Where can I turn for help when I want to start using a new technology tool (e.g., Course Site, Internet audio streaming)?
Contact Holly or Judd (as appropriate) to set up a one-on-one consultation in your office.

I am already using Course Site (or another technology tool) in my courses and I want to augment my use of it.  Who can help?
Contact Holly or Judd to make an appointment to discuss your situation.

I want my students to create a webpage or a video for a class project. Who can assist them with this?
Holly or Judd can discuss the details of the project with you and get you in touch with the LTS group best able to help your students. The same is true if you are the one who wants to create the webpage or produce the video.

A technology tool that I have been using is not working at all or as I expected. Who can solve the problem?
The Help Desk (8-HELP [84357] or helpdesk@lehigh.edu) should be your first choice, as Holly and Judd may be away from their desks and not be able to immediately respond to your email/voicemail.  You can also submit a instructional technology trouble ticket at www.lehigh.edu/help if you would prefer.

This is all very nice, but my computer just crashed. Where should I turn?
There are two teams of people available to assist you: the Help Desk and your Desktop Computing Consultants:

Help Desk
The LTS Help Desk is the single point of contact for assistance with computing, library, and telephone services questions for faculty, students, and staff. Contact the help desk via telephone (758-HELP), or e-mail (helpdesk@lehigh.edu). Help desk hours are Monday-Thursday: 8:00 am-10:00 pm, Friday: 8:00 am-5:00 pm, Saturday: 1:00 pm-5:00 pm, and Sunday: 1:00 pm-10:00 pm.  You can always submit a desktop computing help ticket at www.lehigh.edu/help and it will be responded to on the next business day.

The help desk webpage (https://lts.lehigh.edu/about/student-and-general-services-team-lts-help-desk) is a good resource for answering your technology questions. The Computing, Network, and Media webpage (https://lts.lehigh.edu/services) is another good place to search.

Desktop Computing Consultants
Desktop computing consultants are assigned to each college to provide support for your Lehigh-related computing needs. They provide help with networks, desktop management, and computer training.
