Information and Tips


Upcoming slate Trainings

Check the schedule and watch for email messages about the slate trainings on Thursday afternoons at 1:30.

GoToMeeting Note: If you do not have audio when you use the website to connect to the session, make sure you download and run the local GoToMeeting program (client). This may download automatically as you connect to the meeting but is also available at the GoToMeeting website (Install on individual computers). Or, look for the orange/yellow “flower” icon in the computer’s tray area to launch the system. Then, use the meeting code—643832709—when you select Join Meeting.

Public Domain Image Resources

If you need images for your website, refer to the Google Sheet (Excel file) that lists sources for free or low-cost images. Once you click on the link above, you’ll be in a folder named “Photo_Sources.” From there, click on the file named “Photo and Images Sources.

Comments about the image sources are appreciated, so please email any suggestions or notes you’d like to see included in the file to make it more useful to others.

Additional resources will be added to this folder, so check back.

Free Microsoft Office and Office Mobile Available for WVU Employees

Free Microsoft Office & Office Mobile now available for WVU employees
Faculty and staff may now download free Microsoft Office and Office Mobile applications through the University’s Office 365 licensing. This effectively will allow WVU employees to install Microsoft Office on a total of five personal devices and five mobile devices. It also will give users access to the new Outlook for Mac.

For students, ProPlus replaces the free download site for Student Advantage. For employees, this provides the ability to download Office onto personally owned devices. Instructions are at: http://it.wvu.edu/services/office365/proplus
