Academic Technologies - Rays of the Future


In accordance with Ohio University's Vision Statement, the mission of Academic Technology is to provide resources and services that enhance the teaching and learning environment at Ohio University.  There is no doubt that technology will play an integral part of being "the nation's best transformative learning community."  We work collaboratively with the Faculty Technology Advisory Group (FTAG), Information Technology Advisory Council (ITAC), and Office of Information Technology (OIT) colleagues to advance technology best practices for faculty, staff, and students on all campuses.

The Environmental Scan (10/18/10) notes "the techno/info-centric divide" between students, and faculty and staff.  The core purpose of Academic Technology is to bridge that gap by providing the best strategies to adopt new technology tools across the university community. 

The primary goal of Academic Technology is to support faculty and staff in their efforts to enhance the learning experience of students.  To fulfill this goal, we will:

  • Assist in the delivery and support of the learning management system that best fits the needs of faculty and students, as directed by the Faculty Technology Advisory Group (FTAG).
  • Provide comprehensive support of enterprise-wide academic and administrative applications throughout the entire Ohio University system, inclusive of eLearning OHIO, College of Osteopathic Medicine, and all regional campuses and centers.
  • Provide opportunities to experiment with, and develop, new technologies for teaching and research. 

The experience, skills and talent provided by the staff of Academic Technology are vital to the success of the core mission of Ohio University.
