New Computer-based Training Courses in Digital Imaging and Web Development
By Dr. Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, Student Computing Services Manager
Several new courses have been added to the SkillSoft Webserver that should prove beneficial for those interested in digital imaging and web development. An entire suite of courses dealing with Adobe tools, FrontPage 2002, Webpage design, and Macromedia products is now available.
Adobe courses include training in the following products:
These applications have been available to UNT faculty, students, and staff on campus through our ongoing contract with Adobe for several years (there is a purchase fee involved; you should see your network manager for details about where these applications are available in your area).
Macromedia application courses include instruction in:
UNT has all of the Macromedia MX courses available via contract (once again there is a fee and interested parties should contact their network manager).
FrontPage 2002 and more . . .
A large group of courses covering the new FrontPage 2002 have also been added. For complete newbies to Web development, several courses providing basic instruction in Web design concepts, simple HTML, and other web tools are now loaded on the server. A complete listing of course titles and descriptions for all these new offerings is given below.
These courses are currently available only via the SkillSoft server. However, within the next two weeks instructional Cd-Roms with the Adobe courses, the Macromedia courses, the FrontPage courses, and the basic Web design concepts will be created and made available. Requests for these CD-ROMs can be emailed to Claudia Lynch in the Computing Center, and she will get the CDs you as soon as they are completed.
The SkillSoft Website contents located at www.unt.edu/smartforce/ do not yet reflect these new course offerings but an updated listing of the server contents and available CDs will be prepared in the next few weeks. Users will also notice that some of the older and out-of-date courses have been removed from the server.
Here is a listing of all new SkillSoft courses and a brief description when necessary (remember these courses are listed on the server in alphabetical order):

These new course offerings should be a great starting off point for enhancing job skills, classroom skills, and creative endeavors for the UNT community! Any questions regarding these new courses should be directed to Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, the UNT SkillSoft administrator.
