Technology Training Program
The Information Technology Division is committed to providing high-quality training and documentation on the software and services we provide to members of the Lewis & Clark Community. There are a number of options available to you here. Hopefully one of these will fit your needs.
IT provides support at a variety of levels, on a designated list of software. Don’t know what software IT supports? It might be useful to check out IT’s Supported Software List.
- Computer Training Workshops: Covering a wide-range of topics, these one to two-hour sessions are offered at various times throughout the semester. Have a look at the schedule and look over the course descriptions. Once you’ve digested all the information, let us know what course(s) you’re interested in by sending electronic mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the online registration form.
- Read Your Manual: When you purchase software for your computer, you may receive a set of manuals, either in print or electronic form. Most software manufacturers will provide a “Getting Started” section for new users. Sometimes you’ll also receive a tutorial with your software. FileMaker Pro and Photoshop both come with good tutorials. Check both of these options out!
- Lynda.com: We are now offering online training available through lynda.com. Lynda.com offers over nine hundred online workshops. These video-based online tutorials cover both basic and more in-depth topics. For a complete listing, visit lynda.com. We have five licenses that will will check out for a week at a time. To check out a license, send an email to email@example.com and let us know when we should reserve a license for you.
- CBT Tutorials & Classroom in a Book: In IT, we know that sometimes the training we offer doesn’t come when you need it most. So, we’ve assembled a small library of Computer Based Training tutorials and workbooks for you to check out for up to a week at a time. Have a look at the list, then drop by the IT main desk and have a look at the library!
- Helpsheets: The Helpsheet area is where you’ll find online documents written by the staff of the Information Technology Division. Where appropriate, you’ll also find pointers to outside sources of documentation. These documents and pointers are specific to the Lewis & Clark community. You’ll find help on the software IT supports, on using the public computing labs, even documents relating to the PIONET project.
- Faculty Technology Institute: An annual series of workshops held in May geared toward technology Faculty can use in and out of the classroom. Individual workshops are designed to meet a variety of interests and levels of expertise. Each year we bring back popular sessions geared towards every-day technology, working with digital media, and Moodle. We fill the rest of the schedule with sessions on emerging technologies or current hot topics at L&C.
- Staff Development Days: Information Technology and Human Resources team up to present three days of professional development for all Lewis & Clark College staff members. Classes will be offered in a range of topics selected for their pertinence to L&C staff. Sessions will run for an hour and fifteen minutes each, starting at 9AM and breaking for lunch at 12:00PM. The same schedule of classes will occur in the afternoon starting at 1PM and ending at 4:00PM.
