OIT's website

Drop-in Training

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
