Flashlight 2.0 made its debut at Cal Lutheran on April 1. Two training classes focusing on this new online survey application have been conducted, and some users already are constructing and circulating surveys. This Tech Byte issue serves to remind all CLU employees and students that they can create an account and start using the application right away. More classes will be on the schedule in May; however, anyone wishing assistance sooner may contact the Computer Training Department via email or by telephone at (805) 493-3368.
