A new NPal2 student self-service on mobile

NPal2 mStudent will be released in January 2016. Many thanks to the students who have given their feedback on the preferred features on mobile.

NPal2 mStudent is an extension of NPal2 Student Self-Service on the Android and iOS mobile platform.

The initial release of NPal2 mStudent will enable you to view your daily and semestral class timetables and the individualised exam timetable.

You will also be able to download your daily timetable to your phone's local calendar.

NPal2 mStudent can be downloaded from Apple AppStore or Android Play Store. For iOS users, only iPhone 5 or newer devices are supported.

More features will be rolled out over the next few months. Watch out for our next release in Feb which will include exam results and common test timetables.

Keeping Yourself Safe Online

The internet is a treasure trove filled with personal data and information which can be used for malicious intent. Take these simple precautions to stay save while on the Internet:

1. Be aware of the personal info on your social media profile.
It is best not to fill in every single private detail of yourself on social media sites. Simple info such as your birthdate or email can be used for fraudulent activities.

2. Remove/Block unwanted game or app requests
More often than not, the apps or games that we download could access our location, network, and storage through our devices. We can protect our data by removing those apps.

3. Keep online activities to the minimum when on public Wifi.
Hackers could easily obtain your data on public network. Avoid making online purchases or logging into your personal account when using the public Wifi.

Spring Clean Your Tech Gadgets

What's better than to spring clean your gadgets for the new year! Here are some cleaning you can do without much effort:

1. Clear up your storage space.
Photos, videos, and documents could take up a lot of space. You could move those data to external or cloud storage to free up some internal storage, and as a good backup practice.

2. Update your antivirus software.
Bloatwares, malwares, viruses are scary stuff you won’t want to have in your gadgets. Update your antivirus software and run a scan on your gadgets to remove bad files/programs.

3. Actually cleaning your computer/gadgets.
Dirty devices are unappealing. Lightly dampen microfiber cloth to wipe off smudges, dirt, or stains on your gadgets. Another tip: You can use disinfectant, or even baby wipes to clean your devices. Just remember to wipe off with a dry microfiber cloth after using the wipes to avoid wet stains.
