Callista access from Macintosh computers

A workaround for accessing the new student management system, Callista, from Macintosh computers is now available.

ICT Services has developed a proposed solution for users around the University on Macintosh computers (both OS 9 and OS X) to enable them to access Callista. TSU received instructions on the set up (TSU is required to support the installation of the necessary software and set up the Macintosh computers that need it) on Tuesday 13 April 2004, but with the work program already scheduled for this break it is unlikely anything much can be done about testing it before the Callista go-live date of 27 April 2004.

Users requiring access to Callista from Macintosh computers should contact the cehelpdesk requesting that their computers be set up to access the system.

Instructions for installing Callista on Macintosh OS9 and Macintosh OS X are available from the Division's Public Documents site [available to comedu Divisional staff only: authentication required].
