One of Idealware’s most popular signature topics is back for 2019!
From Idealware's website: Nearly every small nonprofit has a staffer who stumbled into being the go-to techie around the office. They often have little training—just a good head for technology and the patience to deal with the many issues that come up in a busy office.
Are you one of these “accidental techies”? This course is designed to give you a boost—in knowledge, resources, and confidence—to help you embrace your role and thrive as an intentional techie. Over three weeks, we’ll show you how to get through the big and small IT issues that most nonprofits face.
Throughout this course, you will:
- Familiarize yourself with the basics of your organization’s infrastructure.
- Learn the fundamentals of networking and backing up shared files.
- Discover best practices of an effective software administrator.
- Explore new software options.
- Review security risks and safety principles.
- Discuss technology planning and how to help organizations get what they need from their technology resources.
- Learn how to keep IT responsibilities from taking over your job.
