Students who are new to the Tumaini University Makumira Dar Es Salaam
College, will be aware that there is much emphasis on the use of
Technology. Most courses require students to use a computer at some
point in their studies. Students arrive at TUMADARCo with various levels
of experience in the use of computers. This page is aimed at those
students who have never used a computer before and who require a little
help to get them started.
Using a computer for the first time can be very daunting. It is a good idea to get to know the main components of a computer before you start. Once you discover which part does what, the rest will follow easily.
There are two main types of computers used at TUMADARCo. The more traditional
PC with big screen, and the more compact flat screen PC. These are composed
mouse and monitor, current we have Desktop and Tower replacing the tower.
Before you can use the computers at TUMADARCo you must register for a computer
account. Your department may advise you how to do this or you can visit one
of the Help Desks if you need assistance. You will be issued with a username
and password, with which, you can access the facilities on the network.
Once you have registered, you will receive a username and a password. Your
username will be composed of your initials and a number. for example if your
name is Charles Ezekiel Urio your user name will be ceu124. This will be your
user name for the rest of the time you will be at the College.
Once you have a computer account, you can access the service. To do this, you must login to a computer in any Open Access User Area or Computer Lab.
