Mobile Devices and Genesee

Author admin acount on August 10, 2010 | Print | Bookmark
This is a really high level point of reference for mobile devices and electronic resources at Genesee.

One of the basic tenets is: no guarantees.


Exchange Email

Faculty and staff need the following information on setting up access to your college email on a mobile device.

--Choose "Exchange Mail" as the type
--For the Username field, use your NetID -- i.e. mheider
--For the Email field, use your full email -- mjheider@genesee.edu
--For domain: sunygenesee
--For the email server:  mail.genesee.edu

With that information, you should be able to set up your mobile device.

REMEMBER: when you change your NetID password, you need to change your password in your mobile device(s).

Student Gmail

Student email is hosted externally at by GMail.

Click the link under the yellow email button for your mobile password to be sent to you. Gmail provides information on setting up gmail on mobile devices.

Genesis

Some mobile devices can access Genesis, others cannot. In experimentation, the iPhone and iTouch devices can log into Genesis and the Droid cannot. Devices using the Android Operating System generally cannot log into Genesis. This is an issue with the software itself; the browser inside the Android OS is not supported by the Genesis software and there is nothing that can be done by the staff at Genesee about this.


Blackboard App

There is an "App" for Blackboard that you can install on your personal device. It has limited toolset. Search for "SUNY Genesee" in the list of colleges.

WWW Site

The primary college web site, www.genesee.edu is largely device independent. In our limited experience with personal mobile devices, we have not found a device that supports web browsing that cannot access the web site.
