Training Sessions

IT offers a few training courses for the faculty and staff of UCA to help better utilize some of the services we provide. Below is a list of the sessions we currently offer.

The session schedule can be found on the IT Calendar

GroupWise Basics
GroupWise Basics gives the opportunity for you to become familiar with the basics of email messaging using the GroupWise application. You will cover the different message types, and how to read, respond, forward, and delete messages. Being able to select a name from a list of addressees is an essential part of any email program. While in class, you will learn how to interact with the GroupWise address book, using it to manage your contacts, and to create your own groups of email recipients. You will learn how to manage their email accounts by checking the size of your messages, moving mail to other locations, and how to customize the GroupWise environment. The current issues concerning Junk mail and what to do about them will also be discussed.

GroupWise Calendaring and Task Management
GroupWise 7.0 calendaring and task management training deals with collaborating with other faculty and staff using meetings, delegating tasks, and sending reminder notes to others. You will learn how to monitor those invitations, how to retract and reschedule them, and how to set up recurring events. You will also learn about multiple calendars and how to share their calendars with others.

iFolder
Novell® iFolder is a Net services software solution that allows your files to automatically follow you everywhere—online, offline, all the time—across multiple workstations and the internet. You simply store your files in the iFolder directory on your workstation. As you work, the iFolder client intelligently tracks and logs updates to your files. It can automatically and transparently synchronize those changes through Internet or network connections with your files on the iFolder server and the various workstations that you use.

Sophos Anti-Virus/Spyware
Sophos Anti-Virus/Spyware training will introduce the student to the basics of computer viruses and spyware: why we have them and the software we needed to detect and eliminate them. Students will learn about current threats, such as viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, and potentially unwanted applications. In class practice labs include scanning a computer for threats, setting alerts for instant notification of discovered threats, cleaning up infected files, and how to update the threat list. Students will also learn how to prevent potentially unwanted applications from running on their computers.
