Sometimes colleagues tell us they feel there is too much technology for such little time. TAC recognizes this challenge and seeks to empower faculty and staff with concise, timely, and usable information. These Academic Technology Newsletters, and TAC Quick Steps, from previous years, are intended to give hints, short-cuts, options, and ideas. These tips are unpolished gemstones which can be crafted into objects of lasting value with some focused effort. If any part of our effort raises a question, potential, or idea, you are encouraged to contact us so we may help develop it further.
