Online Training Opportunities
OIT's Training & Development Group wants to make you aware of several self-service training options that may be useful, including:
Atomic Learning --
-- This site contains online software training video tutorials. These tutorials are highly focused in topic and range between 1 and 3 minutes in length.
-- This site contains online software training video tutorials. Lynda.com's videos are longer and provide greater in-depth information.
-- Skillsoft is a training portal provided for UA employees. It includes online professional development courses and additional resources, such as Books 24x7 and Knowledge Centers. Books 24x7 provides access to technical and professional books (making them available for online viewing) and Knowledge Centers provide topics focused on business, professional development and leadership.
OIT's website --
-- The OIT website contains up-to-the-minute information about outages, services and events, along with self-service technical support options.
Remember that you can drop by our office in 319B Bunnell if you need some one-on-one help or have a question; we also are willing to train a group from your office as well. And of course there are our usual Friday drop-in hours of 1-2 p.m. for Google Apps-iTunesU-Podcasting help, Blackboard (the current version or the scheduled new version) from 2-4 p.m. in 319B Bunnell and TOAD-Roxen from 2-4 p.m. in Butrovich 104.
At the very least if you're not sure what the best approach is or exactly what your training needs are, call the Support Center (x8300) and they can initiate a help desk request ticket.
As always, you can give us a call or send us an email
