General Assistance & FAQ

How Do I Repair My Device?

As BYOD devices are purchased external to the college they come with a warranty and manufacturer guarantee bound to them. If you encounter a fault with your device we recommend getting in touch directly with the manufacturer for the fastest response, rather than talking to the place you bought it from as this can delay the repair.

For Apple devices we always recommend talking with Apple first and allow them to diagnose the fault remotely if possible. If they are unable to do this they can then direct you to their approved and authorised repair agent. If you take it back to the place you bought it from such as JB HiFi or Harvey Norman we have observed that the wait time is extended by several weeks. For a fast and quick repair click here to start the process with Apple.

While the device is away the college can prepare a loan device to ensure schoolwork and homework are not interrupted. These devices are for 2 weeks but can be extended if the repair is taking some time to complete - simply drop into the ICT helpdesk with the loan unit and we can perform a quick check and then extend the loan. 

Requesting Access To Blocked Websites

We are able to unblock websites that show a message advising the website is blocked. All requests need to be sent from a member of staff to ictservices@tatachilla.sa.edu.au with the website URL being access, the year levels JS, MS or SS that it to be unblocked for and a timeframe. Most websites are simple to do, however there may be some with different content that may cause it to be blocked by several rules and may need some additional work.

Using Social Media, iMessage, And Similar Services

These platforms are not available on the college network

Phishing Emails

Phishing emails are emails designed to capture your information by appearing real, when in fact they are not. There are thousands of different types but generally they ask you to do something like click a link, open an attachment, update your details or act urgently due to something happening. Here are some good rules of thumb to follow:

Too Good To Be True - Lucrative offers and eye-catching or attention-grabbing statements are designed to attract people’s attention immediately. For instance, many claim that you have won an iPhone, a lottery, or some other lavish prize. Just don't click on any suspicious emails. Remember that if it seems to good to be true, it probably is!
Sense of Urgency - A favorite tactic amongst cybercriminals is to ask you to act fast because the super deals are only for a limited time. Some of them will even tell you that you have only a few minutes to respond. When you come across these kinds of emails, it's best to just ignore them. Sometimes, they will tell you that your account will be suspended unless you update your personal details immediately. Most reliable organizations give ample time before they terminate an account and they never ask patrons to update personal details over the Internet. When in doubt, visit the source directly rather than clicking a link in an email.
Hyperlinks - A link may not be all it appears to be. Hovering over a link shows you the actual URL where you will be directed upon clicking on it. It could be completely different or it could be a popular website with a misspelling, for instance www.bankofarnerica.com - the 'm' is actually an 'r' and an 'n', so look carefully.
Attachments - If you see an attachment in an email you weren't expecting or that doesn't make sense, don't open it! They often contain payloads like ransomware or other viruses. The only file type that is always safe to click on is a .txt file.
Unusual Sender - Whether it looks like it's from someone you don't know or someone you do know, if anything seems out of the ordinary, unexpected, out of character or just suspicious in general don't click on it!

How Do I Check The Warranty On My Apple Device?

You can check the status of your Apple warranty and/or Apple Care using this tool provided by Apple: Warranty Checker

For further support we recommend reaching out to Apple through the Apple Support system which you can find here

How Often Should I Restart My Device?

It is recommended to restart your device regularly. Sleep technology and power saving on laptops has come a long way in the past few years. However a restart of your laptop cleans the slate, clears out any potential problems and ensures that your device is ready to go anytime. A significant number of issues can be prevented by a simple restart each day.

A good practise that users can employ is that at the end of the day, save your work and shut your device down. When you start again in the morning turn it back on and it will be in the best state for you to begin your day.

iPads don't need a restart as often as laptops do, however a restart can resolve any issues you may with apps crashing or the device slowing down. See here on how to restart.

Google Drive

How Do I Organise My Files?

When saving your files, simple is always better. We recommend separating each year into its own folder such as 2019, 2020 etc and then each subject in that year into its own folder like Maths, English or Drama. Each document you make should also be named according to the assignment, such as 12English_Shrek_criticalreview.docx

This will help you not only navigate to where you need quickly and without guessing but will also mean if you need to search for a 12 English document it will appear easily.

How Do I Share My Files?

To share a file or folder from My Drive:

  • In Google Chrome, go to Google Drive
  • Right Click the file/folder you want to share.
  • Click Share
  • Under "People," enter the email address you want to share with.
  • To choose what someone can do with your file, click the Down arrow.
  • If you don’t want to send an email to people, click Advanced and uncheck the Notify people box. If you notify people, each email address you enter will be included in the email for others to see.
  • Click Send

Please note that Shared Drives are not able to be shared this way - this will only work for My Drive sharing. ICT Services administers the sharing on the Shared Drives. 

How Do I Find A File Someone Shared With Me?

  • Open and login to Google drive through SEQTA
  • On the left hand menu click 'Shared With Me'
  • You will get a list of all documents you have been given rights to

If you want to quickly find this again and is something you need regularly you can star the item as important.

iPads

An Explanation About iPad Restrictions

  • All iPads that are to be used at the College are required to go through a setup process whereby they are erased and prepared with a customised Tatachilla environment with security and settings all preconfigured.
  • ICT Services are unable to complete this process if there is an AppleID already signed in to the iPad. Therefor, any signed in AppleID's will require removal from the iPad before ICT Services can perform the setup process.
  • Please note, when iPad's are processed for use at the College, all existing data on the iPad (games, apps, settings, photos and videos etc.) will be removed.
  • It is recommended that any important data on the iPad's be backed up first, before the iPad is brought in to ICT Services for setting up.
  • This setup process enables ICT Services to deploy apps and settings as required by Teachers quickly and easily.
  • The setup process also enforces settings for a students age level which prevents the installation of games/apps that are rated above their year group.
  • Please note, that the setup process still allows parents and families to use their personal AppleID's to make purchases from both iTunes and the App Store.
    However, keep in mind that age restrictions still apply, based on the College security settings mentioned above.

All of your App Limits, Downtime, and Content Restrictions are protected via a passcode that must be entered to grant more usage time to children when limits have been reached. This also prevents children from changing their own Screen Time settings.

If I have left the college, how do I remove Tatachilla software from my iPad?

On enrolment at the college the devices are preloaded with all the software the students need, it also places a message under the settings area of the device advising the device is managed by Tatachilla Lutheran College. This ensures that every device we enrol is in the exactly the state and has the same settings. The ICT Team can remove the enrolment from the device, meaning all the college apps are removed and the college won't be able to control or see the device is any way. The message however advising that the device is managed will remain until the device is factory reset. Apple have instructions on how you can reset the device here

Airdrop isn't appearing, where did my files go?

When students share from their iPads to the teachers iPad it will show an alert inside Apple Classroom, this is different from the normal method.
