UAccess Learning News

In last month's newsletter, we announced that UAccess Learning will be the newest addition to the UAccess family. We are very excited for this addition! We have added a discussion forum for UAccess Learning to the UAccess Community. Feel free to join us to ask questions, get access to videos and sneak peeks as we post them, and stay up to date on the latest.

 

If you're interested in learning even more, Lo Que Pasa featured an article about UAccess Learning. You'll find lots of good nuggets about the project there. 

Tips & Tricks
This month's tip comes from Steve's weekly recap which can be read in it's entirety here. Steve mentioned that he had people come to his office hours asking about information that their bosses needed. Remember that you can get information in Analytics without having to export to Excel by following the steps in this post. You can manipulate the data to show only what you want to see and save that customization for later use. Thanks for the reminder, Steve! What would we do without you?

Add your tips and tricks to any discussion group or on the Tips & Tricks threads and they might be featured in next month's newsletter!
