Seminar Web site redesigned with new enhancements

Computer Services offers free hands-on training seminars for students, faculty and staff on a variety of computer topics such as Microsoft Office, TUmail, Web authoring tools and Photoshop. Building on the popularity and convenience of browsing and registering for seminars online, the seminar Web site has been redesigned and enhanced with a number of new features.

Seminar listings are now updated on a daily basis. The popular calendar feature that appeared in the back of the printed schedule has been added to the new site. In addition, the seminar registration process has been improved. For example, after you register, you will receive an e-mail confirming your registration or informing you that the seminar is full. If the seminar is full, you will be added to a waiting list. If a cancellation occurs, the person at the top of the waiting list will be automatically registered for the seminar and will receive a confirmation e-mail. In addition, the registration process automatically generates an e-mail notice to your supervisor and sends you a reminder two days before the seminar. Due to these new enhancements, the printed schedule will no longer be distributed.

To view the list of seminar topics and to register online, visit http://seminars.temple.edu.
