Support & Repair

Tech Talk Tuesday

Tech Talks are back at a brand new day and time! Join us for our regular series of workshops designed to help you discover new tech and make the most of the tech you already have. Join us for demos and tutorials on hardware, software, apps, and products that might just change your world.

Who: Open to all
When: Tuesdays at 2:30 p.m. (each lasting 45–60 minutes, including Q&A and personal consulting)
Where: Shapiro Library | First Floor

We encourage advance registration, but drop-ins are welcome too! Bring your own device if you want, but that’s not required either; we can provide 1:1 tech consults or helpful how-to resources so you can DIY with confidence.

New workshops are posted regularly, so check back often!

January 29: Back It Up

The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to discover easy ways to gain peace of mind with backup basics for all those important things on your computer: school, work, photos, music. We'll cover a range of backup processes and options for both Mac and PC, including the powerful and secure file storage tools available as part of your standard U-M computing services.

February 5: Phishing & Suspicious Email

Criminals can use phishing, spam, and other malicious email to gain access to your personal and financial information, as well as sensitive university information and access to U-M resources. In this Tech Talk, learn why phishing email scams matter, what to watch for, and what to do if you think you've been a target.

February 12: Catfish (& Other Hazards of Online Dating)

Just in time for V-Day, join us for the essential dos and don'ts of making friends on the Internet. Whether you're using an online dating service or expanding your social media network, learn to spot the warning signs of predators, scam artists, and identity thieves. Knowing the "red flags" will allow you to feel less suspicious and more confident when you hit it off with someone new.

February 19: iCloud & Your Apple ID

With iCloud, you always have what's most important to you on whatever Apple device you have in hand. And it's all done automatically. Just like that. Join us to get answers to all your questions about what iCloud is and what it can do for you. We'll explore iCloud.com, and you will learn how to sync and backup your devices, manage your photo library, and set up Family Sharing. Plus, we'll cover some cool hidden tips and tricks!

February 26: Storage & Collaboration Tools

Learn about three powerful and secure file storage and collaboration tools—Google Drive, Box, and OneDrive. Manage, share, and simultaneously edit files with Drive—one of the many core tools provided by U-M Google to faculty, staff, and students. Store, edit, share, and collaborate on just about any type of file with U-M Box.
