ITS Orientations for New Staff

Dear colleagues,

To provide new University staff with useful information about the wide range of services offered by Information Technology Services (ITS), a series of orientation activities will be conducted 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, new teachers and class instructors are encouraged to join one of the training sessions on the 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.
