Course Studio Essentials

Course Studio gives faculty the ability to access, create, and manage home pages for each course as well as create consolidated courses that can be accessed by many classes. Each course home page contains areas for files, photos, announcements, links, a message board, and chat room. Enrolled students are automatically added to an instructor's course and additional users can be added if they have a portal account.

Managing Your Email

Practical tips on processing and organizing your email more effectively will be shared. In addition to creating rules and folders, other Mt. SAC services will be presented to help manage email. This workshop is perfect for individuals who need to reduce the size of their email or feel overwhelmed with the amount of email that they receive. Bring your webmail password to the live demonstration. Call the Help Desk prior to training if you will need to retrieve your webmail password.
