Meet Your Office of Academic Technology Team

Our team recently met for a day-long strategic planning retreat, where we focused on priorities for the upcoming year.

We thought you’d enjoy “meeting” us and hearing about some of the items we have in store for you. Here are just a few highlights:
  • Implement TurnItIn (Plagiarism prevention software)
  • Implement identity verification
  • Support the e-portfolio rollout
  • Improve instructor support (training) at the College
  • Enable virtual office hours for instructors and the Student Support Team
  • Maintain currency of our Blackboard system by completing two upgrades (December and June)
  • Support the rollout of additional Blackboard systems (such as Community and Collaborate)
  • Explore ways to support the use of Zoom for teaching and learning

We hope you’re just as excited about the future as we are!
