IU graduate students are welcome to join our online workshops from anywhere in the world–whether you’re on campus, at home, or in Reykjavík, we want you to have all the resources you need to fund your graduate studies. For Spring 2012, we are offering three online sessions of our popular database workshop in addition to three computer lab sessions (all sessions will cover the same material):
Advanced Strategies for Funding Databases
February 29 (Wednesday), 12pm – online
March 9 (Friday), 2pm - Wells Library 402 computer lab (in the West Tower)
March 28 (Wednesday), 1pm – online
April 5 (Thursday), 10am – online
April 13 (Friday), 2pm - Wells Library 402 computer lab
You don’t need to sign up or let us know you’d like to participate.
To join one of our online workshops, follow these steps:
- Go to the workshop entry page: http://breeze.iu.edu/r82933321/.
- Enter the meeting as a Guest.
- Use a headset (or microphone/speaker combo) to participate. If you don’t have a microphone, you can listen to the presentation and ask questions using the chat feature of the meeting page.
That’s it! We will open the meeting page about 15 minutes before each workshop begins. If you have any trouble entering the meeting, or questions about the workshops, please send us an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’d rather attend a workshop in person, we have also scheduled two sessions of the same workshop in a computer lab in Wells Library. You don’t need to sign up for these, either–just show up!
March 9 (Friday), 2pm Wells Library 402 (in the West Tower)
April 13 (Friday), 2pm Wells Library 402
Note: Online workshops will be conducted using Adobe Connect, which does not require the installation of any special software. But you must use a computer that has the latest version of Adobe Flash Player installed (this is a routine update for most personal computers, so you probably already have it).
If you have never attended an Adobe Connect meeting before, you can:
