The provision of educational activities takes place in absence of software or connectivity problems. The solutions adopted foresee the use with the most widespread operating systems (Windows, Linux, Mac Os X) and with the most widespread browsers (Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome) both in the Desktop and in the Mobile environment (Laptops, Tablets, Smartphone).
As regards accessibility from mobile devices, access is guaranteed from iOS, Windows Mobile and Android systems.
The minimum requirements of the systems, depending on the technological update, are published on the CdS website by the 31 August preceding the beginning of the educational activities and are maintained until the 31 August of the following year. During this period, any updates to the systems will not be able to change the profile of the minimum requirements except for reasons related to compliance with safety standards. In this case students will be immediately notified by offering a technical support service.
Online activities are accessed through an Internet connection of adequate capacity and in any case referable to standard connectivity offers on the market.
Internet connectivity costs are borne by the student.
Single Sign On and access to University online services
Access to the University's online services is via an integrated system, through a unique and secure identification and reception procedure for the user (Single Sign On).
The user, through a single entry of user-id and password (Single Sign On system) can access all the environments to which it is enabled.
In particular, the Single Sign On allows access to ESSE3, a portal for managing the student's administrative procedures and career. The platform provides on-line the possibility of carrying out administrative activities that do not require the physical presence of the student due to legal obligations. To this end, users are provided with appropriate authentication systems. Among others, the system provides the following services:
- registration (and possible pre-registration) and registration of payments;
- registration for exams;
- recording of the exam test grades;
- access to all certifications and payment receipts;
- access to the student's career;
- presentation and request for modification of study plans;
- certification; teaching agenda and exam papers;
- LMS portal;
- University Library System;
- WiFi connection within the university premises (where available).
Accessibility from mobile devices
All the resources are fully accessible from mobile devices both through responsive layer and design and through dedicated APPs. Between these:
- UNIMORE Guide (all guides in digital format);
- UNIMORE Calendar (access to class schedules, classrooms and exam sessions);
- Unimagic for UNIMORE (access to the student profile and career);
- Blackboard Collaborate (access to the Videoconferencing environment)
Access from mobile devices for educational content is guaranteed by software design that avoids the inclusion of iFrame and the use of Flash content in favor of an HTML5 structure and video content in formats compatible with mobile standards.
