Academic Technology Tools
An Office of Information Technology business service
The Academic Technology Tools service provides technologies to support teaching and learning. We manage the University’s Course Management Systems (Moodle and Canvas) and plugins such as Turnitin, Kaltura, VoiceThread and more. In addition, we offer survey and polling software. See below for more information about specific technologies.
Our responsibilities include:
selecting technologies that best meet University of Minnesota community needs
implementing centrally supported academic technologies by working with others in IT and with vendors
maintaining, modifying, and improving centrally supported academic technologies through the OIT Demand process, and in response to feedback from users at the University of Minnesota
keeping the University community informed about upgrades, changes, outages, and other issues of interest related to centrally-supported academic technologies
If you are experiencing difficulty with or have questions about any centrally supported technologies, please contact Technology Help.
