Progress Report--Microsoft Office 2003 Lynchburg College Tutorials
Murray, Tom
Association of Small Computer Users in Education (ASCUE), 37th, Myrtle Beach, SC, June 6-10, 2004
For the past several years Lynchburg College has developed Microsoft tutorials for use with academic classes and faculty, student and staff training. The tutorials are now used internationally. Last year Microsoft and Verizon sponsored a tutorial web site at http://www.officetutorials.com. This website recognizes ASCUE members for their wonderful efforts in spreading the tutorials throughout higher and K-12 education. Because of this effort, the tutorials became a 2003 Microsoft Model Professional Development Award recipient. Since our last meeting, the Office 2003 tutorials have been created, and are available, through the website. One of our ASCUE members, Bernadette Ortiz-Brewster, is translating the tutorials into Spanish. Karen Fraser of Hendrix College, Arkansas is MACing the tutorials. Several other ASCUE members have also published tutorials, from their institutions, on this website. Currently, a Microsoft Producer tutorial is being created. As this is being written, the tutorials are being considered by the National Forum on Information Literacy, the Department of the Navy Information Literacy Toolkit, the Virginia Department of Education, and the Teaching, Learning, Technology Roundtable. This presentation will furnish an update on all of these initiatives, as well as some others, which are "unfolding" at this time. [For complete proceedings, see ED490093.]
