1. I'm a new instructor, what are my usernames and passwords for email and online courses?

Computer Login:
The default login information for a new account for workstation access is the first initial of the employee’s first name, and their last name, so in the case of Mary Smith the login would be: msmith
The initial password is: Yc!DOB (in the format of ddmmyy)
You will be asked to change your password the first time you log onto a workstation. (*please review Password Criteria below)

Office 365 & MyCourses:
The username for Office 365 & MyCourses is the same as above with @yukoncollege.yk.ca added. ie: msmith becomes: msmith@yukoncollege.yk.ca
If you have logged into a workstation and have changed your password then that will be your password for Office 365 and for MyCourses
If you haven’t yet changed your password you can use the default.
The default password information for a new account for E-mail, workstation access, Office 365 and Moodle will be Yc!DOB (in the format of ddmmyy).

Banner & FAST:
The username for BANNER and FAST is the first initial of the employee’s first name, and their last name, so in the case of Mary Smith the login would be: msmith
The default password information for Banner/Fast is Capital letter of the employee’s first name, their employee ID and a small letter of their last name, so in the case of Mary Smith with Employee ID of 000012345, her password would be M000012345s.
To access Banner Fast go to www.yukoncollege.yk.ca/fast
PLEASE NOTE that in case of FAST/BANNER access, a person with a NEW ACCOUNT MUST LOGIN to BANNER at the college and change their default password BEFORE attempting to access Banner or FAST on /off-site.

How do I get my archived folders back?

Please refer to this page.

I am an instructor and I'm having problems with Moodle. How can I get help?

Please refer to the Moodle section in this knowledgebase.

I'm having problems accessing library databases remotely. What do I do?

Check the answers below and see which one applies to you.

1) You are not able to login to the remote resources page

Most common reasons:

a)  Problems with your Library account

Remote access to library databases is only allowed to current Library patrons whose status is "good". In other words, if you don't have a library account, if your account hasn't been updated for the current term, or if you have outstanding fines blocking your account, you will not be able to login to a database remotely. To either of these cases, contact the Library directly at (867) 668-8870 or through the e-mail library@yukoncollege.yk.ca

b) Your account number is incorrect

Make sure you enter your full student number. E.g. 000012345. All zeroes must be included!

c) Your password is incorrect

Your password for remote database access is not necessarily the same that you use for computer or e-mail access. Your password for Library resources shouldn't be longer than 7 digits. If unsure about what your password is or if you need to reset it, contact the Library at (867) 668-8870 or through the e-mail library@yukoncollege.yk.ca

2) You are able to login to the remote resources page, but you see an error after clicking on a database name

Most common reasons:

a) This may be a temporary problem with the database provider. Wait for a few minutes and try again. Try also clearing your browser history and cache.

b) Some browsers work better than others for database search. We recommend using Firefox or Chrome.

c) There might be an authentication issue between the database provider and the Library. If none of the suggestions above works for you, take a screenshot of the error page and send it to library@yukoncollege.yk.ca, or fill in an IT Help ticket. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
