Academic Technology Newsletter & Quick Steps

Quick Steps FeaturesSometimes colleagues tell us they feel there is too much technology for such little time. Academic Technology recognizes this challenge and seeks to empower faculty and staff with concise, timely, and usable information. The Academic Technology newsletter (formerly known as TAC Quick Steps) is intended to give hints, short-cuts, options, and ideas. These tips are unpolished gemstones which can be crafted into objects of lasting value with some focused effort. If any part of our effort raises a question, potential, or idea, you are encouraged to contact us so we may help develop it further.
