About the EdTech Office

The Education Technology Office (ETO) supports academic teaching activities in the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering by providing leadership, consultation, development and provision of academic technology solutions.

If you’re using a technology tool in the classroom, or thinking about using a technology tool in the classroom, we are here to help you plan and support it at every stage.


Thank you for joining us!

What we do

Piloting your project at a smaller scale can allow for more effective implementation at scale.

Detailed project planning will ensure that you achieve your goals, whatever they may be. Whether it is to help students achieve learning outcomes, saving time and resources, or making content more accessible and interactive, we’ll help you think about today, tomorrow, and two years from now. Together, we'll develop a roadmap to make your project successful,

There are many diffrerent reasons to undertake a MOOC. Let's start by finding your motivation.

We can help you take your idea to implementation. While we do offer development services and support, you might just want a sounding board. We're happy to listen, offer advice, share contacts and experiences, or provide any other assistance that you might need.

We've run two stand alone MOOCs, one MOOC specialization, and have a MOOC launching in March 2016. We've used both Coursera and EdX. 

Let us help you get started with new tools, techniques, and strategies.

We offer in person, one-on-one or group training sessions to help you familiarize yourself with instructional technology tools. Customized training sessions can be tailored for your specific requirements to help you get the most out of your equipment and tools.

We can work with you to help develop your own training and support materials for your class. Materials can range from quick turnaround resources (e.g., documents, screen captures) to larger projects (e.g., instructional videos). The best development windows for larger resource projects may be between terms or over the summer months, so we encourage you to plan ahead.

Modules can allow for gamification, zone learning, and even micro certificates - all while being on demand and self-guided. Why haven't you built a module yet?

Online Learning Modules can offer learners a self-paced opprotunity to digest content. Often, they include quizzes and other interactive elements. Modules are usually self-contained objects, easily imported and share through a Learning Management System (like Portal).

We have many successful Learning Module projects. To learn more, visit our projects page and filter by "Module Development."

Let's re-imagine your face-to-face class for an online environment.

How we can help

Training

We offer in person, one-on-one or group training sessions to help you familiarize yourself with instructional technology tools. Customized training sessions can be tailored for your specific requirements to help you get the most out of your equipment and tools.

Planning

Detailed project planning will ensure that you achieve your goals, whatever they may be. Whether it is to help students achieve learning outcomes, saving time and resources, or making content more accessible and interactive, we’ll help you think about today, tomorrow, and two years from now.

Consultation

We can help you take your idea to implementation. While we do offer development services and support, you might just want a sounding board. We're happy to listen, offer advice, share contacts and experiences, or provide any other assistance that you might need.

Resource Development

We can work with you to help develop your own training and support materials for your class. Materials can range from quick turnaround resources (e.g., documents, screen captures) to larger projects (e.g., instructional videos). The best development windows for larger resource projects may be between terms or over the summer months, so we encourage you to plan ahead.

Support

When we work together in this setup and implementation process, we can avoid some common missteps in piloting new technology. And you can have the confidence in knowing we’re here to call in case you run into technical difficulties.

Trouble Shooting

We provide direct support online, over the phone, or in person for instructors who are using centrally supported services.
