Not only does the Teaching & Learning Center support students, we also work closely with Faculty and Staff members as well.  In addition to general technology support, we assist faculty members in teaching online and course design, including creating custom interactive learning objects.  You can find helpful information in the Remote Live Instruction Basic Training course on your Canvas dashboard.  We also offer the certification course required of all online faculty.  You can contact us at the above email and phone number.

NEW! Lightboard Videos

The Teaching & Learning Center now has two Revolution Lightboard Studios!

Faculty can use these lightboards to prerecord virtual lecture content. Write on a glass pane and the recorded video image is reversed for students! Use these to develop lecture material with straightforward writing or to annotate PowerPoints.


You can also use the lightboards to deliver live Zoom lectures, and see your students on a floor monitor!
