Fall 2015 TeAchnology Workshop Series

I wanted to share this announcement of the Fall "technology in education" workshop series. The offices of the Briggs Library, Center for Small Towns, Information Technology, and Instructional and Media Technologies are pleased to announce the Fall 2015 Teachnology Series. The following sessions are being offered, free-of-charge, to UMM faculty and staff:

Fri. Nov. 6, noon–1:00
Part 1: Quick Qualtrics Introduction
Discuss the benefits of using Qualtrics from basic survey building to distribution to reporting.
Tues. Nov. 10, 10:30–11:30
Google Drive: Sharing and Collaborating
Google Drive makes sharing your files simple. If you want to send a file or folder to someone so that they can view, edit, or comment on it, you can share it with them directly in Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, or Slides, or through a link or email attachment. It also allows multiple people to edit the same file, and chat with each other for real-time collaboration. ​We will give you some helpful tips and allow time for Q&A and hands-on practice. ​​
Fri. Nov. 13, noon–1:00
Part 2: Qualtrics
Open session. Bring your questions! We will offer some ‘Tips & Tricks’ as well as ‘10 things you wish you knew about Qualtrics’ before you started your survey.
