Cannot create Oasis pin to logon

Dear Lecturers

Is saw your posting regarding the papers required for the assignments. One suggestion was to access ACM via Oasis. My problem is that i can only find the logon and forgot password portion of Oasis to logon, and not the "Create pin" option.

Can you please advise how i can go about registering on Oasis, step by step. The help file on the site does not help either. I got to site https://oasis.unisa.ac.za to access the articles.

Many Thanks

Hey Niri.
The whole setup to create your first pin works a little bit funny spinning smiley sticking its tongue out. I also struggled the first time getting it right. Try the following, it worked for me!
1. I used this link [https://oasis.unisa.ac.za/patroninfo]
2. Type your surname in the first textbox (small caps)
3. Type in your student number
4. Afterwards, type the pin in that you want to use
5. Press the submit button. The system will recognise you as a new user. The following page displayed will give you the opportunity to create your pin.

Weird procedure, but ja, I go in!

Hi Ivan

Thank you so much for the reply. I did try that, and click submit and it wouldn't let me logon, it said "The information submitted was invalid". eventually i decided to click on the forgotten pin button and it reset my password. I never have used oasis before, but it looks like i was registered already. I received a link to reset my password, and then i had a TOUGH time trying to create the pin... smile It kept on saying my password was not secure enough... LOL eventually i had to use 4 number and 4 letters alternating...but now i'm in. yay!

I think i spent an hour trying to get this done yesterday, i'm still printing out some of the articles to to Q3, 6 and 7. I want to be complete with the assignment by tonight.

Which other subjects are you doing? This module is not so difficult but so time consuming to research and find the articles...

It's my first year in Hons (Computer Science) and took 5 modules: COS405, COS408, COS416, COS430, and COS462. I started late this year due to supplementary exams and registration hold-ups. But ja, I got eventually registered. So far Hons is very exciting and don't regret to carry on studying. Unfortunately for me, all my first assignments must go in on the dead line. Likely I'm on leave, so I can do some catch-up. But the year is still long... Glad to meet some study buddies smiling bouncing smiley. It can get quit frustrating if you feel you are the only one struggling

I'm also in a rush to complete the first assignments as well. It's great to have other students around...Please keep your material and tutorial letters for me...i might do a few of your subjects next year and the material would help a ton...

Good luck with the assignments...chat to you when the next one's are due.
