Technology Training: Have It Your Way

Web View | Print View

by Leni Silberman

ITSS Technology Training Services offers hands-on classes, lectures, drop-in sessions, one-on-one training, online courses, special classes on request, and computer lab rentals - all to meet the various training needs and levels of Stanford staff and faculty.

From computer neophytes to technical support personnel, we all need occasional training to keep up with the ever-changing world of technology. Unfortunately, our regular workload grows and grows, and time for this training gets harder and harder to find.

Some people can and like to take hands-on training, others absorb information best via lectures. Some people want individual instruction, at their own desk, when their schedule permits; others find online, self-paced instruction very convenient to take - at work or at home. Some groups need special classes just to address their needs, or need to rent a facility in which to hold their own training sessions.

Technology Training Services can meet all those demands. When you plan your mix of training for the year, check out the web sites below.
