​​Help and Training

Norco College provides a wide variety of training resources to help students, faculty, and staff become more proficient with computing resources and applications, to facilitate academic and job productivity. Technology workshops are offered through the Professional Development Committee and Staff Professional Development Program. LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com) provides unlimited access to thousands of online training videos on technical and business applications. The Help and Training page contains links to all of these resources, including Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), videos and user guides.


Flyers

Remember that flyers (jpeg, png, pdf, etc.) are essentially images. When you are creating flyers, add alt-text to the flyer in order for the information on the flyer to be accessible to community members with visual impairments. Oftentimes, the easiest way to do this is to include all the verbiage listed on the flyer in the alt-text. Depending on how you're inserting an image (whether by attachment, or directly into the message), the accessibility processes are different. The DRC can provide training if you have questions on how to make your flyer accessible.

Videos

All videos shared in the college community (whether in a class or via email) must be captioned. This allows our deaf and hard of hearing community members to access the information on the video. Here are some resources to help with the captioning of videos:

TechSmith Relay: You will be able to create an account using your RCCD email. Videos can be uploaded to this website and Closed Captioning can be added with ease.  



Emails

If you are inserting images in your emails, please include alternative text by right clicking on the image and selecting “Format Picture”. Next, click on the third icon called “Layout and Properties”. Now click on “Alt Text” and provide a description of what the image is displaying. This allows screen readers to describe the image to an individual with visual impairments.
