Instructional Technology’s Computer Training staff provides free computer training to current St. Edward's students, faculty and staff.
Trainings offered include workshops, class trainings for faculty, one-on-one instruction, new employee trainings and department/group trainings. We offer instruction adaptable to students, faculty and staff with different learning needs and styles.
In these workshops, we provide online curated resources and documentation. These trainings usually last between 30 minutes to 1 1/2 hours depending on the content. We currently are taking trainings by request. Please fill out our training request form to schedule a training with one of our available trainers.
Instructional Technology also has a YouTube channel with more than 140 short video tutorials, covering a wide variety of topics on email, Adobe CS, Microsoft Office and more. These straightforward videos answer some of the most common software questions on campus.
Class Training for Faculty
Our training staff can conduct a session for your classroom on any supported software program. We will work with you on adjusting our workshops to fit your curriculum. Please fill out our Class Training for Faculty Form to schedule a training session.
If you're working on a time-sensitive project and are unable to attend any of our monthly scheduled workshops, we can arrange a personal appointment with one of our trainers. Please fill out our One-on-One Request Form to sign up for an appointment.
Instructional Technology offers in-depth Instructional Design services for faculty and provides one-on-one faculty consultations. Our team works with faculty to design their courses with the appropriate technologies to address desired learning goals and accurate assessment.
They train faculty on using Canvas, blogs, wikis, digital audio/video, streaming services, podcasting and online classroom environments. They also provide assistance with research design along with statistical setup and analysis.
Please submit a support ticket to request a faculty consultation and schedule a meeting with one of our instructional designers.
New Employee Training
We provide new university employees with a 60-minute introduction to campus technology services. This usually includes an introduction to Outlook, Email, Box and, by request, Banner and myHilltop. The head of your department can schedule an appointment by filling out the New Employee Training Form. Please fill out the form at least three days prior to the new employee’s start date. The new employee must have their account created and available to use before the training session.
We can keep your staff up to speed with new technology, and we will work with you to fit our sessions to your department needs. Please fill out the Department Training Request Form to schedule a group training session for your department. Examples of previous department trainings include: and overview of Microsoft Office and an introduction on how to edit St. Edward's University websites or using Box.
Screencasting: Video Tutorials
A screencast is a video capture of any action taken from a screen like a desktop, usually with voice narration. Screencasts are often instructional in nature, allowing the creator to explain how to use a software program like on our training YouTube channel, or lynda.com, or to demonstrate how to solve math problems on a digital "whiteboard" like Khan Academy.
Our training staff can assist your office with planning your screencast project, developing a production process, coaching on how to prepare scripts and technical training on screencasting software such as Camtasia. Training staff may also offer production assistance on eligible university projects.
