Academic Technology Solutions
Academic Technology Solutions works closely with faculty to facilitate the use of technology in teaching, research, and scholarship. Through close partnerships with the Library, museums, and research computing units across campus, we help faculty explore new ways of approaching academic endeavors using online tools, digital materials, and other technology solutions.
We partner with instructors to implement instructional technology, develop instructional projects, create digital course materials, and more.
We can assist with content development through creating or enhancing imagery, animation, 3D renderings, video production, and more.
We can help you with your audio-visual needs, whether it be using AV in our campus classrooms or support for a departmental event.
