Tech Tip for October

Turboscan images


TurboScan, an app that scans anything from your phone and is able to convert it into a PDF or JPEG.



This is good for capturing handwritten notes, whiteboard brainstorms, or just avoiding an extra trip to find a scanner. The best part is that the adjustable frame will try to compensate for off-putting angles and present it in the best way possible.



 This Tech Tip is brought to you by the Personal and Professional Development Committee of Staff Assembly.

Health Tip for October

A small workout is better than no workout. Thirty minutes a day is recommended, but you could break it up into three, 10-minute sessions. Take a meeting on a walk, do some stretching at your desk, do a set of pushups or planks. Schedule time onto your calendar to get up and walk around and make it a point to move every hour, even if it’s to get up and get some water.
The HRC now offers custom Group Fitness classes, which are great for departments, student groups, or a group of friends!
