Students,

Are you using Google Drive to its fullest potential? Have you installed and configured an antivirus program on your computer? Are you backing up your critical Kenyon files?

Come to LBIS tonight for a series of short sessions that will teach you the ins and outs of backup and antivirus best practices. Then bring your laptop and learn how to install and setup Google Drive to automatically back up your most important files.

When: Starting at 7 PM tonight (Thursday, October 3)

Where: Chalmers Classroom (lower floor of Chalmers Library, in the back by the snack machines)

What: Three 20-minute classes for Kenyon students led by Helpline Consultants

  • 7 PM: Backup Made Easy: The Ins and Outs of Safeguarding Your Data. We all know we're supposed to back up our important files. But where to begin? This session provides an overview of why it's critical to back up your important files, the backup tools Kenyon provides you, and the four backup methods that put you in control if disaster strikes. Led by Maria Sorkin '16.
  • 7:30 PM: All About Antivirus: What, Why, and How. What are the differences between viruses and malware? Where do they come from? How do you know if your computer is infected? This session demystifies the different types of malicious software floating around the interwebs and arms you with the knowledge to protect your computer and yourself. This session is a must for owners of Windows computers, especially if you're not 100% sure whether your computer's antivirus software is working and up to date. Led by Harry Hurley '14.
  • 8 PM: BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop)—Automate Backup with Google Drive. Bring your Apple or Windows laptop to this session, where you'll download, install, and configure Google Drive to automatically back up your most important files to the cloud. If you attend only one session, make it this one. Led by Edgar Martin '17.

We hope you'll join us tonight at all three sessions. For more information, or to get technology help, please call us at x5700 or Google Chat helpline@kenyon.edu.
