What is InfoCentral Ninja?

InfoCentral Ninja used to be called STA+ (Student Technology Assistance Plus) but changed the name when our service department merged with InfoCentral. We are a group of student assignees dedicated to helping faculty, students and staff in their technology and Audio Visual needs and can actually go to where the need exists.  We assist people in setting up technology for presentations. We create video and audio files for customers as well as duplicate CDs and DVDs for large or small projects. InfoCentral Ninja also help people understand the software they use on a daily basis to complete their work.  The question we ask is, “What do you want to be able to do?” and we seriously want to be able to help you become more self-sufficient in the world of technology.

What do we do?

We provide training one-on-one or in groups for all Microsoft Office applications and related software.  Training for PowerPoint, Word, Excel, Access, and Outlook is what we do best.  We also train people how to electronically scan photographs and incorporate graphics into Web pages or PowerPoint presentations. We help faculty create and maintain their on-line course material through My.Courses and eCollege/eCompanion.  We help faculty learn how to use their laptop computers more productively.  We help faculty, students and staff learn how to use the available technology to become more efficient and creative.  It is also our job to perform Audio Visual (AV) setups and training for faculty, students and staff.  We also will move AV equipment around campus when needed.
