Now You Can Print From Your Mobile Device

Are you interested in printing from a mobile device like your tablet or phone? The Xerox networked solution provides the ability to print from mobile devices using your primary UMSL email address.
You can print a file from your mobile device by sending it to or sharing it with tritonprint@umsl.edu. You must send the file from your UMSL email account.  The file does not print directly, but rather it is sent to the Secure Release print queue.
For example, from your device, use Outlook Web Access (https://outlook.umsl.edu ) to attach a file to an email message addressed to tritonprint@umsl.edu.  The email and the attachment will be sent to the Secure Release print queue.
Note: Supported formats for attachments are:

• Office documents: Word, Excel and PowerPoint (doc, dot, docx, rtf, eml, xls, xlt, xlsx, csv, ppt, pptx, pptm)
• HTML documents (htm, html, mht)
• Text file (txt)
• PDF documents (pdf)

You will also receive a confirmation email from TritonPrint indicating how to print and what files are ready for printing as shown in the example below:

This allows you to print the file from any secure enabled printer on campus by using your UMSL ID card to release the print job.  For detail, please visit http://www.umsl.edu/tritonprint/mobile/index.html

Cerego: An Easy Tool to Help Your Students Master Key Concepts and Reinforce Foundational Knowledge

Cerego is an online tool designed for students to learn foundational concepts faster and retain them longer. Cerego’s power comes from its adaptive learning algorithm that helps the learner to manage one’s own memory using online tools. It personalizes the learning experience by providing the learner with a real-time view of what’s been learned, how well each has been learned and by promptly reminding the learner when the concepts should be reviewed for long term retention.  Consider adopting Cerego technology for courses where you need learning support that (1) acts as a supplemental tool to prepare students before class to enable them to actively participate in the classroom, and (2) provides opportunities for students to be self-directed learners and manage their own learning using Cerego.

Managing Your Email and PST Files

UMSL faculty and staff are provided with Microsoft Exchange mailboxes, offering email and calendaring capabilities.  The mailboxes have a 15 gigabyte quota; asignificant increase from the previous solution.
Many faculty and staff are familiar with a routine of archiving email messages, calendar items and other information from the server to a PST file (or

multiple files). These PST files are typically stored on your local computer or on your network drive,
but due to limitations on file size and remote availability, these solutions are no longer ideal for keeping track of your archived data. Continue reading “Managing Your Email and PST Files”
