How to get started using CAEDM

Step 1) Create an account

If you are eligible, create a CAEDM account. You may not use any college computing resources until you create a CAEDM account and agree to the policy.

Step 2) Computer labs

A CAEDM lab located in Crabtree room 450

After creating an account, you will receive the lab door code for the three CAEDM labs:

  • 308 Clyde Building
  • 425 Clyde Building
  • 450 Crabtree Building

Step 3) Using a CAEDM computer

Many of the programs you may need to complete coursework will not be in the start menu as would be expected. CAEDM uses thin client computers to access remote computing resources such as RGS and Citrix. You will need to become familiar with RGS and Citrix to access software. Printing on CAEDM computers uses special software unique to our system. Only one printer will appear in the printer selection. You will need to learn to use the CAEDM Print Driver.

We highly recommend you watch these two videos to get started.
