Congratulations. If you're watching this video that means you've been offered a place at the University of Derby Online Learning but before you can delve into the world of your online studies we first must get you enrolled so let's take a look at what you need to do next. Check your inbox including your spam / junk as you will have received two emails to get you started with the enrollment process. The first of which will be your invitation to enroll and the second will be the instructions on how to set up your password and account which you will need to do first before you can access the application portal and complete your enrolment. The IT service center will have sent you an email subject named "It's time to set up your University of Derby's password" welcoming you to the password creation center and will feature instructions on the three stages to getting your password set up. Within the "It's time to set up your University of Derby's password" you will find a link to a guide which will take you through each step of the process or alternatively you can follow along with this video guide pausing at the relevant moments. It's worth opening two separate browser windows so that you can easily follow along with the information while working through the enrolment process. On both windows and macs you can split two browsers across one screen on windows you can do this by left clicking and holding the title bar of the window and drag it to the right or left edge of the screen. In the middle you will see a faint outline of a box which will take up half the screen release the left mouse button and on the opposite side of the screen you will see all the open windows displayed in the tiles click any tile to maximize that window into the other side of the screen. On a mac click and hold the full screen button in the upper left hand corner of a browser window choose "tile window to the left of screen" or "tile window to the right of screen" from the menu then click a window on the opposite side of the screen to start using both browsers side by side so let's create your password. At the bottom of the "it's time to set up your University of Derby password" email you'll find a start button. By selecting that you'll be directed to the password creation center with the first display simply explaining what you're about to do and featuring contact information if you need any further help throughout the process select start in the bottom right hand corner. The next page requires you to verify your date of birth once you've verified your date of birth click on the continue button. Next you will be asked to create a password. Passwords should be a minimum of 8 to 16 characters in length and require three out of four of the following, lower case letters, uppercase letters numbers 0 to 9, symbols. Type in your new password, confirm the password and hit the set password button and you will have successfully created your password but we're not finished just yet. Now we need to register for the password management system so select the next stage in the bottom right hand corner. During this stage you will add security information to your account this means that you'll never be locked out of your account as you'll be able to reset your password and unlock your account by using your phone or email. You'll first need to log in using your University email address which is shown at the top of the "It's time to set up your University of Derby password" email followed by the password which you have just created.
