Have you ever been bogged down with a process and thought, “There’s got to be an easier way to do this,” yet you have no idea where to begin to find the answers? Those of us who are not IT professionals are faced with a giant obstacle called “you don’t know what you don’t know.” Yes, there is probably an easier way to do certain processes, and yes, it’s probably really simple, but it’s hard to apply a solution when we don’t know it exists. However, as the saying goes, even a blind squirrel finds an occasional nut. This series will highlight some of my favorite stumbled-upon technology solutions. They are geared towards campus recreation in higher education, but could easily be applied in other areas.

Nut #1: Google Docs
Nut #2: Using iPads with Google Docs
Nut #3: Useful Apps for iPads
Nut #4: Google Scripts Apps for Google Forms
Nut #5: Create a Self-Grading Quiz

What are your favorite technology solutions?
