For New Faculty and Staff

Call the Computing Help Desk at x3333 to schedule your New User Orientation. A staff member will discuss with and show you a brief overview of academic, library, and especially technology resources, and point you in the right direction for your in-depth needs.

On-Campus Training and Instruction

  • Request trainings for Faculty and Staff (e.g., Duo 2-Factor Authentication, Google Drive Basics or Best Practices, or how we can help you with new staff department-specific workflows) for your department or other Wellesley group, including having LTS join existing meetings for a brief demo. 
  • Sakai Training for Faculty 
    Visit our Sakai documentation page for tutorials, or get in touch with an instructional technologist.
  • Course-Related Multimedia Instruction for Faculty
    Contact a member of the instructional technology staff to request a session for your class. Sessions can be either in or outside class time.
  • Library Research Instruction for Faculty
    Request a session for your class by contacting the research and instruction librarian for your discipline directly.
  • Workday Training 
    Email workday@wellesley.edu to request a Workday orientation or training.
