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 offers short sessions to help you get started using various software titles.

Currently, the main focus is on the IU Box retirement and migration. We regularly offer webinars to help you learn how to use Google at IU My Drive or Microsoft OneDrive at IU for individual file storage and collaboration. We also offer training on using IU's institutional file storage offerings from Google and Microsoft.

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.
