Frequently Asked Questions

What is Tech-Talk?2018-12-10T20:32:52-05:00

Tech-Talk is an inspirational, educational and motivational learning resource about technology and communications for non-techies.  It’s designed to help everyone at work feel like a hero.

It features three components.

1. Tech-Talk Publication … articles written in-house on: 1) a variety of technology topics (Microsoft, Google, Internet …. Graphics, Video, Social Media, etc.) and 2) communication tips (talking, writing, presenting and more).  The publication is sent out weekly to subscribing organizations, who then forward it to their  respective list(s) of members, users and subscribers.

How do you get the publication? If you want the Tech-Talk newsletter, make sure you’re on the subscribing organization’s list.

 

2. Tech-Talk Database … 967+ technology and communication posts, sorted by category and skill level, available 24 x 7 x 365 to answer problems and suggest innovative solutions.  The database is dynamic with the new publication articles added each week, along with maintaining a constant vigilance to ensure every item is up-to-date and current.

How do you get access to the database?  Go to Tech-Talk.com. Click on Member Login. Use the Subscribing Organization’s username and password.

 

3. Tech-Talk Mobile App … Every user of a subscribing organization can download the mobile app and have this handy content at their finger tips throughout the day. It’s provided as part of the subscription.  Both Android and Apple platforms are supported. The app is available for smartphones and tablets.

How do you get the mobile app? Find Tech-Talk in the App Store (Apple) or Google Play (Android Marketplace). You will have a one-time login required. Use the subscribing organization’s username and password.


TIP:  There are NO individual user accounts … each subscribing organization has ONE username / password for everyone to use.


 

How is Tech-Talk different from LinkedIn Learning?2023-06-20T08:55:34-04:00

Tech-Talk and LinkedIn Learning are complementary products. LinkedIn Learning offers a vast array of courses on all types of topics for individuals looking for training. Tech-Talk, on the other hand, pushes out micro-training on a singular topic each week to introduce ideas which most folks did not know existed.

  • This new and freshly-written material feeds our specialized, up-to-date database of 2000+articles and videos, helping individuals be more effective in the workplace.
  • Our corresponding mobile app gets more people engaged and allows immediate access to solve workforce challenges.

Tech-Talk pricing is pleasingly different as well.  We want Tech-Talk to be a household name in the workplace … and a client forever … so the cost reflects that. We work with you to find a price that slips easily into your budget so that hardly even notice it.

How do you handle authentication?2018-12-10T20:34:24-05:00

We work closely with each institution to ensure authentication meets your requirements. We also provide you with an auto-login link that you use throughout your website so that users click just once to discover this gift you’ve offered.  We also make it easy for students, alumni and patrons to login from wherever they are online.

Can alumni and patrons use the Tech-Talk Database at work?2018-12-10T20:34:49-05:00

Yes, these workplace skills (technology and communications) are available to your organization’s students, alumni and patrons for as long as the Tech-Talk license is active. People can log into the Database from any online location or look it up on their Mobile App.

Is each article and video unique or are there multiple articles on the same topic?2018-12-10T20:35:12-05:00

Every week a new and current article is written (in-house) on a unique topic.  There are no duplicates.  Occasionally there will be an article that adds more detail to a previous one or shows another slant for using a particular feature.  When that occurs we refer the reader to the companion article as well.

What Collegiate Students Say

“What I liked, and learned most, from Tech-Talk this month was the importance and proper use of graphics. Nowadays a lot of students use graphics knowingly and unknowingly! A fun fact I learned was the correct pronunciation of the word ‘GIF’!  I was saying it wrong the whole time. I think a lot of students share my lack of knowledge and will be excited to learn about graphics.”

~ Randi, a Warner University Student

“My favorite Tech-Talk so far is “Make Your Key Message POP”. I like to play around with text and photos in PowerPoint a lot and I felt I’ve gotten everything I could from it, but I didn’t know I could do things like that! It’s a fun way to keep my presentation clean and still catch an eye.”

~ Brooke Ann, a University Student

“In the communications tip on ‘How Can I Make You Smile’, the emphasis was on positive communications and the effect that it could have. This is very relevant, especially in the college environment where you are running into people every day.”

~ A University Student Review

"One the Tech-Talks I reviewed would appeal to a majority of students in this day and age.  This is the one on media and safe sources for background music. With a lot of individuals making YouTube videos, this is very useful because it helps prevent copyright issues and avoid problems."

~ A University Student Review
