Introducing HUIT Academic Technology

August 5, 2016

With the conclusion of the two-year Teaching and Learning Technologies (TLT) Strategic Program, including the very successful University-wide implementation of Canvas, HUIT has reintegrated the TLT team with Academic Technology Services (AcTS) to form HUIT Academic Technology. In this exercise, we seized opportunities to realign AcTS to better support the teaching, learning and research needs of the University, and to meet HUIT’s fundamental goals to enhance IT service delivery at Harvard and provide greater support to our IT professionals.
