COLI Guides, Tutorials, & Documentation

COLI makes available a variety of online tutorial and documentation resources for students, faculty and staff. These enable Canisius users to pick up skills or learn about new applications on their own schedule. Often, we provide links that make finding documentation for a particular web-based resource easy to find, but occasionally we make our own tutorials, training videos, and documentation as the need arises. Many of these resources supplement workshops and consultations, and others serve specific programs or groups of users. Existing resources are periodically updated, new ones are periodically added, and occasionally you may see one that's in the process of creation. If you are interested in having us create a resource for you and others on a particular topic, please let us know

These wiki pages, as with any other in our wiki, are each bookmarkable in your browser.
