(This article pertains to the Chromebooks available at the Norrington Library at the Parkville Campus, and the Gilbert, AZ Campus)
You can use the Academic Chromebook as a fully functional Chromebook, or you can jump right into your Student Virtual Desktop.
To bypass the full Chrome OS experience and get right to your Student Virtual Desktops, on the login screen, click the Apps button in the bottom left, then click Citrix Workspace.
Next, log into your Virtual Desktop using your Student ID and password, click the checkbox and Log On.
Click the Desktops Tab at the top, then click your desktop below.
You are now in your Student Virtual Desktop with all needed software for courses at Park University. Please remember to save your work to Google Docs or OneDrive as these desktops will not save files from one session to another.
To use the full functionality of the Chromebook, click the Next button on the login screen.
You will be directed to the Single Sign On for Park University. Enter your Student ID number and password, then click the Log In button.
Here, you have the full functionality of the Chromebook.
Being logged into the Chromebook means your Chrome browser will load MyPark automatically, and the Mail and Drive icons on the shelf will bring up your Park Email and Park Google Drives for you when you click on them; no need to sign in again. You can use the icons on the shelf at the bottom to natively launch a Zoom meeting as well as access your Student Virtual Desktops and Apps.
When saving a file or document, please make sure you save it to Office 365 OneDrive or your Google Docs. When you sign out of the Chromebook or turn it off, the Chromebook will not save or keep anything. Please make sure you upload anything you wish to keep to your OneDrive or Google Docs. The Google Drive icon on the shelf below is already tied to your Park Account for ease.
