    3. Cautions/Usage Rules

    UTokyo WiFi is to be shared and used by all people on campus! Please follow the rules and manners.
    The following are the main points to note when using the UTokyo WiFi.

    ・Before and after the start of a class, everyone is accessing the online class at the same time, so the WiFi connection is likely to be unstable.
    ・Do not use the network for other purposes during class except for attending classes.
    ・If you are having trouble with the connection, you may be able to solve the problem by re-entering Zoom, rebooting your device, or moving to a different classroom.
    ・Other WiFi routers and tethering devices are not allowed in the classroom for online classes.

    In addition to the above, there are other things you need to be aware of when using the system, so please read Terms of Use.

    The information security training is conducted each year since 2017(e-learning) for everyone using the University's information systems.

    5. ECCS terminals and ECCS training sessions

    You can use the computers installed on campus to take online classes.
    You must pass "New User Training" to use those computers.
    The procedure is as follows

    a. Log in to ITC-LMS.
    b. Select "ECCS New User Training" in the "Training" section at the bottom, watch the video, and then take the test.
