Installing JMP

JMP is a suite of computer programs for statistical analysis developed by SAS. JMP is available for faculty, staff, and students. If you are required to use this program for a class, you are able to install the software on your personal computer. Goucher offers two ways to access JMP:

Use JMP on Horizon

JMP on Horizon allows you to use the program without having to install it on your computer. You just need to install a small client in order to access the Horizon server. For instructions, visit the Horizon myApps page.

Install JMP on your computer

Horizon MyApps

What is Horizon MyApps?

Horizon MyApps is a site that allows Goucher users to run specialty software from their own computer through the Horizon Client application. The specialty software is actually running on a Goucher server although it appears to be running from your own computer.

Examples of student software:

  • SPSS
  • MATLAB
  • JMP
  • MS Office 2013 for Windows

Examples of faculty/staff software (dependent on department):

  • Image Now
  • PowerFAIDS
  • PowerCampus
  • Raiser’s Edge
  • MS Office 2013 for Windows

NOTE: If you are on a Mac, some programs you can only access through Horizon (examples include PowerCampus and Raisers Edge).

How do I run Horizon MyApps?

Before you begin…

  • On-campus users must be connected to GoucherWifi (not the GoucherGuest wifi signal)
  • Off-campus users must make a VPN connection to the Goucher network.

From your PC or Mac computer:

  1. Open a browser on your computer and go to https://myapps.goucher.edu.
  2. Download and install the “VMWare Horizon Client” on your computer.
  3. After downloading and installing the Horizon client, you are presented with this screen (below). Enter myapps.goucher.edu to continue.

4 .Login with your Goucher username and password.

You only have to configure the Horizon Client Server on your computer once. The next time you launch this software, just double-click the MyApps.Goucher.Edu icon and enter your Goucher username and password to continue.

Saving and Accessing your Files

Students

For students doing work on the Horizon programs, you will need to access and save your work files through Darwin. The following linked article details the entire process:

Darwin and Horizon (Students)

Faculty/Staff

When working on Horizon, Faculty/Staff must save their files to the hard drive on their own computers. During the initial Horizon setup process, you may have been prompted to allow access to local and removable storage. If you selected it then, you can skip this section. Otherwise, below are instructions on how to set that up:

For Mac Users:

  1. Click VMware Horizon Client menu (make sure the Horizon application is currently selected, and it will appear in the top left corner)
  2. Select Preferences
  3. Click the Sharing tab
  4. Click the plus (+) sign
  5. Browse for the folder you would like to make available, then click “Add”.
  6. The new location will then appear in the Folder list. Close Preferences when done.

Then once you try to open a file on any of the Horizon programs, look for [selected folder] on [computername] from the Look-In list.

For PC Users: 

  1. Click the gear icon in the top right corner of the window
  2. Select Sharing
  3. Click ADD
  4. Browse for the folder you would like to make available and click OK

When you save a file, the location you added above will appear as [selected folder] on [computername] in the folder list.

Can I run Horizon MyApps from my phone or tablet?

Yes! A “VMWARE Horizon Client” app is available for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.

Is there anything I can do if I have technical problems?

If your computer freezes or you have other problems, try the following:

  1. From the VMWare Horizon Client window (not inside one of the software programs), click the gear icon in the upper right and select RESET.
  2. Uninstall the VMWare Horizon Client and reinstall it.
  3. For Sharing issues:
    • On Mac: Go to System Preferences. Under “Sharing” select “allow access to [username].”
    • On PC: Go to the gear in the top right corner of the window. Under “Sharing” select “allow access to [username].”

If neither of these steps corrects your problem, contact the IT Help Desk at helpdesk@goucher.edu for further assistance.

Darwin and Horizon (for Students)

For Goucher students that are doing work on programs accessed through Horizon (SPSS, MatLab, etc.), your work files will need to be stored and accessed on your user folder on Darwin (the network storage drive for students). Below are instructions for how to use Darwin and Horizon based on your computer’s operating system:

Adding your Office 365 email account to your mobile device

This page provides instructions on how to set up your Office 365 email account on your mobile device, whether it be a tablet or smartphone running Android or iOS.  The settings and instructions have been tested to the fullest extent possible. From feedback and support postings on the vendor/manufacturer’s websites we recognize that these settings may not function properly under all circumstances.

Not sure if you have an Office 365 email account or not?
If your email address ends in ‘@goucher.edu’ (Ex: John.Doe@goucher.edu), you most likely have your email account on Office 365.
If you have an @mail.goucher.edu email account, follow this article instead: Adding your mail.goucher.edu email account to a mobile device

Microsoft Outlook Mobile App

 

 

 

For both iOS and Android, there is a Microsoft Outlook app in both App Stores that we highly recommend using to set up your email on your mobile device. The setup process is very easy, and the app automatically integrates your calendar and email all into one application, as well as allow you to add other email accounts if you wish.

Step 1: Download the Microsoft Outlook App from your App Store and run it. It will prompt you to log in. The format to type in is as follows:

(your username)@goucher.edu (Ex: jodoe001@goucher.edu)

Step 2: On the next screen, type in your Goucher account password.

Step 3: After login is completed, it will ask if you want to add another account; you can either choose to or skip and go straight to your inbox.

     iOS Mail App

For Android, we do not recommend anything other than the Outlook app because of how different phone manufacturers set up their mail applications.
For iOS we still highly recommend the Outlook app, but the stock Mail app is still an option if you wish to set it up there. Here is the process for setting up your Goucher email account (as of iOS 11):

Step 1: Open the Settings app, and scroll down until you see “Accounts and Passwords”. Choose that, and click the “Add Account” button. The mailbox type is “Exchange”.

Step 2: In the email field, type your full email address. The description field can be set to whatever you want (“Goucher”, for instance). Click “Next” in the top corner.

Step 3: In the email field, type your full email address. The description field can be set to whatever you want (“Goucher”, for instance). Click “Next” in the top corner.

Step 4: A pop-up will come up asking if you want to “Configure Manually” or “Sign In”. Choose “Configure Manually”.

Step 5: A new field will show for your password; type in your Goucher account password, then click “Next”.

Step 6: A new group of settings will appear. The below screenshot shows the correct information to put in the fields. Once you are finished, click “Next”.

(Email: Your full email address)(Server: outlook.office365.com)(Domain: goucher.edu)(Username: [Your username]@goucher.edu)(Password: Your Goucher account password)

Step 7: The final screen will ask what items you want to import with  your account. Mail is required, but you can also choose the other items if you wish. Click “Save” to confirm the account is added.

Step 8: Open your Mail app, and your Goucher email account should now appear. Note: You may need to press and swipe from the top down to refresh the view.

Adding your mail.goucher.edu email account to a mobile device

Undergraduate students that enrolled prior to Fall 2018 have their email accounts on mail.goucher.edu. As mail.goucher.edu is on Gmail, we recommend using the Gmail app to add your email account to your mobile devices (phone/tablet). These instructions apply to both iOS and Android.

If you do not already have the Gmail app installed:

Open the App Store for your device, download the Gmail app, and open the app. There will be a Sign In button that takes you to the Gmail login page.

If you already have the Gmail app installed:

Follow Gmail’s instructions for adding another account, located here. You will choose “Google” as the type of account.

Signing In

You will eventually be taken to a sign-on page for Gmail. The address you type in for your account is: (your Goucher username)@mail.goucher.edu (see below screenshot):

You will be re-directed to the Goucher Student E-mail Log-in. Type in your Goucher username and password. Remember to check the Remember Me box so you do not have to login again.

If everything is set up correctly, you should be taken back to the Gmail app and your account will be added.

Laptop Locker FAQs

Q: I tried to check out a laptop, and it’s telling me I’m not able to! What’s wrong?

A: There are several reasons you might not be able to check out a laptop. Please contact us at helpdesk@goucher.edu, and we’ll figure out what the issue is as soon as possible.

Q: How do I know if the locker recognizes that I returned a laptop?

A: After returning a laptop, you should see a screen on the locker display that shows a summary of how long you’ve had the laptop. You should also receive an email confirmation that states the date and time you returned the laptop. If this screen does not pop up, please contact us at helpdesk@goucher.edu to see what could be preventing a successful return. Please keep in mind that if you do not connect the charger cable, it is still considered checked out and will still count toward your time limit.

Q: I just checked out a laptop, but it doesn’t turn on.

A: First, try pressing the power button to turn it on. The power button for the Lenovo laptops is located on the right side of the laptop. Sometimes, a previous borrower may have shut down the laptop before returning it! If it doesn’t power on, return it and check out another one. Sometimes, the laptops aren’t inserted into the kiosk bay correctly and don’t charge. Returning it to the locker will likely allow it to charge again.

Q: How do I borrow a laptop for longer than 6 hours?

A: There is no way to borrow a laptop for longer than 6 hours without incurring late fees. You can return the laptop during the 6 hours and immediately check out another one if they are available.

Q: Can I have someone else return the laptop for me?

A: The laptop must be returned by the person who borrowed it. You are asked to swipe your OneCard when you check it out and again when you check it back in. If you give your OneCard to someone to check out a laptop for you, you are violating the borrowing terms and the person returning it may lose access to the locker. Please note, as the owner of the OneCard used to check out the laptop, you are held responsible for loss or any damage that may occur.

Q: I returned the laptop but forgot to connect the charger. What do I do?

A: Contact the Help Desk at helpdesk@goucher.edu immediately. If you continue to check out a laptop without plugging in the charger, you may be charged a late fee.
