About AT

Our mission is to provide a continually evolving, faculty friendly, student focused environment that uses technologies to support teaching, learning and pedagogical innovation at Keene State College

Academic Technology partners with faculty to research, design, and develop technology-rich projects that support teaching and learning. Our role is to guide faculty towards technologies that are simple to use and supports learning by giving students agency in the digital projects they create.

How do we do this?

  • Consultations on teaching and learning projects
  • Targeted and relevant technology focused workshops
    • Workshops always address best-use and instructional strategies
  • Open Office Hours designed as a drop-in opportunity to answer quick “how do I….” questions
  • Coordinate events that showcase faculty digital projects

What are some examples of technologies we support?

  • Canvas learning management system
  • Collaborative tools (example: Google suite of tools including Docs)
  • Synchronous tools (example: Zoom, a web conferencing tool which is embedded in Canvas)
  • Video capture and distribution (example: Kaltura/My Media which is embedded in Canvas)
