Be Connected Series

Connecting IT Staff

Be Connected Weekly Webinar Series

Be Connected is a weekly webinar series hosted by the LTC’s Technology Services Team. Each week during the school year, we dive into a specific technology, infrastructure, and management topic. The first half of the webinar outlines the critical elements of the issue, and the last half is spent in open conversation, allowing IT staff to share experiences, ask questions, and find the targeted support they need for their specific environment.
