We will focus on Qualtrics, Google Forms and other tools for data gathering projects.  If you must use Qualtrics or Google Forms for your job, bring your questions or your skills and experience!

On most Wednesdays in the fall or spring semester, bring your lunch and meet with other Canisius faculty and staff to share tech tips.  Share your latest project, completed or otherwise, for feedback or suggestions.  Show us what you’re doing in your classes, or in your research, using web-based technologies.  As always, COLI staff are on hand to answer questions, and share the latest tips, resources and other things we’ve recently discovered.
