Improve Your Tech Skills Over Lunch with OIT's Lunch & Learn Sessions

Technology changes can be hard to keep up with. So grab your lunch and join OIT via Zoom to learn about tech topics chosen specifically for you. Don't miss the next OIT Lunch & Learn session:

Holiday Socializing Over Zoom
Tuesday, Dec. 10 from 12 noon to 1 p.m.

Spending time with families and friends is important over the holidays, but it’s vital to adhere to safe social guidelines as well. This session will feature ways to socialize using  Zoom and other virtual meeting apps. You can stay safe and be with your loved ones!

The session will cover playing games on online game sites, using gaming apps that allow you to form your own groups, and other ways to play games remotely. And if mingling is what you want, that can be done using these virtual meeting apps too. The session will introduce you to various apps beyond what Notre Dame supports, but with some cautions as to how to use them safely. Come learn how to make your holidays safe and merry!

Register for Lunch & Learns at endeavor.nd.edu. Questions call 574-631-7227 or email training@nd.edu. Zoom links will be shared the day before the session.

New for the Fall: Time-Out for Tech

OIT has a new way for you to stay up-to-date with technology in small bytes: Time-Out for Tech. Every semester, the program will offer a series of short (30 minutes or less), narrowly focused sessions brought to you via Zoom.

The goal is to show you new features and special tricks, or pass along timely information. It’s the perfect way to keep your skills current when you don’t have time for a full training class. Take a look at this OIT news article for the full session schedule and registration details.

Registration is not through Endeavor, but by joining a Google Group. Once you join the group, all of the current semester’s sessions will appear on your calendar. (The Zoom link will be added to the calendar event the day before the session.) You can choose which sessions to attend and which to skip; you don’t need to notify anyone of your choices. And if work gets in the way at the last minute? All sessions will be recorded and the links will be sent out to everyone registered for the series, whether they attended the session or not.

To register for the Time-Out for Tech series, go to go.nd.edu/timeoutfortech and follow the prompts to join the Google Group.

To see the current semester’s full schedule of classes, including TIme-Out for Tech, go to Discover IT.

 

Instructor-Led Classes

OIT offers a wide range of instructor-led training classes. Most of these classes are free to faculty, staff, and students; those classes with an outside cost (on-call instructor or special materials) will continue to have a charge attached to them. Because our classes are often in demand, we are also instituting a Late Cancellation/No-Show policy. Registrants who do not attend a scheduled class or who cancel the enrollment fewer than three business days in advance will incur a $100 charge.

Special Request Training

In addition to our scheduled instructor-led classes, OIT also provides special request training options. There may be a charge associated with special request training. This training includes:

  • One-on-one and small group technology instruction
  • Guest instruction in faculty classrooms when students need technology training
  • Other alternatives designed to meet your teaching and learning or administrative needs

Contact the OIT Training team by phone at (574) 631-7227 or email training@nd.edu.

Campus Use of OIT Training Labs

Two labs are available on a limited basis to Notre Dame groups for training activities in which the OIT is not directly involved. More information >

Late Cancellation/No-Show Policy

Once you register for a class through the Endeavor learning management system, a seat is reserved for you unless you cancel. Due to high demand, many classes fill up quickly and accrue waiting lists. If you are unable to attend your scheduled class, it is important that your seat be made available to another participant.

A registrant who cannot attend a scheduled class must cancel at least three business days in advance. A registrant who does not attend a scheduled class or who cancels the enrollment fewer than three business days in advance will incur a $100.00 charge to the registrant's department FOAPAL. When a cancellation fee is incurred, a notice of the charge will be sent to the registrant, the registrant's supervisor, and the department business manager.

To cancel an enrollment, log in to http://endeavor.nd.edu and click on Learner Dashboard. In your Timeline, find the class and click View Details > Cancel Registration. Enrollees who do not have access to a computer should contact the OIT Training and Transitions team at 631-7227 or email training@nd.edu.

An exception to this policy may be made for a last-minute illness or family emergency requiring absence from work. No exception will be made for an absence or late cancellation resulting from an unanticipated change in workload or schedule.
