Qualtrics is Lafayette's web-based survey tool that is available to the entire campus community. Qualtrics offers extensive online training matierials as well as weekly live trainings.
Managed Software Center is for installation on college-owned computers only. College employees should download and install MSC only if directed to do so by ITS staff. If you prefer to have someone from User Services assist in the installation, please contact the Help Desk.
To begin, download the installer for Managed Software Center, which will require your Lafayette credentials. After downloading, run the installer.
A group is a set of Qualtrics users with access to a shared library of surveys, panels, and other survey data. If you would like to have a group created for your organization send your request to the Help Desk at email@example.com with a list of users that should be in the group.
Groups are good for sharing your surveys and other data with a large number of people. Rather than collaborating with individual user accounts, you can collaborate with a group to give everyone in that group access to your survey, message libraries, and panels.
Below are instructions for using a few specialized and helpful functions available in Qualtrics.
Qualtrics can require survey participants to log in/authenticate using their Lafayette credentials before they can take your survey.

When using a Mac to create a PowerPoint presentation that will be displayed on a PC (e.g., in a smart classroom), images should be inserted as files using PowerPoint menu choices. Copying and pasting or dragging and dropping an image will cause problems when displaying the presentation on a PC. Dragging and dropping an image uses QuickTime compression, which is not supported on the Windows version of PowerPoint.
The application 7-Zip has been installed on all ITS-provided computers to augment Windows XP's built-in support for compressed files.
