This article is part of the

Student Survival Guide Series

These are guides provided by the E-Warrior Digital Life and Learning Program to help students find information that they need to get started and to use the technology offered by WSU.

Featured Tool: Notability

Watch our instructional video!

About Notability

Notability was developed for the iPad by Ginger Labs. Notability powerfully integrates handwriting, PDF documents, typing, recording, and organizing of notes. It allows you to freely share through the integration of many other tools such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Email, Twitter, printing and so much more. You can use this app to capture notes on PDF documents during class, workshops and other get togethers.

Many students here at Winona State will begin using their iPads for taking notes during class. Notability is the perfect app for that. You will find Notability to be easy for its functionality, note organization system, and ability to detect a stylus.

  1. Explore your ideas with words, photographs & sketches
  2. Iterate easily with your team
  3. Create insightful content to express your vision
  4. Learn something new by listening, reading and writing
  5. Synchronize notes with recordings
  6. Travel light and take your projects anywhere
  7. Organize information in a way that suits you

Geek Speak 101: VPN

What is VPN?

VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. Cisco AnyConnect VPN is pre-installed on your WSU laptop and can be used to connect to the WSU network when you are off-campus. This software is available to both students and employees.

WSU's VPN differs from commercial VPN solutions such as NordVPN, ExpressVPN, and Private Internet Access VPN in that it does not offer advanced privacy for everyday browsing. Instead, WSU's VPN solution simply ensures a dedicated, secured, encrypted connection to the WSU network for access to work-based or class-based resources (such as network storage drives).

It is unnecessary to leave WSU VPN connected at all times unless you're actively performing work or class tasks while off campus.

What is Cisco AnyConnect VPN?

Using the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client software, you can connect a WSU laptop to the WSU network from off-campus. The data sent over our VPN is encrypted to preserve security. This connection enables the same network access you have while on-campus. This includes:

  • Certain WSU-specific web applications that may not work from off-campus.
  • Network storage drives (e.g., personal storage, class storage, departmental storage, "R drive," or "S drive" etc.)

How do I use Cisco AnyConnect VPN?

The Cisco AnyConnect VPN software is pre-installed on your WSU laptop. Look for the Cisco folder in your Windows Start Menu or macOS Applications folder to get started. The Cisco AnyConnect VPN app can be found there.

VPN is not usually necessary on desktop computers that live on campus in offices. If your WSU desktop computer is unable to access specific network resources, please contact WSU Tech Support.

Which VPN connection do I use?

WSU offers two specific VPN connections: The tunnel.winona.edu VPN is for student access. The ot.winona.edu VPN is for employee access. OT stands for Other Tunnel.

Both VPN connections offer industry-standard security measures, they simply divide off resources from one another.

When using VPN, ensure you type in tunnel.winona.edu if you are a student and ot.winona.edu if you are an employee.
