Student-made videotapes will be shown on the AppalNet. Students can also broadcast live programs from Wey Hall and advertise school events and activities. However, one question is still pending: can students rent videotaped movies through the AppalNet? Although this would probably be illegal, the cost of a subscription to AppalNet is approximately $70 per year per student.

Authorized users on Student Appalnet are those who have been designat by a student to make online payments and view a student statement. The student can designate multiple people to be authoriz users on their account. These individuals will receive email instructions and a password, and they can then log into their Student Appalnet account.
Authorized users can only access the Billing and Payment Center if they are students enroll at Appalachian State University. These users will need to enter a unique password, which differs from the Appalnet Parent Portal PIN. The password should be enter in Google Chrome Incognito mode. After you login to the Bill and Payment Center, you can view and pay bills, set up authorized users, and provide bank information for direct deposit of refunds.
Authorized users can only access the Student Appalnet account if the student has authorized them. However, they can authorize others to access their account on the student’s behalf. To do this, students must first authorize the users in Touchnet. After setting up the user, the student should provide the user’s email address. The authorized user will be able to view the student’s account and make payments on their behalf. The authorized user will be provided a login username and password that they will need to enter in Touchnet.
Showing student-made videotapes on AppalNet
If you are a student, you may have seen student-made videotapes broadcast on AppalNet. These programs are broadcast at the request of faculty and students. You can request a broadcast in advance, and the Belk Library will broadcast the videotapes on certain days and times, maybe three or four times. You may even give your students the assignment of watching the videotapes as homework.
Appal Net is a broadcast service provided by the university. Last Wednesday, students from Watauga College viewed a program on the university’s broadcast service. About two-thirds of the group watched the program in their residence halls; the remainder watched the program in the classroom.
