These services help IU instructors develop approaches that work for a variety of students.

Learning management

IU's learning management system (LMS), Canvas, is a digital environment where instructors and students can manage course materials and communication.

Canvas integrates with tools such as Kaltura and VoiceThread to provide the IU community with environments ideal for collaboration, learning, creativity, and administration.

Campus centers for teaching
and learning

The campus centers for teaching and learning provide IU faculty and instructors with consulting for pedagogical and instructional technologies.

Each teaching and learning center is a partnership between UITS Learning Technologies and relevant campus units.

Assistive Technology and
Accessibility Centers

The UITS Assistive Technology and Accessibility Centers (ATAC) provide specialized learning services for students with disabilities and the faculty and staff who support them. The ATAC offers a wide range of assistive media technologies, as well as comprehensive evaluations and consultations.

IU Online

IU Online makes learning possible wherever and whenever is best for you, with hundreds of online classes and more than 100 online academic programs.

Learning Spaces

Classroom tech extends well beyond the hardware available in IU classrooms. Collaboration technologies like video conferencing, web conferencing, and video streaming can help you educate students across the country and collaborate with peers across the globe.

Lecture recordings capture audio, video, computer content, and content from document cameras-and you can distribute the final product to students via the web or Canvas. Design services are also available if you are looking to design or renovate a learning space, design an audio/visual system, or install technology in a new or existing space.
