Learning computer applications, different programs, programming languages, and slick computer skills is important to most if not all students irrespective of academic disciplines. If you are wondering about honing your programming skills or if you are a beginner who wants to learn a spreadsheet application (e.g. Microsoft excel), IT Training is an amazing resource for you.
IT Training has offices both on IU and on IUPUI campuses. The department offers numerous instructor-led computing workshops catering to a range of needs. The spring semester schedule is now available.
Students have opportunity to register for more than 150 workshops and webinars.
If you want to learn on you own, there are numerous self-study training resources available. Learning new skills on your own is indeed a great skill, and having necessary resources to be able to self-learn is a privilege available to IU students. Self-learning also includes video-based e-learning courses from “Lynda.com”, an online training library. Example courses: Adobe and Microsoft applications and technologies; web design; digital photography, video and audio; Mac applications; programming, and more.
There are also partnership opportunities for your research group and/or your department. IT Training will collaborate with you to assist your educational needs.
My personal experiences of “Intro to High Performance Computing” and “GPU computing” workshops have been incredible. The former was one day and the latter was a five days workshop.
IT Training serves more than 30,000 participants each year across all IU campuses. IT skills are necessary today in a lot of careers and they can be very useful for your work productivity and efficiency. This is your opportunity to obtain knowledge for free.
