IT for Students
Logins on the Student Network
On Windows 7 computers, on the student (olc) network, students or teachers should log in as follows:
Username: olc\username, where username is normally firstnamesurname with no punctuation or special characters e.g. “olc\aineoreilly”.
Password: pres. Passwords are normally reset to ‘pres’ at the start of each year, and students must reset this password on first use.
If a student has forgotten their password temporary login is available as explained on a notice on the door of each computer room. Their work will be saved in a general student folder and will not be private.
A list of usernames is available in a folder on the teacher`s desk in each computer room.
On the student network (olc\) students should save their work to the H: drive, not to the Documents folder. Saving to the Documents folder saves it to that machine only and their work will not be available if a student logs on to a different machine.
To save to the H: drive:
Open “My Computer” and click on the Folders icon near the top.
Underneath the Computers folder, as a subfolder of it (you may have to click on the + symbol) find the drive marked H as:
where username is the student`s name e.g.
Within the H: drive students can make a Documents folder etc. as they wish.
