We are here to help!

Welcome back! Stop by our office to find out how we can help make your semester a success. We offer PowerPoint assistance, teleconferencing, graphic design, studio production, printing and scanning.

Video Teleconferencing

Our office offers standards-based video teleconferencing in our 25-seat CIS studio. You can connect with up to 3 other remote participants from our studio. On-site teleconferences allow for multiple cameras, inputs, and displays to be used during the event.

Teleconferencing outside of our facility is possible with the use of a computer, a webcam, and free downloadable software from Cisco. Such events are limited to point-to-point calls without the aid of additional cameras or auxiliary devices. User account management and event scheduling is handled through CIS Media Production. Checkout/delivery of equipment (if necessary) is handled through CIS Classroom Support. Contact us for additional details.

Please contact Jess Price at x5433 to set up your conference.

Adding Images to a Document

If you have a file that is in one of several standard graphic formats (like JPEG, GIF, PICT, etc.), use the Insert menu/Picture/From-file and select your file. The image will appear on your document with handles. To resize image put curser on corner, hold Shift and drag photo to size desired. *If you do not hold shift, this can cause the image to be distorted.

Photos need to be high resolution photos of 150dpi or higher.

blurry pics






High Resolution = No Blur             Low Resolution = Blur

When you insert your image to the PowerPoint, you can check to see if the image will be high quality by checking the poster at 100%. Go to the View tab, click Zoom.

This is what the poster will look like when printed. If the photo is blurry, pixilated or distorted at 100%, it WILL be that way once printed. If it is not high quality you need a new graphic.
