Landing : Athabascau University

Logging in

Last updated August 29, 2012 - 4:06pm by Jon Dron

If you are not logged in, at the top of each page you will see options to do so. Note that there are different links depending on whether you have an Athabasca University user ID or you are an invited guest. Just click the relevant link to be presented with the login form.

You must have an Athabasca University user ID on the system,  or be an invited guest, to log in. If you log in to other Athabasca systems such as Moodle, email or MyAU, you may also access the Landing, and you should use the same user name and password. If you are a guest you should have received an email with joining instructions.

Logging in will allow you to see content intended for internal use, join groups, participate in discussions, share files, photos and ideas with others.

The Landing is a closed community, though members may share anything they create on it with the rest of the world and the public may comment on things you post- IF and only if you allow them to view it.

All comments from people who are not logged in are automatically quarantined so that you must approve them before they are visible to anyone else. If you think the comment is inappropriate or spam, simply delete it or, if you want to procrastinate over it for a while, ignore it. If you do decide to keep it, remember that it is your decision and therefore your responsibility: please don't accept spam or messages with links to dubious sites!

About guest access

Guest access to the Landing is by invitation only. If you do not have an existing AU login, you must be invited by a member of AU staff (if you are a student and wish to invite someone, please do so via a staff member). We will ask for contact information for the invited guest and a cut-off date at which point the guest may have access rights removed. This may, of course, be extended at any time if a request for this is received from the sponsoring staff member.

The process of logging in for guest access is very similar to that used by AU members, though you will need to click the 'guest login' link instead of the AU student/staff login link. There are a few other small differences - redirection does not always work for guests and there will be different options for changing your password if you are a guest, but otherwise guests get to see much the same as everyone else on the site.
