ITS Offers Training for New Office 2007

Information Technology Services (ITS) will offer two hands-on training sessions to transition faculty and staff to the new Office 2007.

"These sessions are designed to help you make a smooth change from Office 2003 to Office 2007 and to acquaint you with the new features now available," said Erin King, instructional design specialist for ITS. "Please be aware that ITS added Office 2007 to all of our open computer labs and hi-tech classrooms. Beginning in the fall 2008 semester, Office 2003 will no longer be available in these labs and hi-tech rooms."

All sessions will take place in 007A Roskens Hall at the following dates and times:
