Are you teaching an online class or want to add video to supplement your face-to-face class? Want to hold synchronous meetings or conduct office hours with your online students? Want to set up a Web conference? This workshop will not only show you how to add a session to your myCourses page, but also teach you the tools available.

With so many devices—smartphones, laptops, netbooks, tablets, and desktops—it is hard to make sure your information is on the correct device when you need it. So why not put it in the "cloud" so you can access it wherever you go? In this workshop we will look at what it means to store your files "in the cloud" and the types of applications that are on the market for synchronizing information across multiple devices. Feel free to bring any of your devices to see how the cloud can work to keep your files up-to-date.
Smartphones are becoming more popular with the updates to the iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone, and many others. As more users move toward these devices, many service providers—including libraries—are following with mobile-based resources. Learn what these different providers can provide and just how easy it can be to have the Web at your fingertips.
