Implementing technology in your classroom does not automatically improve student learning. Tools you choose to use should align with learning objectives and contribute to your course goals. The CU Boulder Office of Information Technology (OIT) supports a robust suite of teaching and learning applications. These pages outline evidence- and experienced-based methods for teaching well with CU-supported technologies.
When choosing tools to aid in your instruction, OIT recommends using Canvas and other university-supported technologies. This preserves academic continuity for your students, allowing them to use familiar tools, and ensures OIT can support you as you implement these technologies.
Support is available as you learn the technical aspects of these tools. Request hands-on training, or watch on-demand videos and read step-by-step guides on the OIT website. OIT’s Academic Technology Consultants are available to meet one-on-one to discuss your academic technology needs, or can provide a number of academic technology workshops for groups upon request.
Remote and Hybrid Support:
In addition to academic technology trainings and help OIT provides for in-person instruction, they can support teaching in any modality. Request teaching equipment, or request a Technology Copilot for your course. Copilots are TAs, LAs, or student volunteers who help instructors by facilitating remote students’ participation (e.g. letting the instructor know when a remote participant commented in the Zoom chat) and helping with the technologies in the hybrid classroom.
