Hey Y’all,

It’s me, Seth, the Writing and Great Works Program Manager. I’ve been working with the Center for Teaching and Learning on getting folks prepared for the fall. The casual “I” in this document is moi. I’m reusing a tutorial here that I’d originally done a variation of with my students. Feel free to use it or parts with your students if you like, or perhaps it proves useful in exploring some new tech for yourself.

With both hands on deck,

The following interactive tutorial will help you get comfortable with—or refresh—your skills on some key technologies for the fall semester.

This module will take you through getting setup on and utilizing each of the following platforms:

  • Blogs @ Baruch (WordPress)
  • Google Drive/Docs
  • Slack
  • Zoom
  • Baruch Webmail (Microsoft Outlook)

Some of you may be saying, “I already know how to use these!” That’s great! This module will take you less time. You may still find some of it useful.
