Fall 2010 Newsletter


In the Spotlight

Look for ITServices on campus in October to learn more about online security!

 

In order for our computers to serve us well, we must respect and protect them. ITServices has a wealth of information available about safe computing practices, and we want to share it with you. Look for us over the lunch hour in the Queen's Centre and Mackintosh-Corry Hall so we can tell you about:

... and much more! When you stop by, pick up free bags, pens, bookmarks and magnets, courtesy of ITServices.

 



ITServices Announces Fall 2010 Workshops

 

The ITServices Workshop schedule for this Fall is now available online. Please note that these workshops are offered, free of charge, to all staff and faculty at Queen's. New offerings this semester include:

  • a workshop on Manipulating Data in Excel (ideal for those working with PeopleSoft reports);
  • a variety of sessions on Moodle (the online course management system that will be replacing WebCT); and
  • the expansion of the Working Within WebPublish course into two workshops.

In addition, we have scheduled hands-on workshops for Introduction to WebPublish and four different lectures on Web Accessibility.

 

To view the entire roster of events this fall, go to our Workshops page. You will need to login with your NetID and password.

 

Visit the ITServices website to learn more about the variety of professional development opportunities available through ITServices. 

 

Registration

All Workshops are free of charge. However, we do request that as space is limited, you register in advance and cancel your reservation if you cannot attend. 

 

Following a pilot project this spring, we have moved registration for all of our events to Moodle. Please go to the Registration Process page of our website for directions on how to register as a first time login or as a returning user.

ITServices Outreach Brown Bag


ITServices hosts Outreach Brown Bags several times per year to share IT-related news, services and best practices with you, and also to invite you to present a novel IT-related accomplishment or solution from within your faculty or department.

 

An Outreach Brown Bag is being planned for October 27, and will feature Jennifer Massey (Office of the Associate Vice Principal and Dean of Student Affairs) speaking about StudentVoice!, a company that provides the tools and technology to help design and deliver electronic surveys. Through Student Affairs Research and Assessment, Queen's faculty, staff and graduate students have free access to the services provided by StudentVoice!

 

If you would like to be notified about this or other ITServices Outreach events, please subscribe to our ITS-INFO mailing list. (Note: ITAdmin Reps are automatically subscribed to this list.)

 

 

 

ITServices is committed to accessibility for persons with disabilities. Please contact us by emailing educate@queensu.ca if you have any particular accessibility requirements.
