We are well into the Spring 2015 quarter and want to remind everyone of the following UCSF Collaborative Learning Environment (CLE) and multimedia support resources available through the UCSF Library and Learning Technologies Group.
The Learning Technologies Group had a great time with the 2014 Tech Clinics and we were able to help with CLE and multimedia projects along the way! Here are a few examples of UCSF projects that faculty and staff brought to the Tech Clinics: CLE gradebook questions, Articulate module development, Media@UCSF integration in CLE courses, online exam review for finals and midterms, and we even helped support a UCSF podcast!
2015 is going to be even better and you can register for an upcoming Tech Clinic today! Continue reading

It is very important to understand the new library method for file management, because all of our workstations in the Tech Commons area are “locked down” and files are erased upon reboot! Continue reading
This post is part one of a two-part series on What’s New at the UCSF Tech Commons.
Mavericks has arrived at the UCSF Library! Stop by the Tech Commons (CL-240) on the second floor of the UCSF Library and try out Apple’s newest operating system, Mavericks. This is a great opportunity to try out the operating system before upgrading your work or personal computers (PS Mavericks* is free!).
Tech Commons staff have been testing Mavericks and discovering new features and applications that members of the UCSF community will be excited about. Members of the Tech Commons & Desktop Services (Benjamin Stever) and Learning Technologies Group (Dylan Romero) have collaborated to identify our top five new features with the biggest bang for their buck and listed them below (in no order of importance): Continue reading
