Student Instructional Technology Services is offering a series of online workshops for students who would like to become more familiar with Accessing and Using VoiceThread. VoiceThread is a web-based content delivery application that allows students to assemble and narrate media-rich presentations that can be shared with professors, classmates, and others. What sets VoiceThread apart from other online content delivery tools is it permits viewers to comment (via text, audio, or video) on the content being shared – perfect for confirming understanding and encouraging discussion.
It’s simple to virtually attend! Interested students should select the link to join the workshop via Zoom at the date/time it is being offered. No RSVP is needed.
Contact Student Instructional Technology Services at email@example.com with questions.

Adobe Acrobat Pro and Adobe Creative Suite are now available, at no cost, to College of Charleston students, faculty, and staff for temporary use on personal computers through May 31, 2020 to assist with learning, teaching, and working remotely. The Adobe Acrobat Pro version allows you to create, edit, sign, and convert most PDF files to Word documents. The Adobe Creative Suite includes visual and design applications like Photoshop, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Premiere, and AfterEffects. If you would like to request access to Adobe Acrobat Pro or Adobe Creative Suite for your personal computer, please complete a ticket using the following link: https://cofc.teamdynamix.com/TDClient/1802/Portal/Requests/ServiceDet?ID=42751.
If you are using an institutionally-owed computer, you already have access to Adobe Acrobat Pro. To locate the software on a macOS, navigate to the Applications folder, then the Adobe Acrobat 2017 folder. On a PC, click Start and scroll to the Adobe Acrobat 2017 icon. Most institutionally-owed computers do not have the Adobe Creative Suite.
Please note, there will be a cost to continue using products after the temporary access to Adobe software for personal computers ends on May 31, 2020.
Contact the IT Service desk with questions by email firstname.lastname@example.org, chat at help.cofc.edu, or phone at 843.953.3375.
