Good afternoon to all CIS users.  
This is the first edition of Nebraska Career Information System's NEW 
e-Newsletter.  We are developing this newsletter as a way to keep you 
updated on improvements and changes to CIS.
In future additions we will be providing you with CIS Tips and Tricks, 
career education information and MORE!!

 You may have noticed that IDEAS has received a face lift.  Now, instead 
of presenting a list of questions for users to answer, one question at a 
time is presented.  Also, IDEAS is now available in Spanish.  To use the 
Spanish version, click on the IDEAS link and in the upper right hand 
corner of your screen is an "Espanol" icon that changes the directions and 
assessment into Spanish or back to English.   Work is being done to make 
O*NET Profiler available with the same format and Spanish capability.

Career Education Activities:
New to CIS this year is the addition of an On-line  Learning Activities 
Sort.  This new sort allows you to select career education activities 
based on:
 Education Level
 Career Clusters
 Career Fields

you and your students.
