Mixed & HyFlex Classroom Technology

Technologies in many classrooms look different for Fall 2020. Mixed and HyFlex delivery modes have driven changes to technology in academic classrooms, labs, and offices across campus. Several of these changes were made quickly to meet the need for new online delivery options. To help communicate these changes, Information Technology has added a News & Announcements section on their homepage which lists IT projects and inititives that may affect you and your area. In addition, if you haven't had an opportunitity to view the support changes that address these technology changes, begin by visiting our Equipment Guides & Videos webpage. Also new this semester is the software webpage. Here you will find software support broken dow between faculty and student tabs. Sometimes it helps to see the student experience with the same software as you successfully guide and support them with its use.
