The eTech iPad Workshops are designed to provide Arts and Sciences faculty, instructors, and staff with information that can help them incorporate the iPad into their teaching, research, and work life. These one-hour brown-bag workshops are held at noon on Tuesdays in the eTech Conference Room in the Bureau of Mines. For all workshops, bring your iPad and please make sure that you know all relevant user names and passwords associated with your device (i.e., Apple ID and password, AS and MyBama user names and passwords, Dropbox, etc.). Workshops will be limited to 10 participants, we will schedule additional workshops by request.
