The Instructional Design and Technology Roundtable kicks off its fall series with “Tech Tools that Make Life Easy” from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15, in Room 212 of the K-State Student Union.

Join us as we discuss and share tech tools that make our lives easier. We will be looking at software, apps, smartphones and other devices that help us connect, be productive or just have fun. Don't hesitate to bring your own favorites, and don't worry if you don't have any yet!
