Our IT systems and services require several different user logins.
Which Login do I use for each online service? If your name is John Smith, login details would be:
|Computer User ID||jsmith||On-campus computers, myFiles and Brightspace by D2L|
|Federated IDfirstname.lastname@example.org||eduroam Wifi, Lynda.com, Ask IT Knowledge Base
