Ask a Trainer – Project Support

Vector illustration of purple dialog boxesStuck on a technology-related project? We can help! In addition to troubleshooting pesky software issues, STS trainers can help you choose the right tools and techniques for the job and provide individualized instruction.

Drop-in Sessions at DesignLab

During the Fall and Spring semesters, STS trainers are available for drop-in consultations from 2:00pm-5:00pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in the DesignLab space in College Library 2250.

In-Person Appointments

For more complex or specific questions, it’s best if we can work with you in person. Students are eligible for up to six 1-hour appointments per academic term (fall, spring, and summer). Extra appointments are possible if you need help on a project related to an academic class.

To set up a one-on-one appointment with an expert Software Training for Students trainer, click the button below. If you need to cancel an appointment, please do so at least 24 hours in advance via the appointment confirmation email sent with the initial scheduling.

While we do our best to help in any way we can, our service does not provide:

  • Production Services: Trainers cannot complete work on behalf of students
  • Production Equipment or Environments: STS equipment and office space is for trainer and instructional use only and not available to students for production purposes
  • Comprehensive Coverage of All Software Topics: While we at STS do our best to help students overcome their software-related challenges, we cannot guarantee an ideal solution to every problem. If our trainers aren’t able to you themselves, they will help find resources that can.
  • Long-Term or Ongoing Support: Students are limited to six 1-hour appointments per academic term (Fall, Spring, Summer). Exceptions may be possible for students who need additional instruction in order to complete work for an academic course, but done at our discretion.

An appointment may be discontinued at the trainer’s discretion if he or she is pressured to provide assistance outside the scope of the our service. Students who repeatedly pressure trainers in this manner may lose their appointment registration privileges.
