Technology Tips

CedarNet

CedarNet, the Cedarville Network, is a general term used to encompass the wired and wireless campus network, University-licensed software, and Cedarville University’s online presence.

CedarNet is a single sign-on environment, which means you only need one username and password to access all of Cedarville’s online resources. This includes access to material from Cedarville’s partners such as Google (for University email), CU Learn (Canvas) (for online courses), and Hoonuit (for on-demand, online instructional tutorials).

University Email

University email is provided through Google Apps for Education. Information technology recommends using the Google Chrome web browser to access your University email. Access your CU Google Mail at cedarville.edu/google. Then enter your CedarNet username and password where prompted for easy access to your email. College Now students will be given access to email following course registration.

  • Your University email address is composed of your CedarNet username plus the extension @cedarville.edu.
  • You can modify your username toward the end of each semester, and you can change your CedarNet password at any time using a CedarInfo transaction.

CedarInfo

CedarInfo is the protected portion of the University website that houses your personal information (e.g., course schedule, transcript, financial aid, student statement, etc.). Access CedarInfo in the QuickLinks section on the student homepage, or by typing cedarville.edu/cedarinfo in a web browser. Log in using your CedarNet username and password.

Hoonuit

Hoonuit (pronounced Who Knew It) offers online, on-demand video tutorials. Whether you are fairly new to technology, or want to become familiar with new software, Hoonuit will open the door to over 50,000 short (two–five minute) technology training videos that are available for viewing 24/7. Access Hoonuit at cedarville.edu/hoonuit.

Google Hangouts

Google Hangouts is Google's video, audio, and chat application hosted within Google+ and your CU Google Mail account. Using your computer or mobile device's webcam, microphone, and high-speed Internet, you can meet online with fellow students and collaborate for group projects. In addition, Google Hangouts allows you to share and view documents with your online classmates. For more information or to use Google Hangouts, review the instructions for using Google Hangouts.
