Instructional Technology Resources

If you need assistance learning about your computer, an application, creating web pages, class handouts, putting a course online or creating multimedia presentations for your classes, then you've come to the right place. One-on-one assistance is available Monday through Friday at the TLC. Call or drop by — we are located downstairs behind the Robert E. Swenson Library.

There are a number of resources on the TLC site designed to help you create and publish a webpage. There is also a link for discounted software if you are interested in working from home. Curious about copyright, using a Web 2.0 application, or web conferencing with a group of students or colleagues? We're the ones to ask.
