    I like to learn to be more efficient in searching the web, especially for research topics. I'd like to improve my skills in using more advanced data analysis tools in Excel. Learning about networking and how to get all of my electronic devices to properly sync with one another might be useful as well. 
    adobe photoshop 
    How to use Excel more proficiently and how to fix problems encountered with my computer. 
    Would certainly be interested in learning to create my own webpages, learn HTML and such, but it isn't a huge priority. 
    I think I'm pretty much set for what I currently need to do on computers... I'm sure things will come up in vet school that I don't currently know how to do and will need to improve, but I don't know yet what those may be. 
    More work w/ spreadsheets to get a better idea on how to insert detailed formulas. Power point presentations- I have no experience w/ creating web pages (only if necessary). I have used dreamweaver to make a website before, but that's it. 
    I would like to review/learn how to insert and modify figures, images, and tables in Word; use different features of PowerPoint; create Spreadsheets and use features in Excel; create my own Web page (which I have never done before); and upload recorded lectures and deal with sound files in general. 
    Writing programs 
    I wish I was better with graphics, especially for presentations and to be included in word files. Also spreadsheets. 
    I feel I am proficient in the tasks I have had to perform and have no particular techniques I wish to learn, though I am open to learning new skills and pick them up quickly. 
    To manipulate spreadsheets with more ease 
    I would love to learn more about website development as well as more difficult applications of Excel or spreadsheets. 
    Microsoft Excel & powerpoint 
    Basic web page creation, basic troubleshooting, basic programming. 
    Programming (C++, Lenux, Access, Java) 
    Get better with creating web pages Using a PDA and formatting it with my computer to keep up with calendar dates, etc... 
    how to create/maintain a website how to troubleshoot problems with programs or generally with my computer 
    I would like to be more proficient with spreadsheets! 
    I would like to learn more about networking as well as more about using Powerpoint. 
    I know enough to survive. I don't really know what else I would like to know. 
    Power Point 
    I'd like to improve my use of spreadsheets and web design. 
    I would like to be more proficient in using all Microsoft programs, especially Excel and PowerPoint (each as a whole). I would also like to learn how to better utilize rows, columns, pictures, charts, etc in Word documents. 
    How to make graphs and use functions and formulas on spreadsheets. Also would love to know how to freate a web page. 
    I would like to learn how to better search the web in a fashion that does not waist time and energy. 
    more on spreadsheets, how to create web pages 
    more in-depth use of excel, esp. for advanced stats; more web page design; how to use a apple/mac's operating system; about virus detection/elimination, debugging computers 
    I would like to learn more about creating websites. 
    I would like to learn how to manage my computer better and use spreadsheets more effectively, and use the internet better.

    I think it's nice for instructors to have course info online, but should still teach the material in class as well. 
    For the CVM to incorporate more technology into students' learning, improved email service is necessary. The current CVM email lacks features and has too small of an amount of available space available. Such improvements could greatly modernize and improve education for students.
