It’s one of the few new topics in this year’s programming, which also covers how to use LinkedIn Learning to add skills that will help in a changing workplace (February 9) and how to use Zoom for team building. teams (March 23).

The sessions, streamed on Zoom, will run until May 4 and will also cover traditionally popular topics such as how to make your online meetings more accessible (March 9) and how to get the most out of Box (April 6).

“I think people tend to rely on this series,” said Trina Rodriguez, training and education coordinator for Duke OIT, which runs the workshops. “Even though we have been using Microsoft Teams since the start of the pandemic, our workshops on it still attract 50 or 60 people. I think it shows that people are always looking for new answers. I see it as a resource for people to get that information and learn more about the things they touch. »
