Follow along as Mike Dumdei guides you through logging into and using TC Email.
This session covers using your Texarkana College email.
It is important for you to use your Texarkana College email once you become a student.
All of your instructors, the Admissions Office Enrollment Management, Financial Aid, they will all communicate with you via your Texarkana College email account.
You won’t be getting emails sent to the email you put on your ApplyTexas. No third party emails.
All the official communications will come to your Texarkana College Email, so it’s important for you to check it regularly and we’re going to go over first, how to get to your TC email?
There’s a couple of ways you can do it.
One from the student portal, there is an email link right here that you can click and we’re going to use that method here today.
If you’re already logged in, you’ll still have that link.
So and if you’re in an online class, a lot of those online classes have an email link.
If you’re in teams, I believe it has an email link so, but here’s one that we can get to today.
So I’m going to click this. And when I click email it asks me to sign in and so when I go to sign in, I’m going to type in the name of my test student. This will be your TC login followed by texarkanacollege.edu. And I’m going to hit next.
And then it’s gonna ask me for the password.
So I typed in my student password. And I’m gonna say no, I don’t want to stay signed in.
And at that point I go straight into TC email.
And this is just standard email application here where you can read your emails, respond to emails.
It also includes as part of it, it also includes a calendar over here where you can click and check calendar events.
A lot of times your instructor will have teams meetings set up on your calendar that you can look at here.
There is, if you’re familiar with the Google Apps, this is kind of the same thing as Google Docs.
You can go to an online version of Microsoft Word.
You can go to an online version of Microsoft PowerPoint, so there’s different things that you can do.
Here I’m going to go back to Email. So, this is what we call the waffle.
The waffle will take you to all the different various apps that are available in the Office 365 series.
So, I’m going to click on Outlook again and it will take me back to the Outlook screen.
Something else to point out here while I am on the Outlook screen and that is I can also set up this to connect up to my phone, so if you just let this sit here for just a little bit, you can also just go to your phone and go to the App Store or whatever your application download tool is but it allows you to install Outlook on your phone.
So if I was to type in a mobile number here it would give me a link and I could click it and I could install Outlook email on my phone using the online Outlook application which is really a good thing to do because that way you have your email right on your cell phone.
So, I don’t think there’s much more we need to cover here.
