Individual appointments

At times individuals will need “Just in Time Training” when they are ready to use a certain application. This can be provided in person, via Internet or on the phone.

3rd Party Resources

Many technology applications providers create training materials. Links to these resources will be regularly posted on this webpage. 3rd parties, such as Google and Skype also provide a variety of applications designed to support group work, such as Google Doc, Google calendar, Skype conference call, Skype video and Skype application share, to name a few.

Division/Department specific training and project assistance

There are some divisions and departments that will benefit from ongoing and specific training and assistance.

Staff needs surveys and reports

The training needs of Collin staff will constantly change and regular surveys will provide needed information on everything from topics to times, days and delivery methods for training.

Assistance in managing virtual/web based meetings
Assistance can be provided for first time users of web meetings. This will allow the content presenter to learn how to manage the technology more comfortably than trying to do both content and technology management at the same time.
