Blog entry by Janice Billy
Welp my fellow friends..I was drama..I had a hard time getting into this moodle:
April 14, 2020: I sent email to Chelsea Vaughan letting her know I had a hard time getting into Moodle: she sent me back Hi Janice, your student id is: 000(My student number)
Below are the links both from our website, regarding logging in.
· With no further instructions
Then, she sent me these instructions:
In internet browsers, Internet Explorer or Firefox, enter: mynvit.ca (the myNVIT portal address will be available to you on or off campus at the same URL and a link will be available on the NVIT website under the Employees button). A logon window will appear.
Your username is: nvit.ca\ followed by a lower case n and your 7 digit student number (e.g. Colleague ID 5907 has a username of nvit.ca\n0005907).
Your password has been reset to your birthday in the following format: DDMonYYYY. For example if your birthdate is November 8, 1987 your password is reset to 08Nov1987. Note that the first letter of the month is capitalized and the month is abbreviated to three digits.
Then Brain from IT sent me:
I’ve reset your password back to your birthday and have successfully tested logging into your account.
Password format ddMmmYYYY Example: 15Apr2020
· NO FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS
My replay for him:
Invalid login, please try again
I ASKED HIM FOR SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS:
Welcome Students and Faculty to the NVIT Moodle Site! Remember to check the Announcements and Events tabs on your myNVIT homepage to find out what's going on at NVIT.
2. Username ???? nvit.ca\n000(MY STUDENT NUMBER Password: DDMONYEAR
He then responds:
Just use: Please don’t use nvit.ca\ with the username
Password is correct.
I’m glad you got in. We’re in the process of updating our guides, the only place where you may need the nvit.ca\ prefix would be with mynvit.ca portal.
CLEARLY THEY NEED SPEFIC INSTRUCTIONS:)
