Student Toolbox

Whether you are a new student at RIC or a seasoned veteran, the pages on this Web site will be useful. Think of it as one stop shopping for technology information at RIC. It covers how to obtain an email address, how to figure out whether your classroom is "technology-enhanced", how to locate maps of RIC's wireless network on campus, how to be a Blackboard power user, and more. 

Most of the information here can be found by searching through the main RIC Web site. Our site pulls that information together to answer most of your questions without having to leave the Toolbox. Our goal is to help you discover most of what you need to know before you walk into the classroom on the first day of a new semester. As technology changes, so will these pages.
