Web Tools for Office and Department Administration

The Center for Online Learning and Innovation (COLI) will be holding workshops useful for faculty and staff to help manage office or department projects, committee work and collaborative activities online. These are excellent alternatives to confusing email threads or awkward use of D2L course spaces for administrative work.

Confluence, our wiki tool, provides a space online where members can easily add or edit content.  This is great for day-to-day work, strategic planning, or special projects.

  • Wednesday, October 26, 3:00 p.m.: Create your Project Management Workflow in Confluence
  • Tuesday, December 6, 10:00 a.m.: Confluence Kickstarter: A Brief Overview

Google Drive and related apps are great for creating and storing files that group or office members can easily add to or edit.

  • Tuesday, December 14, 10:00 a.m.:  Deliver and Accept Files Within Your Office using Google Drive.

Sign up for these and other COLI workshops today!
