    In today’s world, a password alone is not enough.

    Two-Step verification for Brown accounts is now available for all students, staff, and Brown-paid faculty. This feature, which uses a product called Duo, will protect your Brown account even if someone is able to access or guess your password. It combines something you know (your password) with something you have (a phone or code).

    In preparation for Windows 10’s July 29th release, CIS evaluated its compatibility with Brown services and software. 

     

    Our Recommendation

    We recommend that you do NOT immediately upgrade to Windows 10; new operating systems usually have issues that are resolved in subsequent releases.

    We also found some issues with Brown services noted in the list below.

  • Wed. 7/8 @ 10am

    Brown students, staff, and Brown-paid faculty now have unlimited access to Lynda.com courses.

  • Wed. 7/1 @ 9am

    Faculty and staff can now download and install Camtasia Studio, a screen recording & video editing software for Windows and Mac. It adds to our repertoire of similar such tools like PersonalCapture, and Ink2Go.

    We are making a change to the Eduroam wireless network to make it easier for members of the Brown community to connect.

  • Mon. 6/15 @ 9am

    If you have Windows 7 or 8, you may have been prompted to "reserve your upgrade" for Windows 10.

    Windows 10 will be released on July 29th. CIS is currently testing Windows 10 for compatibility with Brown systems and will publicize any compatibility issues on or before July 15th; the announcement will be in Morning Mail and on our website, it.brown.edu
