eMED access issues

Connectivity Issues with eMED

First verify that you have no network issues.  Can you go to

Login into eMED with your ‘full’ email account as your user id – ie.

Password is your ‘AD’ password (wifi) or whatever you set through reset password.

Browser Issues.

It is important to clear  your ‘cookies’ from your browsers memory.

In Firefox: go to ‘Tools’>Clear History> Check mark on cookies.

In Safari: go to ‘Safari’>Clear Cache

In Chrome: go to ‘Chrome’>Clear Browsing Data

In Explorer: go to Internet Options>Clear History (there is a pinwheel to select options)

After clearing, you might want to quit and restart.

If these steps don’t get you onto eMED. Please check if you can log in here. Click on the link to eMED. If that fails,   contact please put in the subject ‘Trouble logging into eMED” so that it can receive a high priority.

We will check to see if there is user authentication issue.

Be aware that system maintainence occurs nightly between 2am – 3am.


On August 15th students will begin using eMED.

Courses that existed on the myAlbert server will need their content transferred to eMED. Faculty will still have access to content on the current myAlbert course pages but that content will not be viewable by students. Consider the myAlbert course pages ‘archives’ as of now.

In the movement of content from myAlbert to eMED: Webpages become URL links. PPT/PDFs should be downloaded and reuploaded into eMED. That way any keyword / meta data gets input into the search index that is built into eMED.

CBE and the Teaching Office will assist in repopulation into eMED, but cannot chose without written instruction what files are to be transferred.

Faculty will be contacted by CBE for introduction and training in the new learning management software ‘eMED’.

Students will be given instruction during the first week of classes.

Initially 3rd and 4th year courses and students will be minimally impacted by this change.

There will be extensive documentation available through the ‘help’ links in eMED. Also the blog will offer documentation / help and guides as well. (note that the graphics do not correspond as of this date with the eMED installation).

eMED is web application developed at Tufts University.

June 2011

You’ll notice a few changes soon. But somethings that disappeared have more to do with ‘rollover’ procedures that happen during this month. Bear with us as we try to get things ready for the next academic cycle for the pre-clerkship years. Clerkships should be ok.

Project Management Tools

Came across this list.

basecamp :  monthly pricing scheme, but there is a free (slimmed down) version.

Glasscubes : has a free plan. : can’t seem to find a free plan, only a 14 day trial

codebase : tagline says ‘Git, Mercurial and Subversion Hosting with project management baked in…not suitable for our situation, but seems appealing with Git. : free to signup, free for one month as a trial, there after you’ll have access as a guest, unless you paid up.

Self Serv(er) : Redmine. CBE attempted to install this, and it presently is waiting in queue

Google Docs : Apparently some people manage their projects very well with googles suite of web apps.

PDF Forms

In some situations students and others will encounter PDF forms with ‘interactive’ features. These features are usually just form input fields.

Sometimes though you may fill out the form, but it won’t save your input!

There can be a few reasons.

One, the creator of the document has to enable that the forms user entered data can be saved. So in Adobe Acrobat (which is what you’ll need to create the PDF form fields),  if you are the creator, make sure you:


First time you should see this popup “Enable Usage Rights in Adobe Reader”.

The message will say (on our version)

The following features will become available for this document when opened in the free Adobe Reader.

- Save form data (for a fillable PDF form only)
- Commenting and drawing mark-up tools
- Sign an existing signature field
- Digitally sign the document anywhere on the page (not available for XML forms; only supported in Adobe Reader 8.0 or later)
Note: Once Reader Enabled, certain functions, such as editing document content or inserting and deleting pages, will be restricted.

Click (Save Now)

So if the document is created right, then you should be able to save whatever is input to the form fields. Test with ‘Adobe Reader’.

If you download a form enabled file, but can’t save:

Are you reading the document in the browser or the stand alone Adobe Reader?

We recommend the standalone, as the browser plugin might not be up to date. And at least here, we were not able to get it to save data we entered into the forms
