8619731692_2382cf2b21_cDear colleagues,

To provide new University staff and students with useful information about the wide range of services offered by Information Technology Services (ITS), we will have a series of orientation activities running between late August and mid-September. All new University members are welcome to join.

1. Use of AV/IT Equipment in Central Classrooms

To familiarize themselves with the classroom facility, teachers and class instructors are recommended to join one of the training sessions on use of AV/IT Equipment in Central Classrooms. Through this session, they will be able to learn how to use the control panel, visualizer and other AV/IT equipment in the centrally timetabled classrooms.

For the class schedule and registration, please visit http://www.its.hku.hk/documentation/handbook/its-guide/2014-2015/orientation-seminars#classrooms.

2. Orientation Seminars

The seminar on “Introduction to Information Technology Services (ITS)” gives an introduction on the comprehensive range of central IT and network services offered by ITS. The seminar will be repeated four times.

In addition to the introductory session, different orientation sessions about teaching and learning will be arranged. Staff and students are welcome to attend seminars on “Introduction of Moodle Learning Management System and Panopto Lecture Capture System” and “About the University’s Research Support Computing Environment and the HPC/HTC Facilities” that follow the introduction session. You can also join the “Chi Wah Learning Commons Guided tour” to learn more about our learning spaces.

For the schedule of the orientation seminars, please refer to http://www.its.hku.hk/documentation/handbook/its-guide/2014-2015/orientation-seminars#seminars.

3. Exhibition

An Exhibition will be held at Chi Wah Learning Commons G/F in the first two weeks (Sep 1 – Sep 10) of the first semester with display boards showing the core IT Services, in particular the support for teaching and learning and research with University. Staff will be there from 1-2 pm on Monday to Friday (except September 9, 2014) to introduce ITS facilities and answer questions.
