What We Do

Software Training for Students (STS) is a free student-to-student technology training service from DoIT Academic Technology. Our program helps UW-Madison students learn practical technology skills from their peers in a comfortable, low-stress student-to-student format.

We offer hands-on learning through workshops taught by our student trainers, personalized technology training and support via 1-on-1 appointments, and tailor-made custom training workshops for instructors, student orgs, RA’s, or small groups of students interested in new skills for class or personal projects.

Topics we’re currently supporting include PhotoshopIllustrator, InDesign, Premiere ProAuditionExcelRPythonIntro To ProgrammingHTML, CSS, and JavaScriptWordPress, and more!

If you have a suggestion for a topic you’d like to see us cover,  let us know.

All services provided by STS are available to any UW-Madison student, free of charge!
