Welcome to the IT Training Center!

The IT Training Center offers access to free on-campus and online workshops that focus on business, creative, technology, data and human literacy skills. On-campus and online trainings are available to all FIU faculty and staff while various online resources are available to all FIU students.

We offer our face-to-face workshops in convenient one to two hour sessions in computer training labs on the Modesto Maidique and Biscayne Bay campuses (on-campus workshops are currently unavailable due to COVID-19). They afford meaningful interaction and individual assistance. We also host online webinars using the web conferencing tool Zoom.

Discover all of the workshops available on the university-wide software applications and technologies using the tabs above.

Canvas LMS workshops are available for faculty who want to receive hands-on instruction needed to build, teach, and manage a course.
