Professional Learning Opportunities

Online Tips & Tricks 

We know the past few months have been crazy and we could all use some support for the technology platforms we’re relying on these days to do our jobs. The Classified Senate, ASLT Division, and Student Services Division are happy to announce next week’s kick-off of the Online Tips & Tricks workshops.

  • These workshops will be live via Zoom all three days but will also be recorded and posted below for you to access anytime following the date of the training
  • These workshops are focused on giving you some quick skills you can use right away (Zoom, Outlook, file sharing and cloud storage), and if you want to go more in depth you should stay tuned for our Cornerstone/VRC orientation coming soon, which will guide you through the new and improved Vision Resource Center platform known as Cornerstone. Remember It is now LinkedIn Learning and is part of Cornerstone/VRC, free to all community college staff, and has over 7,000 e-Learning modules (technology training videos).
