This fall, after over a decade in the same space, the Academic Technology team is moving. Beginning the first week in August, you will be able to find us in Science Center suite 142, on the first floor just inside the Oxford Street entrance (next to the Museum of Historical Scientific Instruments).
Come visit us in our new space, either for help with Canvas, a technology consultation, or just to say hello!
Are you interested in helping us test out new tools for teaching and learning? Contact us to learn more about the 2016–17 pilots of our Image Media Manager application, Flashcards, and three Annotation tools, each of which can be integrated into your Canvas site via LTI.
