Goal 3 of the UND Strategic Plan is to “Deliver more educational opportunity online and on-campus.” There are many academic technology tools available to help improve course delivery in support of this goal. Our instructional designers and academic support staff are here to help you use technology to meet learning outcomes for both online and on-campus courses. Several workshops in February demonstrate how to use these technologies, and also why and when to use these tools to be most effective.
