provides UNC Law faculty and students with
access to hundreds of course modules and thousands of video tutorials on a
variety of technology skills and software programs. The database divides its content
into three general categories: business, creative, and technology. Within each
of these categories, you will find tutorials on a variety of
topics. For example, students interested in mastering the more advanced
features and functions in Excel can take courses in the essential features,
formulas and functions, and managing and analyzing data. Each program is
usually equipped with video tutorials and assignments that help the user to
develop and hone their new skills.
The database also offers “Learning
Pathways,” which are series of courses designed to help users develop
specific skillsets. Topics included in the Learning Pathways series include
digital photography, web design, basic computer programming, and the Adobe
software suite. There are also specialized Learning Pathways on project
management, small business management, and web development, among others.
Law students preparing to enter practice will benefit from
the variety of courses offered on the Microsoft
Office software programs, which includes trainings on Teams, Excel,
PowerPoint, Word, OneNote, and Outlook. These trainings will equip students to
utilize the programs’ more advanced features and functions in practice. For
example, the advanced training in Word provides students with a foundation in
document styles that can be directly translated into their legal writing. Likewise,
as more and more firms adopt Microsoft Teams or similar software programs for workplace communication and project management, students will find these
tutorials provide them with a solid foundation in using those programs to efficiently
manage larger client issues and cases.
