ITDS Student Workers

Instructional Technology & Desktop Services (ITDS) is just one of the many departments within the Division of Information Technology. ITDS currently employs a large number of students to provide technology support for WCU faculty, staff, and students. Students hired to work on the ITDS Team have the opportunity to develop skills in the following areas: hardware troubleshooting, software troubleshooting, customer service, classroom technology, software training, marketing/social media, and networking. Regardless of your technology knowledge base or your major, we seek students that are enthusiastic about learning new technology skills.

The ITDS teams that currently employ student workers are:

Technology Commons

This team employs them most student workers. The Technology Commons team provides technology support, equipment for checkout, software/technology training, and Apple/Dell purchasing assistance. Student workers on this team offer direct client support at the service desk, while also completing major repairs in the repair center.

Students in this area work closely with the Instructional Computing full-time staff on classroom technology support. They will assist with keeping classroom technology working properly as well as assist with calls for technology problems within a classroom. Beyond supporting the classrooms, students will assist with installation of equipment in the carts and ceilings.
