OIT announces the Going Google Migration Calendar and the OIT Training Calendar. These calendars are meant to serve as a guide to when the upcoming events regarding the transition to Google Apps for Education will occur. We will be updating the calendars with events as needed throughout the transition.
The Going Google Migration Calendar includes time periods for migration of students, faculty, and staff, along with the scheduled training sessions for specific offices and departments in December and the training sessions in January open to all faculty and staff.
Most of the events on these calendars start in December and January. You can navigate the calender using the buttons in the upper left of the calendar. You can switch the calendar among the week, month, and agenda views using the tabs in the upper right corner.
The OIT Training Calendar is a reference for all of the training that OIT is currently offering. The vast majority of current training classes are related to Google Apps for Education, but other training opportunities from OIT (such as the recent photo editing and blogging events co-sponsored with the Office of International Education) will be posted here as well.
If any of these training events interest you, simply click on the title of the event and the description will include a link for registering for the class. Registration is important for holding your seat in a class, particularly for the Google Apps for Education training offered in January as these classes will be in high demand.
Most training will be offered in the Learning Technology Center in Baltimore Hall. Wireless access is available in the Learning Technology Center, so if you would prefer to participate in the training using your college-issued laptop, feel free to bring it along. If you have a desktop, there are currently 10 desktop stations in the lab and additional laptops that we are happy to loan out for training.
We have also embedded the OIT Training Calendar on our web site at http://oit.smcm.edu. You don’t even need to bookmark the page for the calendar – just go to the OIT web site, and search for Training in the search bar.
If you would like to schedule a separate training for your office, department, or group, please contact Jennifer Wright (firstname.lastname@example.org) to set up a custom training session for Google Apps for Education.
