URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator, and is used to specify addresses on the World Wide Web. A URL is the work identification for any resource connected to the web.
URLs have the following format:
The protocol used for web resources is HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP). The protocol is followed by a colon, two slashes, and then the domain name. Directory names are separated by single forward slashes.
User Principal Name (UPN)
Userprincipalname (UPN) is username + @uwstout.edu. This is different from email address. Both faculty/staff and students have a UPN of email@example.com.
A UW-Stout username, everything to the left of the @ symbol in an email address, is used to log into most campus resources like Access Stout and Canvas. Examples are "smithj" or "smithj1234".
