If you're new to Davidson, Technology & Innovation (T&I) has the resources to help you get successfully set up with all your technology needs—from setting up your network account to getting the software you might need.
T&I provides each student with a network account (used for email, Moodle, and other campus services) before they arrive on campus—this account gives you access to essential tools and services every student needs. Your Davidson account is protected by Duo Two-factor Authentication and you'll enroll in Duo as part of your account setup.
While most students choose to bring a computer, it’s not required. Visit a computer lab or check out a laptop from one of our kiosks. If you need a computer for the semester, you may apply to get a loaner laptop. Quantities are limited and are allocated by financial need.
Check out our Getting Started For Students article to learn how you can get started with your technology needs at Davidson.
Faculty & Staff
Your Davidson network account (your davidson.edu email address and password, plus Duo Two-factor Authentication) connects you to the network and provides access to the tools you need to teach and work at Davidson. In addition to your account, we work with your department to provide each faculty and staff member with a computer that meets the demands of their position.
When you join Davidson, your orientation session will include important information about IT security—topics include password and data security, managing phishing attempts and more.
T&I is committed to supporting faculty research and instruction. Our classrooms are equipped with audiovisual technology to facilitate presentations and interaction. Moodle is our learning management system—your home for course management—and the library's Digital Learning team provides consulting for applying technology in courses. T&I supports research and academic computing needs through the Ada Lovelace Research Computing Cluster.
T&I provides the core services and software you need to be productive and contribute to your department’s business goals in pursuit of Davidson’s mission.
