Instructional Technology

It doesn't matter if you are a technology guru​ or luddite, our instructional technology and design teams are interested in working with you. We are here to assist and guide you toward success.

Here at CMU, "Instructional Technology" is a pretty broad area which includes technology tools that include classroom hardware and software, audio/video/media creation, presentation tools, a learning management system, communication tools, and much more. While the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning does not necessarily run or provide all of the support for each of the tools, our goal is to assure that you are using them with a strong pedagogical focus . We partner and collaborate with various entities across the University community as appropriate.

We encourage faculty to bring their challenges, ideas, desires, needs, and interests to us. If it makes sense to weave technology into the solution, we can assist you and work together to create a plan of attack that includes quality research, planning, production, integration, support, evaluation, and more. 

It is our intention to do whatever we can to assure that everyone involved in an instructional technology-related integration is enjoying a positive experience. 

There are a number of well-supported instructional technologies already in place to take advantage of in face-to-face, online, and off-campus environments. If you are having trouble finding a tool to meet your needs, please contact us to discuss the options. If we don't currently have a tool available to fit your situation, we can look into options together.
