Always Online @

PowerPoint has long been the staple, go-to software for presentations.  This landscape is changing daily with the introduction of new and feature rich alternatives that can make your presentations a memorable experience for those involved.  I've prepared a list of PPT alternatives that you might want to try out if you are looking to impress your coworkers or students with your tech savviness!  I encourage you to try them all!
Google Keep Adds Location and Time Reminders!
Google Keep, the note taking, list making reminder app extraordinaire now has the ability to remind you based on time or location.  Put your grocery list in Keep, add a location reminder for your favorite grocery store, and Voil√†, your list appears when you are at the store!  Need a reminder of talking points before a big meeting?  Simply put them in Google Keep, set a time reminder for right before you meeting and then wow them with your skills!  Check out the link for more information on this handy tool!

Best wishes to you all during our first week of classes!  Don't hesitate to contact IC if you need any technology related support!
