You can now use your UMN Internet ID Password for All Google Services (no more "Google Mobile Password!)
In order to streamline access to University Google Apps, users no longer will need to use a separate Google Desktop/Mobile Client password to access University Google Apps from a mobile device or email client such as Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail. The change goes into effect beginning Tuesday, July 7, and applies only to University Google accounts.

WebEx: polling, checklists, and a "Centers" comparison http://buff.ly/1fFGxRt #ExtQuickBytes
Polling is a great way to engage attendees during a WebEx session. You can create, edit, and save a poll using the Polling panel within a WebEx session. I think it's best to set them up ahead of time, save the files (.atp) to your computer and load them up before or during your meeting.

Technology Learning for Extension Staff
Introduction
"Quick Bytes" are bite-sized introductions to a wide variety of today's technology. A new Quick Byte unit will be posted each Thursday. You will finish each quick and fun unit having seen each technology with your own eyes, learned some potential uses for it, and knowing where to get more information. Often there will be an activity to allow for hands-on exploration. Comments and discussion are strongly encouraged!
