Learning and Technology

The Learning and Technology section helps LAS faculty use technology in instruction, from improving PowerPoint presentations in the classroom to the design and implementation of blended and online courses, even MOOCs! Our mission is to help faculty explore how technology can be combined with existing or new classroom practices, whether the classroom is physical or virtual.

If the online tutorials here don't cover your question or idea, please send us an email.
