Student Support Resources: Computers & Internet

TCC Assistance

undefinedIf you are enrolled in TCC classes and do not have a device or do not have internet, please fill out the device request form. Devices are loaned on a first-come, first-serve basis while you are attending classes. 

TCC provides students with a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) which allows access to the software you will need for your classes. Software on the VDI includes Microsoft Office, Visio, Adobe Reader, and more.  To access the VIDI, visit http://cloud.tccd.edu/ and log in with your myTCC email and password. Go to the VDI help page for more information and troubleshooting advice. 

If you run into any technical problems during your online classes, you can contact the TCC Library on our Tech Chat service. You can chat with our computer experts. They know a lot about the computer programs and settings needed for your TCC classes and can answer most of your questions in real-time.

First Time in Online Classes

If this is your first time in college or first time taking online classes, it is worth it to invest a few minutes to set yourself up for success. Please see the information resources below.

Free Microsoft Office 365

Microsoft Office 365 is available at no cost for TCC students, faculty, and staff. To set up your account, click on this link: Get Office 365. Make sure you use your TCCD email address to set up your access. 

Not Comfortable with Computers?

Knowing how to use a computer is a skill that needs to be developed just like any other skill. Online classes may require you to do tasks and use resources you may not have previously encountered. Your TCC librarians are available to answer questions about classwork on the Ask a Librarian service. If you are having computer problems, check in with our tech experts on the Tech Chat service. The links below will take you to free computer help resources.
