Public Tools
  • Wordle – Create word clouds from word lists or even papers or publications.
  • Google URL Shortener – Although not specifically a VCCS service – it is available for anyone from Google – it can be really useful. The only thing to keep in mind is that to use it, you make the resource publicly searchable (although not publicly accessible).  For best results, log into myRCC, then Gmail first, then go here.  This will allow you to save a list of all URLs you have associated with shortened addresses and keep track of how many people have used the shortened links.
RCC Tools
  • Accessing the VPN procedure– remote access to RCC network
  • myPassword – Instructions on myPassword user profile setup [PDF]
  • Panopto
Tanberg Content Service (TCS)
