At CAS-IT: TAP we train faculty to set up their personal websites as well as to work as a content manager on their organizational sites. Our standard web editing software programs for organizational sites are Adobe DreamWeaver and Adobe Contribute. Faculty websites can utilize a myriad of programs including: Microsoft Expression Web Editor, Microsoft Sharepoint, Macromedia/Adobe DreamWeaver, Macromedia/Adobe Contribute, DotNetNuke, Plone, and Drupal.
Note: Microsoft no longer supports Frontpage. CAS-IT: TAP is working with faculty to convert their sites from Frontpage to another web editing program which is selected based on the client's needs.
Besides web editing software, CAS-IT: TAP also trains faculty on using applications such as the Microsoft Office Suite, SPSS, scanning software, and video digitizing.
Most often, introductory classes are offered through the Center for Teaching, Learning, & Technology (CTLT). It is recommended to use CTLT training for an introduction on these software applications. CAS-IT: TAP proficiency training is generally geared towards custom or applied skill training.
Traditionally we offer one-on-one training with faculty but occasionally we do offer group training sessions on particular programs or processes. In the the past we have offered training on the following: Mallard Online Web Testing, Macromedia Dreamweaver, Microsoft FrontPage, Microsoft PowerPoint, converting from Mac to Windows, ASP.NET, Intranet and Online Form Development, Select Survey, and Secure Posting of Grades Online.
