New to Griffith and new to computers?


A little preparation before you start study repays itself many times over and makes your University experience easier.  We offer free orientation workshops to help you get started with your studies at Griffith.

You can attend the Introduction to Griffith’s Online Environment workshop which helps you become familiar with Griffith’s intranet and internet environments including accessing the Griffith Portal, Learning@Griffith, using your Griffith email account and more.

In the Basic computing survival skills workshop, you can brush up on computing  skills and learn how a computer works, understand computing terminology, explore the Microsoft Windows environment and get tips to increase efficiency.

If you have any computing related questions take advantage of our Drop-in Sessions (Tuesday 2-4 pm at Nathan and Thursday 10-12 noon at Gold Coast) . No bookings required. Just turn up! You can stay for as little as 5 minutes or the whole session.

Not only can you attend our free computing workshops, you can access Self-help resources for EndNote, Excel, Social Media, Word and PowerPoint. There are also resources for Access, HTML, Dreamweaver and SPSS. This easy to follow guide provides you with links to online training, how to access the software, links to relevant Library material and where to seek assistance when necessary (and more!)
