Webdesk for Students
With one click, Webdesk can sign you in automatically to your online textbooks and digital academic resources AND give you access to files at school or in the cloud.
This app has been added for all students on Webdesk for easy access to their course resources. It is a lightweight alternative to carrying textbooks around all day! And it's helpful to have the necessary resources in one location. The backpack can be accessed at school or at home by logging in to Webdesk and then selecting the backpack icon.
Students have all instructional/textbook-related materials automatically assigned to their digital backpack app. Some apps/online textbooks are assigned to the backpack via TEAMS and those cannot be edited. A student's digital backpack might look something like this:
Accessing Your H and S Drives
To access your H and S Drives from Webdesk, click the My Files icon at the bottom middle of the main Webdesk page.
Then click School Network. Your H Drive is the "_Home Folder" and you will also see any S Drive folders to which you are associated.
Students: You will need to Connect your Google Account in Webdesk
How to update your password
You may need to update your password in Webdesk to ensure an easy and secure connection to your digital resources. Go to your profile on the top right, click Settings, click Sign In, and click the key under "LDAP/Active Directory". Enter your password twice and that's it!
