Academic Technologies Update
Back on campus?
Remote Teaching Website
A new accessibility platform called Ally is now available in all Canvas course sites with tools for faculty and students.
Faculty and students who want to explore Ally may do so starting Spring 2022. We’ll gather your feedback, questions and suggestions to prepare training and support resources to be ready for the official launch of Ally in Fall 2022.
Waiting for me every morning in my email inbox is OSU Today, a daily email collecting bits and bobs about OSU – events, opportunities, and my favorite, Today in the News Media. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that our faculty are often featured across the news media, either to tell the story of their work, or to use their background and expertise to help explain a subject through the media.
The FMC Lightboard is a tool for creating compelling, visually dynamic videos to help you effectively connect with your students.
