Resources for Getting Started

These are resources related to familiarizing yourself with the iPad as a new user. Many of these come directly from Apple.

Setting up Dartmouth Stuff

Setting up your Dartmouth Email on your iPad

Visit this Dartmouth ITS site to learn about setting up your email on your iPad or other iOS device.

Setting up the Microsoft Office apps on the iPad

Please find the Microsoft Office iOS App Downloads below:

Download the above listed apps from the app store. Each of these usually require an Office 365 subscription, however as Dartmouth users, this is included for dartmouth users. To activate it, use the following procedure:

  1. Open one of the Microsoft Office apps.
  2. Click Sign in. Then enter your Dartmouth email address using your NetID (e.g. d12345x@kiewit.dartmouth.edu) and then click Next.
  3. This should then redirect you to the Dartmouth NetID login. Enter your NetID as the user name and your Dartmouth password for the password field. Then click Sign in.

At this point, the app is ready to be used. We also recommend setting up OneDrive for Business so you can access your files across your devices. To do that, do the following:

  1. Click Open on the left side.
  2. Click Add a Place then select OneDrive for Business.
  3. Then enter your Dartmouth email address using your NetID (d12345x@kiewit.dartmouth.edu) and then click Next.
  4. This should then redirect you to the Dartmouth NetID login. Enter your NetID as the user name and your Dartmouth password for the password field. Then click Sign in.

You should now see your OneDrive files listed as a place. This will allow you to access your files across all of your devices using OneDrive.
