Drones

The Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning maintains an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), most commonly known as a drone. A drone is an aircraft without a human pilot aboard. The drone is operated under remote control by a human operator on the ground and can be used for many applications including aerial photography.

Faculty who wish to learn more about utilizing a drone for use in course teaching or research should contact Scott Rutzmoser (scr211) or Steve Lichak (sjl4).

Lightboard

The Lightboard is a glass "chalkboard" pumped full of light. It is available for creating forward-facing presentations with the ability to write on the glass in front of you. The writing appears to "glow" to the viewer. It can be used to create lecture content, presentations for assignments, concept explanations, and more. Lehigh's Lightboard is located inside the One Button Studio in room 522A inside EWFM Library.

Transition Guide for AFS Static Websites

Library and Technology Services is making a minor change to the way in which we provide hosting for simple static web sites at Lehigh. The change involves the file system wherein the pages are stored, and it should be completely transparent to most users. All of the files will automatically be migrated to the new system, and visitors to the web sites will not see any difference. For anyone who has made changes to their sites within the last year or so, the procedures for making changes to your site going forward will not change.

Installing and Using MobaXterm

You can use the (Windows-based) terminal/file transfer application MobaXterm to move, copy, paste, and delete files to and from your Lehigh webspace. MobaXterm uses the following SFTP settings:

Remote host: ssh.lehigh.edu
Username: your Lehigh username
Port Number: 22
Password: your Lehigh password

Static Webspace Overview

What is Static Webspace?

Static webspace is an area where you can place files that can be accessed by a Lehigh web server, which will deliver them to a web browser in response to an appropriate request. In other words, files you put here can be seen on the web.

Access Static Webspace (MacOS)

Lehigh computing accounts for faculty, staff, students, and departments (so-called "in-accounts") are all automatically provisioned with an area in which files can be placed that will be accessible on the web. This area is known as the account's static webspace. New users no longer need to do anything to "set up" the webspace, but they may need to install the tools and become familiar with the procedures to access it.

Access Static Webspace (Windows)

Lehigh computing accounts for faculty, staff, students, and departments (so-called "in-accounts") are all automatically provisioned with an area in which files can be placed that will be accessible on the web. This area is known as the account's static webspace. New users no longer need to do anything to "set up" the webspace, but they may need to install the tools and become familiar with the procedures to access it.

Refreshing portlets in the Portal

To refresh a portal "portlet" (also called channels, these are display areas within a portal tab), follow these instructions for your particular Web browser.

Google Chrome

  1. Right-click within/inside the portal portlet.
  2. A menu will appear. Select the Reload option.

Assisted Website Development with WordPress

WordPress is an open-source website/blog creation tool that allows users to develop their own websites without code using a rich set of hosted tools.  It is one of the most well-known and easy-to-use blogging platforms and content management systems (CMS) available.  LTS recommends this service for the development of academic-focused projects by Lehigh staff, faculty and students.
