Getting started webinars

Learning a new tech skill can help build your resume, satisfy a continuing education requirement, or simply make your workday more efficient.

The Getting Started with IT Training webinars give you a quick introduction to online courses available at no cost through IU Expand. In just 30 minutes (or less!) you'll see examples of what to expect from the course and learn how to enroll. You'll also get an exercise file to work through what you've just learned.

The Getting Started with IT Training webinar series will focus on the IU Box retirement for Summer 2020. Continuing in July, we will be offering webinars to help you prepare for your individual file migration and how to use your destination file storage service (Google at IU My Drive or Microsoft OneDrive at IU).

Don't worry if you can't view the webinar live—a recording of the content will be available for you to view at your convenience.

Check back to this page after the session to find the recording link.
