There are a variety of resources on campus for learning the technical skills you'll need to design and develop a web project, for getting advice on the effective use of the web medium, and for troubleshooting any problems that may arise:
- IT Education Services offers a wide variety of short computer training and education workshops over the course of each semester. The workshops on web design and development are highly recommended for anyone looking for a thorough, systematic introduction to the Dreamweaver, Flash, or Fireworks web development tools. A nominal fee is charged for these workshops, and you do need to register in advance on the ITES web page.
- Knowledge Navigation Center consultants are highly trained in using a variety of web development tools and can help you both with getting started in learning new skills and in helping solve problems you may encounter. The KNC is on the 2nd floor of Hatcher Graduate Library, in the glassed-in area across from the computer terminals. Consultants are available on a walk-in basis: no appointment is necessary.
- ITD: The University of Michigan Information Technology Division consultants can help you with computer questions. Here is a list of ITD sites staffed with consultants. ITD consultants also offer assistance by phone and email. Call (734) 764-HELP or email firstname.lastname@example.org
- The Sweetland Writing Center offers multi-literacy consulting. The staff is trained in using Dreamweaver, FTP, and Photoshop, and in helping students think through how to use the web most effectively as a medium of communication. Students can make appointments with an ML consultant by calling 764-0429; drop-ins are accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis.
