SU Technology Tips & Tricks By Devon Taylor

Good Morning Everyone,

I hope that you all had a great weekend!  This week I've got an iOS App for document viewing, quick links in Bb and a great Gmail tip!  As always, if you have any questions, let me know at dtaylor4@su.edu

SU Tips and Tricks

Documents 5 by Readdle
Documents 5 is a great iOS app that allows you to view just about any type of file you may download on your iPad. MS Office documents, PDF's, songs, videos, zip files and more can be opened by this app.  You can even link in your cloud storage accounts for quick access to your online documents.  The best part, it is 100% FREE!  Click the link for more info and a download link.
SU Links Inside Blackboard
Did you miss being able to access all of those non-Bb resources within SU's Bb environment? They're back, and more convenient than ever!  Now, these resources are in one convenient location. If you are logged in, you can access the links by going to the "Links" subtab that is found within the Employee, Faculty and Student tabs.  For a more detailed breakdown, check out the link for a post from the IC Tech Blog.
Gmail - Drag and Drop to Attach and Insert
Did you know that you can drag and drop attachments into your SU email messages? This makes it very easy to add files to your emails. Depending on where you drop the file, it can be inserted inline into the email (perfect for images) or added as an attachment.  Want to learn more, click the link!
