Learning technology has a wide range of applications in a student's learning experience, including organization, portable and easily-accessible information, and access to a wider range of learning materials and activities, such as audiovisuals and interactive modules. Learning experiences can be enhanced and made more effective with technology, but only if used in a meaningful manner. The goal of Office of Teaching and Learning is to help you with optimizing technological tools for your daily learning activities, both inside and outside of the classroom, while working with the instructors and the curriculum to affect technology-agnostic changes that’d improve the overall educational experience.
