What will you learn in the Institute on Technical Skills for Online Event Production?

This institute is for CSSW alumni who are interested in learning what goes on behind the scenes to manage the technology of online events, including online classes.  In the course, participants will learn how to prepare for live online events, how to run the technology for live online events, how to write reports sharing data on live online events, and how to provide technical support to anyone experiencing technical issues.  They will also learn how to edit pages in the Canvas learning management system.  This institute combines asynchronous homework online, as well as three live 2-hour webinar sessions in Adobe Connect where you gain hands-on practice as you learn.

The professional skills that participants develop in the institute may be relevant to professional roles conducting virtual training, running live online events, creating digital content, and more.  In addition to developing these skills, successful completion of the institute may qualify participants to apply for part time positions with the Online Campus as Live Support Specialists.

Participants who successfully complete the institute will receive a letter certifying completion of the course, a digital badge to share their accomplishment on online platforms, and they can add their participation and skills to their resumes.  There is no fee for the course, but students must provide their own computers, webcams, headsets, and hard-wired Internet connections. If you have questions about the technical requirements, please feel free to email info.csswtechinstitute@gmail.com.

Please note, applications for the Live Support Specialist role are by invitation only (invitations sent after the institute) and successful completion of the institute doesn’t guarantee an invitation to apply.

Whether you are interested in applying for a position with CSSW’s online campus, or you’re just looking to learn a new skill set, you are welcome to attend!
