At our Central Vita-Learn meetings we have discussed trying to compile
training/self-help resources for staff and students: a "virtual help-desk"
if you will. I have been using a shared network folder ("How To") for staff
and students to find basic directions for common tasks. At this point most
are written but we are starting to include some photo documentation as well.
The next step is to get these onto our web pages.
Are others using a similar (or alternative) method for "self help"?
