Blackboard and General Services

CIDT staff can help faculty with the latest technology to enrich the classroom (and virtual learning) experience.

In the CIDT office, faculty can experiment with various instructional technologies for academic purposes. We have eight Windows-based workstations with various software, printers, scanners and video equipment, and one Mac workstation.

In the multimedia lab, faculty can create their own materials such as video/audio capture, edit, and conversion to a number of formats. We also offer instruction and guidance in online teaching and learning in the Center for Instructional Design.


One-on-one training for both Web-enhanced and Online courses. Learn More or email
