ITS has launched TechExpress which is a one-stop portal for several Tech systems you interact with daily. As we move to remote learning, it will become an essential tool for supporting your learning.
Computer Labs - On-Campus & Virtual
On-Campus Computer Labs
- The Volpe Library Learning Commons computer lab is the only ITS on-campus computer lab that is open. Printing is available in this lab.
- All other ITS on-campus computer labs are closed and many have been made remotely available in the TechAnywhere virtual computer lab.
Virtual Computer Lab - TechAnywhere
ITS has expanded the TechAnywhere virtual computer lab to aide courses with specialized software dependencies. Please remember to save your files somewhere other than on the virtual lab as files will not be retained. Some software is generally available for student download and more information is available in the above section.
Virtual Group Collaboration - Microsoft Teams & Zoom
Virtual group collaboration will likely be a necessity for some classes. ITS & the CITL have addressed this by making Microsoft Teams and Zoom available to faculty, staff, & students.
All faculty have access to Microsoft Teams. This is a very powerful tool for group collaboration both with video, audio, file-sharing, & group document collaboration. Meeting lengths are not limited as they are with Zoom (see below) - max meeting size of 250 people.
All faculty have access to a free Zoom account. This is a great tool for 1-to-1 meetings of unlimited length or large group meetings for a limited 40 minutes. Faculty can request a Zoom Pro account, which provides unlimited meetings for up to 300 people.
Online Supplemental Learning - LinkedIn Learning
All faculty have access to LinkedIn Learning. This can be used to deep dive through video courses on certain topics you may be teaching in class or to expand your personal knowledge. The videos can be linked in iLearn.
Here's some suggested learning paths & courses in LinkedIn Learning we have available right now:
