Grow Your IT Skills with OIT Training Classes

Author: Anne Kolaczyk

Do you need to cultivate your IT skills? This spring, the Office of Information Technologies (OIT) has a variety of classes to help your IT skills flourish.

Time-Out for Tech Sessions

Time-Out for Tech is a series of short (30 minute) sessions on a variety of technical topics, designed to keep you in the know without sacrificing a lot of time in your busy schedule.

The Spring 2022 series includes the Google First Wizarding College, Google Drive Changes with Shortcuts, New Zoom Features and much more. For the complete Time-Out for Tech schedule, go to this knowledge article.

To register for the Spring 2022 series just join the Time-Out for Tech Google group. (Previous registrants do not need to rejoin the group.) Once you are a member of the group, the Time-Out sessions will appear in your calendar. The individual Zoom links are added to the calendar event the day before each session.
