A user begins with a screen that requests an
identification code. This code is assigned when the user is
registered (by an instructor for students, by MASTER for instructors)
and is unique to the user.
When a valid student identification code is entered, pressing the Tab key moves to the password entry field. The password is not shown on the screen while it is being entered. In the screen below, the identification code AT96003 has been entered and the password PWORD is being typed in. When all fields are complete, the user should click on the Login button or simply press the Enter key.
The server name should be preset for you. Normally you will not have to change this, in some cases it will be greyed out or not shown depending on how the system was set up when installed.
Typing errors can be corrected with the backspace key.
The process of signing in is the same for all users, and requires that the user know both the identification code and the secret password.
