I recently had the opportunity to demonstrate a variety of technologies that EdTech supports to several members of the faculty on campus. I put together a few presentations and gave them a brief overview of what we had to offer, based on a request from the department chair. EdTech would be more than happy to give other departments the same information through a technology demonstration or other forum.

Here is the sample technology that I demonstrated. Note that there are other technologies that we also support.

SynchronEyes — Allows instructor to control/observe/share machines in a computer lab with the students.


TurningPoint/Clickers — Personal response devices (clickers) give students and instructors immediate feedback during lecture.


Respondus — Test creation software that interfaces with Word and Blackboard to facilitate getting tests and other assessment tools online inside a Blackboard course.


Blogs and Wikis — Students can continue to learn and collaborate in an asynchronous learning environment, moderated by the instructor. Blogs and wikis are available in Blackboard.
