Can I get to the workshops from the StudentLingo website?

* Can I use a screen reader for the workshops?

 Yes. The first slide in each workshop tells you how to open the "ADA Transcripts" tab to get specific instructions to bring up the text transcript of the speaker's presentation. You can also get transcripts at StudentLingo Transcripts.

* Can I take the workshops on a tablet computer or phone?

 Yes. Workshops can be viewed on any device that can connect to the Internet with a web browser. For audio, you will need working speakers or headphone. No microphone is needed.

* I clicked on the Success Workshops link on my GoCSN page but only got a blank page. What so I do?

 We recommend using Chrome, Firefox or Safari web browsers for best results. Internet Explorer uses may see a blank page when they first click on the Workshop ink in GoCSN, but they can just re-load the page, or click once on the website address box and press Enter.

* Are workshops really free for CSN students, faculty and staff?

 Yes. This is another reason for providing the secure link through GoCSN. It allows us to offer convenient access without individual registration screens for each workshop.

Using the Workshops

* Which workshops should I take first?

 Look for the QUICK START list on the workshop page. CSN faculty and staff have identified eight workshops they recommend you to take first. These workshops will be the most helpful if you take them as early as possible in the semester (or even before), but they can still help you any time!

* How long do the workshops take?

 Each workshop will take about 15-20 minutes, depending on how long you want to spend on the interactive activities and quizzes.

^Top

 

* Can I start a workshop and then come back to it later?

 Yes. When you come back to a workshop you have started in the past, it will ask you if you want to start where you left off.
