2 Overview Latest technologies deployed to campus WebEx Google features you may have missed Telepresence Helix video streaming Corel Suite Resources for help learning, using Adobe licensing update Q&A

3 Cisco WebEx Wake Forest Reynolda is the first campus with WebEx licenses for all. Meeting Center - accessible from mobile devices: Android and Apple Training Center - virtual breakout groups, polling and attentiveness monitoring, feedback tools Event Center - best suited for presentations Support Center - remote support Note: only the host needs a license, so this can be used with external groups!

4 Google Apps, features Docs: If you use Word / Track-Changes for collaborative documents, you dont know what you are missing. Dont think of Google Docs as a basic word processor; think of it as the most powerful collaboration tool ever invented. Sites: powerful, easy website creation with fine grained access control if you want it. Google Mail: Do you know about keyboard shortcuts? Labels? Hangouts on Air: Stream video to the world, for free, and archive to YouTube after. Google Moderator: Consider using this for big events, rather than just using a microphone on the floor. Forms. (See also Qualtrics.) Drive. Up to 5 Gb of synced storage.

7 Corel Suite Corel is the alternative to Adobe recommended by the Committee on Information Technology. Paint Shop Pro is a great photo editor. Visual Studio Pro is a better video editor than Premiere for 97% of campus. Full featured, easier to learn, and performs better on mainstream computers. Premiere is now targeted at full-time professionals running really serious hardware. Corel Draw is a very strong alternative to Illustrator. Corel Paint. We hear it is good, but would appreciate your assessment. PDF Fusion: good PDF creator and document bundler, but it cannot be used for fillable forms or NSF and NIH proposals. Corel Website Creator: we got it for free, but ignore. Use Dreamweaver CS4 or the free Kompozer for traditional web editing, or perhaps Wordpress or Google Sites.

8 Resources for learning Help.wfu.edu - including tutorials WebEx Support (Cisco online resources) PDC classes. (Corel workshop announcements coming in a couple of weeks; Corel is training the trainers, ITGs, etc., right now.) Collaborative Technologies Team, ITGs for those schools that have them. In the Q&A, we want to discuss how to better connect technology with faculty.
