Student Technology Support Resources
Do your students need technology skills to successfully complete their coursework? We can assist you in providing your students with targeted resources to develop these skills.
Technology Peer Tutoring
Student technology peer tutors are available to provide one-on-one assistance. Technology peer tutoring is currently available for Excel, Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator, InDesign & Photoshop), Matlab, and presentation software (Google presentations, Keynote, PowerPoint & Prezi) through the Technology Help locations in Coffman, Blegen, and Coffey Hall. For more information, see Student Technology Peer Tutoring.
Self-help Guides are an approachable online tool that assists students in quickly finding resources to complete a specific task. Examples of some of our guides include:
- WebEx Meeting Center: Plan and Conduct an Online Meeting
- Google Drive: Work with Files and Folders
- Content Strategy: Plan and Maintain Website Content
Technology Resource Curation
Faculty and instructors interested in assistance with curating a list of course-relevant tutorials can send email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Resources can come from a variety of sources, but we typically draw most from Lynda.com, an extensive library of video-based tutorials available at no cost to current University of Minnesota students, faculty, and staff system-wide.
