Logging Into Student Workrooms from Outside UC

  1. Access the Remote Access screen:
    1. Open a browser and go to https://gostudent.canterbury.ac.nz/
    2. Login using your student code (eg, abc123@uclive.ac.nz) and usual password
      or if you are a staff member login using your lastname@canterbury.ac.nz and usual password
      – The first time you login you will need to set up Multi-factor authentication, so work through the dialogue boxes for this. We suggest using Text message.
  2. The Remote Access screen displays, showing available workrooms. You will only see the ones that you have access to. If you do not see any then contact your supervisor or lecturer.

  3. Click the workroom you wish to access

  4. Work through the verification process to safely access the Workroom (Mac users require Microsoft Remote Desktop available free from the Mac App Store https://apps.apple.com/nz/app/microsoft-remote-desktop-10/id1295203466?mt=12)
    – after you click the workroom you wish to access, a download notification or dialogue box opens at the bottom of your screen or elsewhere on your screen (depending on your browser):

    1. Click “Open”
      – after you click Open, a Remote Desktop Connection dialogue box displays
    2. Click “Connect” on the Remote Desktop Connection dialogue box
      – A Windows Security dialogue box displays, click Yes to accept the certificate
    3. Enter your usual password
      – if you also need to enter your user code, use the format UOCNT\usercode
      (eg, UOCNT\abc123)

  5. The workroom desktop opens and you are now connected to a workroom computer

Academic Integrity is important in being a successful student

As you are now completing your assessment items online, we wanted to give you a timely reminder of the importance of academic integrity and being honest in your studies and assessments.  Academic integrity is a principle at UC whereby both staff and students agree to act honesty, fairly, ethically and with respect for each other in teaching and learning.  You can learn more by reading UC’s Academic Integrity Guidance for Staff and Students.

For some students, there may be increased temptation to cheat and engage in dishonest academic practices such as:

  • Plagiarism/Self-plagiarism – using someone’s ideas and information without acknowledging them as the source or self-plagiarism where someone attempts to submit their own writing to two different assessments to gain credit twice;
  • Collusion – copying the work of someone else or allowing someone else to copy your work without disclosing this with the intent to deceive;
  • Impersonating/Ghost writing – having another person or commercial organisation impersonate you and complete an assessment item on your behalf; and/or
  • Fabrication – ‘inventing’ data for example in a lab report or from a publication.

Cheating and academic dishonesty will not be tolerated at UC.  We are committed to upholding the principles of academic integrity, especially in an online teaching environment, and UC has ways to identify dishonest practices such as the use of Turnitin.

If you are suspected of engaging in a dishonest academic practice this will be thoroughly investigated by either a Head of School/Department or a University Proctor and could ultimately result in disciplinary action being taken against you such as receiving a fine or being suspended/expelled from your studies.
