Training Services Update

Posted in Uncategorized on November 17, 2008 by

From the simplicity of designing a Microsoft PowerPoint slide to the complexity of creating an Adobe Flash presentation – Training Services has an abundance of course offerings.
Even though first semester classes are nearly over, Training Services has openings for seminars prior to the Christmas break.
In the instance that a course does not fit into your schedule or you need immediate assistance, custom training is available. To arrange for custom training, please email its.training@usask.ca or phone the Training Services office at 966-4666.
If you are interested in a course yet to be scheduled, add yourself to the notification list for the course and you will be emailed when that course has been scheduled.
Looking ahead to 2009, a new schedule will be posted on the website for courses occurring in the new year.
For a listing of the current offerings, please visit the Training website:

iPod Touch & iPhone Tips and Tricks

Posted in Did you Know? on November 12, 2008 by

In celebration of last week’s Technology Week, Training Services presented a one-hour course focusing on the iPod Touch and iPhone. Apple’s innovation has successfully combined work and play into a user-friendly design.
The iPhone 3G was the 2008 “Gadget of the Year” as voted on by several technology magazines and websites. It seemed fitting that the iPhone and iPod touch were highlighted in the session.
In the case that you were not in attendance, here are a few of the tips provided:
Unsure where a link leads? Press and hold the link and a pop-up will display the link information. Slide away from the link to abort navigating forward.
If the unit becomes unresponsive, a reboot can be initiated by holding the “home” button and the “sleep” button in unison – hold until the unit shows the Apple start screen.
With multiple screens containing applications, it becomes difficult to organize the icons. A quick way to move icons over multiple screens is to temporarily free up icon space on the dock and use the open spots to “transport” the icons to a new page.
