Monday, February 5, 2018

The weather in Pennsylvania is cold and dreary this time of year, so why not attend training from your desk or the comfort of your home courtesy of IT Learning and Development? This month we have a diverse offering of courses available via Zoom - from Canvas to Qualtrics - that can be attended online from anywhere. If you prefer to attend training in person, we also have classes scheduled in the Wagner building at University Park with plenty of seats available for registration.

Click any of the session titles below to learn more about the course or to register. If you have any questions, please contact itld@psu.edu.
