Microsoft cloud storage – One Cloud

I’ve been experimenting with the new AAU/Microsoft cloud storage with great success. However, there’s room for many trainings, tutorials, and tips on this new tech tool. The Wiki is a start (https://wiki.academyart.edu/display/IKB/OneDrive+and+Office+Online+Support), but without training and support, this tool could be under-used.

Help Desk ticket photos

Would it be possible to allow photos to be submitted with Help Desk tickets? I find photos often assist in describing and clarifying technical problems.

Thanks for that request. We totally agree and have just finished testing out a replacement help desk ticket system. You’ll now find that our help desk system accepts attachments. Unfortunately, you’ll also have to take the initial step of logging in.

These tutorials will be a great resource–thanks! As a coordinator, I can link to a tutorial to answer a teacher’s question.

Sunburst Media Software by Marsha Chan

Marsha Chan is a professional ESL teacher at Mission College. She often presents at CATESOL and TESOL. She has her own pronunciation product called “Phrase by Phrase Pronunciation”. I think this software could be good to have in our MML and might be something within our budget. She has DVDs, along with a book, but also customized educational licensing. It seems like there might be an option to purchase just the software, rather than get a subscription service. It would be interesting to find out the specifics on that.

The link to this product is here: http://www.sunburstmedia.com/Phrase.html
Her pricing is here: http://www.sunburstmedia.com/Price.html

Might be worth checking out.

Camtasia – Video Based Learning Software

Camtasia was the video-making software most recommended at TESOL 2015. Do we have this access to this software at AAU?

Something Similar for Students

Not every student knows every bit of computer maintenance or is shy about asking for help from a teacher or a fellow students. Nor can they necessarily contact Tech Support. Especially when it comes to their personal computer. Could we get an easy online access for computer specific help directed to students?
