Technology-enhanced Learning:  Last semester, OOL began offering services to all faculty members, regardless of delivery format (i.e., face-to-face, hybrid, online). Our technology-enhanced learning services (TEL) have been designed to assist faculty who want to integrate any kind of technology in their instruction to increase engagement, manage their classroom, assess students, or make learning more interactive and collaborative. Book a consultation to identify potential instructional tools and technologies to make your teaching more effective. 

Instructional and Media Studios. If you are interested in recording lectures or creating interactive digital content, you can book an appointment for our studios. You’ll get assistance from our staff through the process or work on your own. To book an appointment, please use this link.

Users’ Communities.  The OOL has started a program for the purchasing of instructional technologies for faculty members. Besides access to the software, community members are also part of training, professional development, a peer review program, and a showcase related to content production using Camtasia.
