Attention Extension NETg Users!
by Jill Dourty

Due to budget restraints, the University did not renew their contract with NETg. The expiration of the contract was October 17, 2003 at midnight.

In accordance with our contract agreement, however, we must immediately cease using, de-install and destroy all copies and partial copies of NETg training products in our possession. If you need assistance with this, please contact or call 573/882-2096.

If you haven't done so already, please comply with the terms of the signed agreement and be sure all NETg products are removed from your machine. Thank you for your cooperation.

In an effort to minimize the loss of NETg's training materials on our users, the University has turned to Microsoft. Microsoft offers training on their products and now the University has access to their training library. The MELL system (Microsoft eLearning Library) is not intended to replace NETg but rather to offer other resources for assistance with Microsoft only products.

The MELL system is limited to a set of IP addresses determined by our individual University entities to allow access to eligible machines only. University employees will use their email handles (your name before the @ in your email address) and their email password to log in to MELL. MELL will not be available to any users from IP addresses other than the work/office computers. This is done with the intention of not violating the agreement the University has with Microsoft.

To access this new system, please follow the directions below:

Go to (opens new browser window) Pick a topic area Enter email handle (your name before the @ in your email address) and email password Click Yes on Security Information dialog box Follow directions on screen Search for a topic in the upper right corner OR Click on the pencil beside course title on the left to expand the drop down subtitles

For more information on this product, please visit the site and have a look around. For questions and problems, please contact ETCS at 573/882-2096 or by email at
