $0.35 each.  Yep, it’s a kinda smart system.

To access this color copier using your laptop or other device please go to THIS PAGE for detailed instructions.

Shared Account Users: For instructions on how to print documents from a personal computer using a shared account, please review this guide.

Information on School of Law provided print credit to School of Law students is HERE.

To do a quick color (or B&W) print job:

  1. Make sure your document is in PDF format
  2. Make sure you have money on your ID Card (to add or to check go here) — If you don’t have funds on your account (separate from the law school printing account) you can’t print anything.
  3. Using your Chrome browser go to https://print.pepperdine.edu/
  4. You will need to login to this page with you Wavenet credentials
  5. Then click on the Web Print option on the left hand list of options then click on Submit a Job
  6. Follow the prompts (pick FindmeColor or FindmeBW)  Note that the charge for color is $0.35 per impression (but only for the pages with COLOR on them, pages with black and white are charged at $0.06)
  7. Select your number of copies (that’s your only option on this page – at this point this service does not support duplexing, or stapling)
  8. Upload your file — or drag it to the designated area on the screen.
  9. You will need to go to the copier to Release the job
  10. At the copier, login using your Wavenet credentials
  11. Select your print job from the list and release it

To Make a Copy

  1. Make sure you have money on your ID Card (to add or to check go here) — If you don’t have funds on your account (separate from the law school printing account) you can’t copy anything.
  2. At the copier, login using your Wavenet credentials
  3. Select Device Functions
  4. Select Copy
  5. Follow the normal prompts as you make your copies
  6. NOTE: This system absolutely will NOT allow you to go beyond your available funds in your account (see #1 above to check your balance).  For this reason, you may get logged off immediately after you do your first copy job. To learn how to ensure that you don’t get logged off do a “Job Build” to avoid needing to log in for each successive copy job you want to do.

 

 

Kronos 7: Timekeeping at Pepperdine

Have you figured out how to use Kronos 7 yet? Perhaps you’re still struggling with the basics of getting around and entering your information correctly. Here are a few resources which you might find helpful.

First, a video introduction to Kronos 7:

The video is helpful, but still limited. So here are some recommended help-guides for more in-depth and user-specific reference (students and adjuncts take special note):

Support for Kronos is provided by the Payroll Department at (310) 506-4636 or check out their Finance and Payroll FAQs.

Please note that while Google Chrome and newer versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer are fine browsers, Kronos still works best in Mozilla Firefox. Whatever browser you use, be sure it is up to date and that you have the most recent Java patches installed for the best experience possible.

Pepperdine Google Suite

Welcome to the incredibly usefully and incessantly expanding world of Google! Here, you will learn about some of the relevant Google Apps that may help you throughout not only your education career, but also your future life.

You can access Google Apps through your @pepperdine.edu account. Google Apps includes the following components: Gmail, Sheets, Calendar, Sites, Google Drive (formerly Google Docs), Google +, Hangouts, Groups, Contacts, and many more. To learn more about these components and how they will be useful to you at Pepperdine School of Law, please watch the video at the bottom of the page.

 

Google Drive

Google Drive is a very useful tool that can be accessed anytime, from anywhere, via the internet or the Google Drive App. Some of the feature of Google Drive allow you to:

  1. Share files with people, such as meeting minutes, class notes, and task lists
  2. Collaborate on conference presentations with colleagues
  3. Edit student papers with in-text comments
  4. Backup files (you can never have too many copies!)
  5. Work from home without the need of Remote Desktop or your Work Computer
  6. And more…..

You can even use Google Drive to create and share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations online. Although Google Drive has its own applications, you can download the Google files to your desktop and they will open in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Collaborate on projects without the hassle of emailing files and version tracking. Multiple Users can edit the Google files at the same time, without conflict. Revisions are saved automatically and Google Drive has a revision tracking feature so you can see what changes were made, when.

Google Drive can also be used as an online repository for all of your important documents. These documents can then be accessed from any computer with Internet access at any time. Watch this video to learn how you can upload documents to Google Drive as well as convert documents (i.e., doc, pdf, docx, html, and other files) into Google Documents.

Don’t forget, Google Drive now offers limitless storage for Pepperdine Google users. That’s right, unlimited!

Our friends at University IT have put up some helpful guide information. Check it out today.

Here’s another great article on Google drive with helpful video. Anson Alexander has done great work to make the product accessible to new users–very thorough.

 

Google Docs

Google Docs is the informal predecessor of Google Drive, if you will. Google Docs allows you to create documents from scratch or from pre-set templates as well as sort your already created documents.

Through Templates, folks at Pepperdine using Google Apps can now share private templates for presentations, documents (like stationary or departmental memos) and spreadsheets. We now have our own private template gallery. Anything you make in Google Docs (or import into Docs from Word, etc) can be offered as a template, shared and rated by the Pepperdine community.

If you’ve never used Templates before in Google Docs, here’s a link to their help page: Google Help: Google Docs Templates

Google Docs has also upped their collaboration tools through quick and easy comments that can be placed on selected portions of a document. If you’ve been staying out of the Cloud, there are some real incentives to get in now.

 

Google Sheets

Google Sheets is a free online spreadsheet tool that is similar to Microsoft Excel. This tool has fewer formatting features that its software-based counterpart, but can be accessed from any computer with Internet access. You can also share spreadsheets with others and save the spreadsheet as multiple file formats including (but not limited to) XLS, PDF, and HTML. Watch this video to learn more about Google Spreadsheets.

 

Google Slides

Google Slides is a free, online presentation tool that you can use to create, edit, present, and share slideshows. It is very similar to Microsoft PowerPoint, with fewer formatting features. Much like most other Google Apps, Google Slides allows you to collaborate on slideshow presentation with unlimited users. Click here to watch a video on the basics of creating Google Presentations.

 

 

Google Calendar

Google Calendar is Google’s scheduling calendar service that can assist you with time-management through easy organization and helpful reminders. This is nothing short of the most open and configurable calendar offering available today. And while there is a wealth of things you might never do, it never feels like that power gets in the way. If you just want to login and check your appointments and type in new ones you can do that. If you want to go a step farther and have it email you a daily appointment list, that’s available. If you want your cell phone to alert you, that’s just another click away.

 

 

Google Hangouts

Google Hangouts is a platform where you can communicate with multiple people through messaging, SMS, video/audio chat and VOIP. It can be challenging to locate and contact other members of such a large community as Pepperdine; with community integration, this is a gem. Even better, with no install or configuration like Skype, you simply login and start talking.

 

Google Sites

Google Sites is a free and easy way to create and share webpages as well as a nice place to brainstorm and manage projects. Its an easy basic wiki withalmost no ramp-up time needed due to no real training being required. Just decide a name for your knowledge base and go. To learn more about Google Sites, click here.

 

 

Please watch the video below to learn more about these components and how they will be useful to you at Pepperdine School of Law.
