Remote Technology Tools and Training Sessions

    March 16, 2020

    In support of the ongoing campus efforts to transition to online learning and instruction, Information technology has launched a Remote Technology Tools website and is offering training sessions during the next two weeks.

    The Remote Technology Tools website gathers information on all of our current technology tools. It is available through the my.scranton portal and at scranton.edu/remotetechnologytools. We will continuously be updating this page.

    In light of the current measures, we will be holding the following training sessions in small groups. As such, registration is required. You will receive an email confirmation when your seat has been assigned (from julie.brackeva-phillips@scranton.edu). All the sessions will be held in Hyland 402.
