LIS Workshops for March – April: Google Analytics, Drupal and Video-based Learning

Our current workshop schedule is now available.  Visit go/lisworkshops to view upcoming offerings and sign up for topics of interest.  Choose from Drupal introductions that cover basic web site maintenance skills, work sessions where you can get help with specific questions about how to improve your departmental web site, as well as Google Analytics to learn how to unlock the mysteries of your website’s traffic patterns.

We are also offering several opportunities to learn how to access and use  lynda.com  — Middlebury’s fabulous online learning resource that uses short videos to help you acquire new business and technology skills.  Anyone who is unfamiliar with this “no-cost-to-you” training benefit is missing out!

Lynda’s recently added courses include such varied topics as “Up and Running with Excel What-if Analysis,” “Delivering Employee Feedback,” and “The Art of Photoshop Compositing.”  Watch a single video or work through an entire course, but be warned — it’s addictive.

Sub Sandwich? Noooo Subpage (Drupal Classes and Work Sessions)

Needing to learn how to edit your Department’s webpage? Want to know how to add sub pages, pictures and sidebars?  Checkout go/lisworkshops for upcoming Drupal Intro classes and Work Sessions.  From basic content to sidebars, the intro class will give you what you need to get started.  Join us for a Drupal intro class and, for you more advanced users, bring your challenges to a work session and we’ll help you work through them.

Are you suffering from SSDS (Sidebar, Subpage, Drupal Syndrome)?

Is your department head asking you to update the department’s web page? Does the thought of adding a sidebar make you call the Helpdesk? Fear not, join me for a Drupal Intro class. We’ll learn the basics of Drupal so you’ll be adding links, pictures, and a host of other cool things to your page the very next day. For you more advanced users who may be struggling with needs beyond the basics, join us for a work session. We’ll help you get the job done and you’ll leave with the “know how.” You can look for upcoming workshop dates at go/lisworkshops and sign up for the class that fits your needs. See you on the sidebar or maybe in a subpage.

Liaison Discussion: Curricular technology update

Topic: Curricular technology update. Led by Joe Antonioli.

Who’s “Required”: Primary liaisons, please try to attend if you can. Sorry in advance for any conflicts.
Where and when: Wednesday, September 18, 10-11 am. Wilson Media Lab.

Description:
The spring workshop was so useful that we asked Joe for a fall workshop! Joe will provide updates on curricular technology including a demo of the SansSpace online language lab.

***
“Liaison Discussion Section” meetings address research and/or technology topics of interest to liaisons. They can be conversations, or presentations, or both. They take place most often on the 3rd week of the month, but in order to allow people who work different hours to attend, they’re sometimes scheduled for different days/times.

Drupal Work Session Opportunity — Monday, July 15

In response to requests for a Drupal Work Session we are offering one on Monday, July 15 at 2 pm.  Click here to sign up.  Come join us and work on your web pages, uninterrupted, with someone right there to answer all of your questions and help you with any problems.

Be sure to visit go/lisworkshops periodically as we do add “special request” sessions in cases where others are welcome to attend.

Looking for some other type of training?  We are happy to work with you to arrange “by request” sessions for your group, classroom space and staff resources permitting.  Send a description of your workshop needs to:  helpdesk@middlebury.edu.

 

Where is the LIS Summer Workshop Schedule?

We currently have just one open workshop on the horizon — Introduction to Drupal on Thursday, July 11 at 1pm.  If you are a new content provider who needs to learn the basics of creating and maintaining a departmental web site (or are someone who would simply like a refresher), you’re in luck.  Click here to sign up.

Be sure to visit go/lisworkshops periodically as we do include “special request” sessions in cases where others are welcome to attend.

We do not typically advertise many open workshops during the summer months as attendance is often limited due to vacations and classroom spaces are at a premium while the Language Schools are in session.  We are, however, happy to work with you to arrange “by request” training for your group, classroom space and staff resources permitting.  Send a description of your workshop needs to:  helpdesk@middlebury.edu.

Don’t forget about  lynda.com  — Middlebury’s fabulous online learning resource.  Summer is the perfect time to learn something new, such as iPhone Photography, from Shooting to Storytelling or Managing and Analyzing Data in Excel.
