Library Tech Desk
The Library Tech Desk is here to help you if you have questions about software use, need project advice or have technology questions. Visit their website for more information, including a detailed description of their mission and contact information. They would be happy for you to schedule a thirty minute appointment, or drop in during their operating hours.
Computer and Information Systems (CIS)
CIS can help you with your computer hardware and software problems. It is a good idea to stop at CIS first, before searching out expensive, independent computer repair shops. The CIS website also has lots of helpful information; visit their website to find out about free software downloads, the multi-function printers on campus and other support.
Tips for Online Students
Learning in an online setting can be a rewarding and challenging experience. You can connect with your fellow students and peers in novel ways while learning about new subjects. However, being an online student does require ownership on the part of the student–you have to be sure to log in frequently and participate in class discussions. Online course work is not synonymous with easy course work. It is important to ensure that you are comfortable with basic computing skills and that you have a place where you can seek help if you run into technical difficulties. In addition, your learning will be more meaningful if you can find ways to connect your classroom content with your outside of class experiences.
