Instructional Technology

This section contains information about OID services related to instructional media and instructional technology services as well as the Faculty Committee on Educational Technology (FCET).  The purpose of the tools and services offered are to use technology, when it makes sense, to augment and facilitate the teaching and learning that happen both inside and outside the physical classroom.  The FCET acts as an important sounding board for these endeavors.
 
To a growing number of faculty and students, the CCLE is their Course Management System (CMS).  Often referred to as the 'CCLE Shared System', this hybrid service is operated by the CCLE Home, a unit within OID that coordinates the CCLE effort, in partnership with school and divisional IT staff.
 
Instructional Media Production
Instructional Media Production (IMP) supports all aspects of effective presentation, with a staff of media professionals and a state-of-the-art technical facility.  Each project receives in-depth consultation to develop a specifically tailored and comprehensive communication strategy.

Instructional Media Collections & Services
The Instructional Media Collections & Services (IMCS) primarily serves faculty and departmental personnel who use media in the classroom.  The IMCS houses and maintains several department and study center collections and features an ever growing collection of DVDs, videotapes, laserdiscs and films.

Instructional Media Lab
The Instructional Media Lab provides access to course-related materials for self-study, group instruction or research.  The Media Lab enables faculty to incorporate media into the curriculum beyond using limited classroom hours and offers students an opportunity to learn at their own pace, with the flexibility of studying at times convenient to their individual schedules.

Online Course Development
In response to an increase in faculty interest with online and hybrid course development, OID has developed resources to help guide individuals and departments interested in learning more or experimenting in this rapidly changing arena.
