1 12 Months of Technology Campaign Presented to: NLIT Lara James Web Developer Knoxville, TN June 2, 2009

2 2Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name The purpose of the campaign… To deliver free, 1-hour information sessions to better acquaint ORNL staff with new and exciting technologies that are relatively new to the Lab. Find a “champion” for each Directorate to help promote both attending the sessions, and using these new technologies. Provide each Directorate a particular date for training. The Office of the CIO is covering the cost for this campaign.

3 3Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name Original Topics vs. Current Topics Portal in general IM & Desktop Video Collaboration Search Engine Office 2007 / Vista SharePoint Document Library User created workflow Live Meeting Mobile Technologies MySites and blogs VoiceOver IP Expertise Location Unified Messaging January: Live Meeting February: Office 2007 & Vista March: Macs in the ORNL Environment April: SharePoint Basics May: SharePoint Advanced June: MySites and Blogs July: IM & Desktop Video Collaboration August: Mobile Technologies September: Cyber Security at ORNL October: TBD November: TBD December: Make-up sessions for past topics

4 4Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name Marketing Strategy Have Directorate-level POCs (our “champions”) disseminate announcements to their directorate staff. Advertise announcements in ORNL Today (our on-line newsletter). Create posters that nicely paraphrase the topic of the month and place these in strategic places around the Lab (e.g., Main Street, Cafeteria, SNS, etc.)

5 5Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name Marketing Strategy (cont’d) After each current topic session – close with talking about the next topic – inviting them back! Post 12 Months of Technology SharePoint Site URL on everything (posters, handouts, announcements, etc.).

6 6Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name 12 Months of Technology SharePoint Site Provide a SharePoint site that: – Gives them a brief introduction to the campaign. – Provides a list of technical topics that will be offered. – Provides a calendar of sessions. – Provides a link to each session incorporating links to electronic copies of handouts, introduction slides, and detailed documentation that covers everything that was discussed during the session.

7 7Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name Presentation Content Collect information and advice from ITSD SMEs Use existing IT University participant guides to help with content and flow – IT University is an ORNL site that provides a variety of ways to receive training in IT technologies implemented at ORNL. QUICK Source © Guides

8 8Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name Presentation Style Brief Introduction Slides 95% of the session is a demo of using the products. – Live Meeting required many ITSD staff to assist with joining and participating in Live Meetings. Handouts – QUICK Source © handouts were provided for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and SharePoint. – Instructor-designed handouts were provided at each session which contained some basic guidance, and links to important information. Each topic has a taped session and is posted on the SharePoint Site.

9 9Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name January Topic: Live Meeting Attendance: 366 Staff Sessions: 18 Locations: 7 various sites

10 10Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name Live Meeting Lessons Learned Pre-testing issues: – Found that even new systems were not configured with some necessary default settings. – Not all systems had the same version of Live Meeting. Live Meeting Outlook Add-In – Found that not all systems had the necessary Outlook add-in. These were resolved on a case-by-case basis. Phone Bridge – Bruce Johnston (ITSD audio/video expert) developed instructions to configure a Live Meeting session using the ORNL conference bridge.

11 11Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name Live Meeting Lessons Learned (cont’d) Macs and Linux users have limited functionality. The severity of limitation depends upon the browser (Safari vs. Firefox). Found that Mondays and Fridays were consistently poorly attended; merged some Directorates and offered sessions Tuesday – Thursday. This campaign was originally called “12 Months of Training.” Due to some feedback after this first session, it was decided to change the name to “12 Months of Technology” to better reflect the nature of these 1-hour information sessions.

12 12Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name February Topic: Office 2007 & Vista Attendance: 318 Staff Sessions: 14 Locations: 7 various sites

13 13Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name Office 2007 & Vista Lessons Learned Some Outlook 2007 features may be different depending upon the Exchange server that the employee resides on (e.g., Out of the Office Assistant). The many requests to upgrade to Office 2007 on a Windows XP system helped to push this option into production.

14 14Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name March Topic: Macs in the ORNL Environment Attendance: 75 Staff Sessions: 5 Locations: 2 various sites

15 15Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name Macs in the ORNL Environment Lessons Learned Some of the these training classes turned into “gripe sessions”. We received many complaints on “Why are we forced to use Microsoft products?” Received many suggestions that ORNL IT should offer support for mail clients besides Entourage (e.g., Thunderbird, Mac Mail, Opera). Should have “polled” the Mac community on what they would like to learn more about during this session.

16 16Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name April Topic: SharePoint Basics Attendance: 224 Staff Sessions: 11 Locations: 7 various sites

17 17Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name SharePoint Basics Lessons Learned Many left with a “glazed” look on their faces. Sent out a survey. MOST comments were very favorable – but also that it was a difficult topic if you have not been using the software.

18 18Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name May Topic: SharePoint Advanced Attendance: 130 Staff Sessions: 10 Locations: 7 (at various sites)

19 19Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name SharePoint Advanced Lessons Learned Much lower attendance. More advanced users attending the sessions. Perhaps the staff is getting tired of SharePoint topics – need to switch up the order.

20 20Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name Attendance at a Glance

21 21Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name Sessions Have Generated Interest/Work! Polled Tier 1 and Tier 2 Desktop support staff: – Large number of orders for cameras from the Live Meeting sessions. – Large number of requests for upgrading their system from Windows XP to Vista. – Our Mac expert saw an increase in calls from users asking about Live Meeting, Entourage upgrades, etc. Personally received many requests to come speak to smaller groups individually, including Division-level staff meeting. Personally received many requests to come speak to smaller groups individually, including Division-level staff meeting. Received many comments on how glad they were that ITSD was offering these classes – that it was of great benefit.

22 22Managed by UT-Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy Presentation_name What’s next? This summer brings the remaining migration of Exchange 2003 mail users to Exchange This could peak interest again in Office Continue to work with the on-site training group so that together, we can develop the most robust training program possible.
