Course Site

Course Site is Lehigh University's course management system.  It is based on an open-source platform called Moodle.  Although the majority of people that access Course Site are using it for course management, it can provide services in other ways.

Banner

Banner is the integrated information system used by Lehigh to support business processes. The Banner system manages student information, accounts receivable, financial aid, alumni/advancement, finance, and human resources. Banner may be accessed through Internet Native Banner (INB) or Banner Self-Service (SSB).

Malware Detection and Removal

Malware, short for malicious software, is software used to disrupt computer operation, gather sensitive information, or gain access to private computer systems. It can appear in the form of code, scripts, active content, and other software. Malware is a general term used to refer to a variety of forms of hostile or intrusive software.

Antivirus and security software

Lehigh strongly recommends that all users protect their computer by installing a recommended Antivirus program.

Remote Connectivity - the Lehigh VPN

Since the Lehigh campus network is connected to the Internet, it is possible to connect to Lehigh systems using it.  However, to do so, for most systems, one must connect through a gateway server called a VPN.  A VPN is a network system that makes a secure connection between a client computer (or device) at a remote location (such as a personal machine at home or off-campus) and a protected, private network (such as Lehigh's campus network) over an otherwise insecure public network (such as the Internet).

Lehigh Computing Accounts

The primary method for managing access to University computer resources is the Lehigh Computing Account. This account provides access to numerous secure resources based on each user's unique relationship to the University, and must be opened before it can be used.

Data Standards

The Banner System is Lehigh University’s integrated database.

Reporting and Data Requests

Banner Reporting Access

Some employees also need access to run reports from Banner by linking to Banner tables and/or views. Similar to user classes, Banner reporting roles include the tables needed for reporting from a functional area. The same procedure as above is followed to request reporting access (tables or reporting roles) for an individual.

Administrative Systems

A number of administrative systems are used to support the work of the University. Some of these systems include: Banner, Avow, Axiom, DARS, Argos, Cognos, Nolij, 25Live, and QAS.
