Box Drive is like a shared network drive without the hassle of mapping or connecting to a VPN for access.
Box Drive is here. Think of it as a shared network drive, except it doesn’t need to be mapped and you don’t connect to the UNH VPN to access it (on or off campus).

The end of the semester can be a stressful time for students and faculty. Students want to know their grade as soon as possible and faculty want to be responsive to student requests.

myCourses has a new feature that allows faculty to easily send final grades, as calculated in their myCourses gradebook, to Webcat. A student’s grade in ...

After six months, Pubpages will be decommissioned.

You can protect your internet privacy with a couple of preventative measures.
In March 2017, Congress rolled back internet privacy laws scheduled to go into effect this December, making it fair game for internet service providers to sell their customer’s internet browsing history and information without consent. This means internet service providers (ISP) will be able to create and sell to the highest bidder a profile based on private information, including their customer’s shopping...
