Expand Your Technology Horizons Through Learning TECHniques

Looking to learn something new or further your mastery of a particular technology service or program? Learning TECHniques is at your service.

Offering small, non-credit, hands-on technology training to all faculty, staff and students, Learning TECHniques covers a wide variety of topics including Microsoft Office 365 (email, calendar, OneDrive and more), pantherFILE, Adobe Photoshop, PowerPoint, and Web Content Management (CMS) to name a few. Training sessions about UWM enterprise services such as Office 365, pantherFILE and CMS are offered at no cost and online tutorials for these three services are available.

“We’re working to provide the University community with the resources necessary to master IT enterprise services,” said Therese Bohn, Learning TECHniques. “We want people to walk away enlightened and empowered.”

New offerings still available this fall included updated pantherFILE Web Client, as well as pantherFILE Xythos Client training sessions which reviewed new features and tools found in the service including bookmarks and thumbnail view. Also available was “Using Warehouse Student Data” which informed individuals about the resources available when querying student data from the UWM Data Warehouse. 

A full schedule of fall training sessions can be found at the LearningTECHniques website, with the spring semester roster becoming available in January.
