TechExpress

ITS has launched TechExpress which is a one-stop portal for several Tech systems you interact with daily. As we move to remote learning, it will become an essential tool for supporting your learning. 

More information about TechExpress is available here. 

Virtual Group Collaboration - Microsoft Teams & Zoom

Virtual group collaboration will likely be a necessity for some classes. ITS & the CITL have addressed this by making Microsoft Teams and Zoom available to faculty, staff, & students.

Microsoft Teams

All staff have access to Microsoft Teams. This is a very powerful tool for group collaboration both with video, audio, file-sharing, & group document collaboration. Meeting lengths are not limited as they are with Zoom (see below) - max meeting size of 250 people.

Zoom

All staff have access to a free Zoom account. This is a great tool for 1-to-1 meetings of unlimited length or large group meetings for a limited 40 minutes.  Staff can request a Zoom Pro account - priority is currently given to faculty who are teaching, which provides unlimited meetings for up to 300 people.

More information about Zoom and how to get started can be found here on the CITL's Zoom page.

Online Supplemental Learning - LinkedIn Learning

All staff have access to LinkedIn Learning. This can be used to expand your personal knowledge and learn tips to work smarter not harder.

More information on LinkedIn Learning is available here.
