Good Morning Everyone,

SU Tips and Tricks

New Google Drive Feature - Suggested Edits
Last week Google announced the inclusion of a highly requested feature, suggested edits (like track changes). This new edit mode makes any changes redlines that can then be approved by the document owner. Very handy feature for collaborating on documents.  Check out the link for more information

Free Blackboard Collaborate Training
If you have ever wanted to learn more about Blackboard Collaborate and everything it offers, this course is for you!  Blackboard is offering FREE Collaborate training courses to anyone at SU.  All you have to do is follow the instructions found at the link! Take advantage of this great training and learn how to host online meetings and classes today!
Pixlr - In Browser Image Editor
This web app is a powerful image editor that lives in the cloud.  You can create new images as well as edit images you upload to Pixlr. The best part? It links into Google Drive so that you can open any images in your Drive with Pixlr for quick fixes and edits. Lot's of the tools found in paid software are included here for free! Go ahead and give it a try.
If you don't need all those bells and whistles, try out Pixlr Express.
