WEBVTT 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:10.000 [music] 00:00:16.000 --> 00:00:20.000 ELLIS: hello, and welcome to WOUtech tv, My Name is Michael Ellis 00:00:20.000 --> 00:00:25.000 and today I'm going to walk you through the WOU alert Emergency notification system. 00:00:25.000 --> 00:00:31.000 For those of you who may not be aware, WOU alert is the name of a system 00:00:31.000 --> 00:00:38.000 from a company called Everbridge that we use notify, well, everybody in the event of a natural disaster 00:00:38.000 --> 00:00:44.000 or some other significant event on campus that we need to notify everyone in a timely manner. 00:00:44.000 --> 00:00:50.000 Most importantly, it allows you to determine how you want to be contacted 00:00:50.000 --> 00:00:53.000 and in what order. Let me show you how it works. 00:00:53.000 --> 00:00:58.000 To access WOU alert the easiest way to get there is from the WOU homepage. 00:00:58.000 --> 00:00:64.000 If you access the WOU homepage you'll see a link to the WOU Portal. 00:01:04.000 --> 00:01:09.000 By logging into the portal you know have access to all of the campus systems that we have integrated 00:01:09.000 --> 00:01:17.000 via the paw print username and password. We've been working to integrate everything into the WOU portal 00:01:17.000 --> 00:01:20.000 so you can access it from that one login. 00:01:20.000 --> 00:01:24.000 When you access the WOU Portal you will see a page that looks real similar to this. 00:01:24.000 --> 00:01:29.000 What I want you to notice is the new single sign on bar, there's a lot of icons for 00:01:29.000 --> 00:01:33.000 WolfWeb or the blogserver, moodle, things you're used to accessing, 00:01:33.000 --> 00:01:37.000 those things have been integrated with a single sign on for the WOU portal. 00:01:37.000 --> 00:01:45.000 Today I'm going to be talking about WOU alert which used to have a separate password and username to access it 00:01:45.000 --> 00:01:49.000 but now can be accessed via one click in the portal. 00:01:49.000 --> 00:01:56.000 You can see that by clicking on WOU alert I arrive at this screen which has my basic information 00:01:56.000 --> 00:01:59.000 and at the top a preferred language. 00:01:59.000 --> 00:01:65.000 If I chose to change that language to say' German, when I received a phone call or an email, 00:02:05.000 --> 00:02:09.000 the start of the message would be in that language that I chose, but the actual 00:02:09.000 --> 00:02:13.000 content of the emergency notification would continue to be in English. 00:02:13.000 --> 00:02:19.000 Down below you'll see the different contact paths from a mobile phone to a fax machine. 00:02:20.000 --> 00:02:27.000 what you should see is your email address already filled in with your WOU email address specified as priority one. 00:02:28.000 --> 00:02:34.000 What you'll want to do is add or change the contact paths that you'll want to use in this system, 00:02:34.000 --> 00:02:40.000 for instance, if I were to add a mobile phone, I could say, this is my priority number one. 00:02:40.000 --> 00:02:45.000 WOU does not use this system to notify for 00:02:45.000 --> 00:02:51.000 the weather or a parking lot closure and so you'll only receive emergency notifications, 00:02:51.000 --> 00:02:56.000 and so you can basically ignore the standard priority column although you're welcome to fill it in. 00:02:56.000 --> 00:02:64.000 Here you'll enter your mobile phone number, in this case 503-555-2121 and select your provider, 00:03:04.000 --> 00:03:12.000 lets say AT&T. Then because I have two number one emergency priorities I'll have to change this to 2, 00:03:12.000 --> 00:03:18.000 and I have all the contact paths that I want specified. 00:03:18.000 --> 00:03:22.000 To save my preferences, I only need to do two things. 00:03:22.000 --> 00:03:28.000 Once I can scroll down I can check accept after I have read and agreed to the disclaimer, and click save. 00:03:28.000 --> 00:03:36.000 The section above that you see for address can basically be ignored since WOU does not currently use this section. 00:03:36.000 --> 00:03:42.000 One real important thing for you to remember, after you've saved your preferences, 00:03:42.000 --> 00:03:48.000 close the WOU alert tag and make sure to log out of the WOU portal. 00:03:48.000 --> 00:03:54.000 It will make sure to log you out of each one of the systems that it configured during the single sign on process. 00:03:54.000 --> 00:03:60.000 Well there ya go it's that easy and its really important. Please take five minutes 00:04:00.000 --> 00:04:05.000 right now to log into the portal, access WOU alert and update your preferences. 00:04:05.000 --> 00:04:10.000 WOU takes your safety very seriously and we hope that you will as well. 00:04:10.000 --> 00:04:14.000 That's it for today, thanks for joining us on WOUtech TV
