The first Tech Tips Live! session was Jan. 27 and delivered via Zoom webconferencing by Shelley Troyer, Information Technology Assistance Center. There were 43 participants in the session. This session covered Zoom topics that you might not be familiar with, such as co-hosting, breakout sessions, and running a webinar.
All Tech Tip Live! sessions are recorded and on the Tech Tips Live! website. A schedule of upcoming sessions is also on the website.
If the offered sessions do not fit your schedule, please contact the KSIS training coordinator, Fred Darkow, at email@example.com to request additional classes. Attendees will be notified if a session is canceled and will be asked to register for an alternative training session.
When sending e-mail to multiple recipients, consider using the “blind carbon copy” (Bcc:) option. Posting individual e-mail addresses in the Bcc area eliminates the long list of e-mail addresses that the viewer wades through to get to the body of the e-mail and makes for a more professional looking e-mail.
Other benefits include:
Avoid “Reply All”. If the list of recipients is very long, using the Bcc option can help prevent individuals from accidentally choosing “Reply All” and e-mailing the entire list rather than the original e-mail author.
