We are eager to explore how we might help you! Contact us at AT-Consulting@Colorado.edu, and we will discuss your project ideas, explain our process, and suggest possible next steps. We are especially focused on project ideas that align with our strategic goals of:
If there is a good fit between our services and your project idea, we will ask for an endorsement from your associate dean, dean, or a senior campus administrator. We will also ask how your project fits the strategic goals of your unit or the campus. Then we will document this in a very brief project charter that we submit to our OIT leadership team for their consideration. If we receive an approval, our creative, diverse, and upbeat team will work alongside you throughout your project (usually for a semester). Finally, we will help analyze your learning situation, prototype technological and pedagogical approaches to your situation, and evaluate how well those approaches worked for you.
We have a team of Technology Learning Assistants (TLAs) ready to answer questions faculty members have on how to use academic technologies. Our TLAs are well-versed in technologies like Desire2Learn, VoiceThread, Kaltura, Clickers, and Google Apps for Education, and Qualtrics. At key demand times of the semester, we also provide trainings on these technologies. To contact our TLAs, send an email to AT-Consulting@colorado.edu or call the IT Service Center at 303-735-4357 (5-HELP from a campus phone).

We analyze aggregate Desire2Learn data to help campus, school, and college administrators answer questions like, how many classes are on D2L, what tools are most popular, or when is the period of peak use during the semester? We are currently working with Arts and Sciences Advising and Vice Provost and Associate Vice Chancellor for Education, Michael Grant, to pilot a system to alert administrators of students who might need academic help at key points in the semester. For more information about that pilot, or if you have questions about how Desire2Learn is used on campus, contact us at AT-Consulting@colorado.edu and we will meet with you to better understand your questions and to explain how we can help you.
To reach anyone on our ATDT, send an email to AT-Consulting@Colorado.edu or call the OIT Service Center at 303-735-4357 (5-HELP from a campus phone), and we'll set up a time to talk and see how we might be of assistance.
