Windows 7 Coming to Classrooms

Published: 2010-10-27

Windows 7, the newest operating system from Microsoft, has been thoroughly tested by ITS and is currently being deployed throughout Fisher.  Plans are also underway to upgrade the computers in the classrooms to Windows 7 over the winter break and have it ready for use on the first day of classes Winter Quarter 2011.  In addition, we will be upgrading to Windows 7 in the computer labs during the same time period.

While the new image will be similar to the current image being used in the classrooms, we want to invite you to attend the training sessions that are planned to introduce you to the new features that make Windows 7 a superior desktop experience.  If you don’t have Windows 7 on your office computer, you can contact us to start that simple transition as well.

ITS will be offering Windows 7 training courses in October and November. The training sessions offer an opportunity to personally test drive Windows 7 and learn about its new features. Each 90 minute, hands-on training session will be held in 321 Mason Hall.

Each training session will cover the following topics:

  • What's new with the Windows 7 desktop?
  • Start menu overview
  • Taskbar overview
  • Folder views, sorting and searching
  • Using Windows help and support


Sessions Offered:

  • Tuesday, November 16, 10 – 11:30 a.m. 321 Mason Hall
  • Thursday, November 18, 2 – 3:30 p.m. 321 Mason Hall
