Print Anywhere allows students to print to MU network-connected printers from their personal laptops. Start your print job and pick it up at the designated printer on your way to class. Keep track of your printing allowance with Print Smart.
Undergraduate students are issued a $17.50 print allowance each semester, which is about 350 pages (black only). Additional prints are charged to your student account. You can check your balance and see how many pages you have printed online, using Print Smart.
Box Cloud Storage
Keep your files secure using Box Cloud Storage! As an MU student, you are entitled to a free, 50-gigabyte Box account. By using Box, collaborating for team projects is easy! You and your classmates can share and edit documents, take notes, and more. All Box services and apps are accessible through a web browser, using a computer or mobile device. Box also integrates with Microsoft Office and Outlook.
Clickers in the Classroom
Some courses require the use of student response systems, called “clickers”, to allow students to give live feedback, answer questions, and assess their own understanding of the material being covered in class. Clickers are also frequently used with PowerPoint presentations to display real-time reactions such as voting results, engagement in course topics, opinions, and quick quizzes.
