Workshops are less than an hour in length and provide an opportunity for groups to learn a specific topic. Up to 10 students can be accommodated and we provide laptops or we will book a computer lab. We have various topics you have identified as needed by you. You may attend any and all of the workshops, we just ask that you sign-up to ensure we have a spot for you. This may be done by accessing the online registration found at training.usask.ca. IT4U Workshopsare listed. We do need at least 6 people in a class to run these sessions, so get a group of students together, and get registered.
Contact us if you would like other topics added to our list. We have the entire Adobe Creative Suite loaded onto our laptops and have added additional media software for video presentations.
