We wanted to kick off the semester with a post that highlights some of the tools and resources available to UIS faculty, staff and students provided by ITS! These great tools are all right at your fingertips and free, so be sure to check them out! We are sharing a few today, but for a complete list of ITS’ services to the campus community, please visit our website at http://www.uis.edu/informationtechnologyservices/.
- On-Demand Training: This is definitely a valuable resource for the campus community, particularly because it can be accessed from anywhere at any time. If you have a question on how to format a paper at word you are finishing up one night, simply log into Lynda and search for a video that will show you exactly how to work on formatting in Word. Lynda offers thousands of videos on tons of different programs for all different levels of expertise and users can even choose to work on complete courses and track their progress.
- Box.com: The file storage and management system offered by UIS to the campus community is an easy to use and accessible system that not only stores files but offers various options for managing content and collaboration. Box.com is a cloud-based system and can be accessed both on and off-campus, anywhere with an internet connection!
- ITS Client Services: For any questions you have about how to use programs, issues you may be experiencing, or if you need someone to take a look at your computer, ITS Client Services is here for you! Located in the lower level of Brooken’s Library, computers are available for use stocked with software, media equipment is available for check out, workshops are held, and more!
