Instructional Technology

blackboardInstructional Technology provides access to support and training in the use of Academic Software for both faculty and students. Group training is available to all incoming students during orientation and hands-on computer support, training and assistance in a face-to-face format is provided when requested by both faculty and students in the Instructional Technology Development Lab (Clarke 109).

Examples of specific academic instructional technology would include the use of:

  • Blackboard (an online Learning Management System),
  • SafeAssign (anti-plagiarism detection software),
  • WebAdvisor (campus administrative information system for use in online registration and advising)
  • LiveText (document assessment system)

The Instructional Technology mission is first to support faculty in their classroom instruction and then to be sure that enrolled students have access to course information provided by their instructors and understand how to use our IT systems to support teaching and learning at VWU.
