Tech Tips

The FLRC has developed a number of software tutorials to help students and faculty with the different multimedia projects used in our foreign language curricula. Hard copies of these tutorials may be found in the Resource Center. Our student workers are very qualified: all are native speakers of the different languages  taught at Lafayette; moreover, each one has been trained as a technology mentor. Feel free to ask our personnel for assistance with either language or technology questions.
