NEW CSU Interactive Map: This session will start off with discovering the new information contained in the CSU Interactive Map.

Unlike other classes, we want you to bring your cell phone, tablet or laptop (if you can connect to the internet with them), for use during class to navigate our CSU campuses. Have you ever wanted to create a virtual tour and have it available to anyone, anywhere from a cell phone, tablet or laptop/desktop computer? [for free], or find a CSU office, program or other resource you’ve never been to? It’s pretty easy to do with the new CSU Interactive Map. For extra credit, you can learn how to imbed the map on your homepage.
Goals and Target Audience:
Suggested for Program Admins, Information Desk Staff, Web Content Developers, Building Proctors, Conference Organizers, and anyone who wants to help connect others to the great resources and locations at CSU.
