New technology workshops offered as part of the G.O.L.D. Ruby certificate

Milne Technology Instructor Steve Dresbach is now offering technology workshops as part of the Geneseo Opportunities for Leadership Development (GOLD) Ruby Certificate.

The Ruby Certificate gives students the opportunity to learn better research skills, effectively evaluate internet resources and use information in a more proficient manner.

Mr. Dresbach will be teaching some new optional courses in the use of audio, video and templates in PowerPoint presentations, creating newsletters and advanced formatting in Word, and finding audio and video clips on the internet. Classes in Excel will be offered by Laura Cook, Manager, Instructional Technologies, from the Computing and Information Technology office.

Completion of eight workshops, four required and four elective courses, will earn students the Ruby Certificate. In addition to becoming better researchers, students will be able to demonstrate to future employers their skill at finding, evaluating and using reliable information.

Students can register online for GOLD workshops or contact Steve Dresbach at x5063 for more information on the new course offerings
