|Flight Center Under Construction|
For the next three to four weeks, the Flight Center will be undergoing construction. Due to the extent of the construction, there will be limited internet, email and phone service.
Please be advised emails and phone messages may be delayed in being returned. Your patience is appreciated during this time.
|Switchboard Moving to Averett Central|
Effective June 3, the University's switchboard will be managed by Rose Holley and Robbie Hendrix in Averett Central. Currently, the switchboard is housed in the office of institutional advancement and handled primarily by Jennifer Hooper.
Approximately 40 percent of the average calls to the University are transferred from the switchboard to Averett Central. Both Jennifer and Marion Breen will provide backup for the switchboard at peak times as needed.
|Prezi Workshops Offered|
Back by popular demand, Instructional Technologist Kim McMurtry will offer more hands-on Prezi workshops. Get started making Prezi presentations with Prezi Basics at 10 a.m., Tuesday, May 28. Then in Prezi Intermediate at 10 a.m., Tuesday, June 4, learn to add audio and video, collaborate with others online, and embed a presentation in a Moodle course.
Prezi, a cloud-based presentation software, is an alternative to PowerPoint. Its zoomable canvas can allow more nonlinear development of ideas than PowerPoint's slideshow. It also offers real-time online collaboration with up to 10 other people. See the complete workshop schedule and register today by clicking here.
