The College offers secure solutions for enabling you to work remotely. Cloud services,
College laptops connected through VPN, and the remote work portal give you accessible
and secure ways to work remotely.
Many of the College's systems are available from anywhere you have an internet connection.
Often you can complete much or all of your work from a personal laptop or computer.
When contacting the Help Desk for a remote work solution, know what you work with
on a day-to-day basis. Some may require additional planning or specialized solutions
to access critical work systems.
Working remotely can present challenges to effective communications and personally
connecting with our students and colleagues. Ensure you make the effort to maintain
communications with your colleagues and connect with students. Many of the College's
technology solutions can be leveraged to maintain these connections.
Working remotely introduces additional security concerns. You are responsible for
the security of your personal device and internet connection. For more information
on securing yourself at home, see our guidelines for being secure at home.
You can accomplish most tasks in Banner as you would from your work computer through
the remote work portal. The one exception is BDM. If you need to process images through
BDM, then you will need to use a virtual desktop.
Simply log in to work.stlcc.edu and select "Banner 9."
For all other specialized applications or work resources such as P: and O: drives,
use a virtual desktop - it's a full-blown virtual computer that runs in your web browser.
Select "Virtual Desktops."
Log in using your email address.
Select "STLCC Remote..." to start your virtual desktop.
Click "Allow" when prompted to allow work.stlcc.edu to see text and images copied
to the clipboard. This will allow you to use copy and paste between your system and
the virtual computer.
That's it! A virtual computer will start and logon in your web browser. Now you can
do almost anything that you could from a work computer. What now? Check out our tips
on copy/paste and multi-monitor support.
You can change how copy and paste works on your virtual desktop. Copy and paste operates
in 2 modes. In the first, copy and paste only work on the virtual desktop. In the
second mode, copy and paste will work between your computer or laptop, and the virtual
desktop. To toggle between these settings to get the desired mode, just use the copy/paste
switch button located in the menu.
Open up the menu by clicking or tapping on the menu tab on the left.
If copy and paste are not behaving properly with your virtual desktop, or just not
working at all, you may have missed or clicked past the prompt to permit work.stlcc.edu
to access the clipboard. To fix this, you will need to give work.stlcc.edu permission
to access the clipboard in your web browser.
Choose the "3 dots" menu button in the upper right-hand corner and select "Settings."
Select "Privacy and Security" on the left.
Select "Site Settings"
Select "Additional Permissions" and then "Clipboard"
Under "Allowed to see your clipboard" select "Add" on the right.
