The Technology Assistance Center (TAC) has provided a self-help site to allow students, faculty and staff to perform many computer support tasks. There are over 200 pages, in eight categories: Windows, Mac, Linux, Mobile, Security Center, Educational Technology, Forms, and How-To Videos .
NPS instituted a self-service password management solution that allows students, staff, and faculty members to reset, unlock, or change their password. This product uses the question-and-answer security system for authentication. It provides users with a cost-efficient, safe, and secure method to reset forgotten passwords including unlocking accounts.
Videos on the portal can be accessed from on or off-campus, making it easier for students to catch up on the latest happenings at NPS or to watch a lecture they missed. The site also features monthly episodes of Inside NPS, a 30-minute show that appears regularly on the Pentagon Channel. read more
