Build Your Technology and Teaching Expertise (BYTE) Week is back. Faculty, staff, and students are invited to take advantage of the break before the summer session starts by learning new computer skills in one of the 17 workshops offered between May 14 and 18.

There are two tracks offered–web development and online teaching. Individuals completing four workshops for each track and meeting the track requirements will receive a certificate and Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Workshop topics are:

“Creating, Editing and Uploading Web Pages,” “Tips for Connecting Your Course to the Internet,” “Analyzing Data Using Excel 2000,” and “Web Accessibility: Implementing Regulations.” Beginning classes on Photoshop, HTML, FrontPage 2000, WebCT, Flash, and Dreamweaver are also offered. There will also be a one-hour demonstration workshop on the Mason Enterprising Messaging Online system, the university’s new e-mail system. Most workshops last two to three hours.

BYTE Week offerings are presented by the library, the Learning Resource Office of University Computing and Information Systems, the STAR Center, and the Instructional Resource Center. The workshops are free, but registration is required. To view the listings and register online, visit http://ittraining.gmu.edu/.
