Accidental Techie: How to Support Your Nonprofit Without an IT Background
November 7: Hardware Infrastructure Basics
Computers, printers, phones, routers—there are a lot of gadgets that can turn glitchy. During this session, you will learn the basics about the hardware in a typical office and review common troubleshooting techniques to keep them up and running. You’ll also learn what you need to know to network computers, keep them connected, and reliably back up files.
November 14: Managing Software and Security
How do you decide what software to choose when there are hundreds of options, each with their own unique features? And once you’ve chosen a software package, how do you manage it so that your organization gets what it needs and is protected from security threats? You’ll get answers to these questions and more by reviewing frameworks to choose and administer your organization’s software.
November 21: The Human Side of Technology
IT isn’t just IT. A big part of the job is working directly with people—both to fix small problems and undertake long-term planning. In this last session, you’ll develop strategies for leading large-scale technology projects and pass on tips from our own in-house IT expert on the best ways to work one-on-one with your colleagues.
