Tools and technology for faculty

It takes the right resources to support excellence in teaching. From curriculum development to live classroom and online teaching the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning wants to connect faculty with the resources they need. We also want to share teaching best practices from faculty at our institution, other colleges and universities, and research organizations. If it's a good idea about teaching, we want to share it (so send us your contributions).

The College's Eastern Florida Online (EFO) and Academic Technology teams take a lead role in overseeing Canvas, the College's Learning Management System (LMS). In addition to Canvas, eLearning instructors utilize several software services and web-based applications which are operated by third parties in order to provide the most effective tools and educational opportunities. Visit EFO's Technology Resources page for helpful information and support links about these tools.

The Internet and multimedia technologies allow us to engage students in innovative ways. The Academic Technology Department’s (AcTec) mission is to assist faculty members in the implementation of teaching and learning technologies to enhance their instruction with the focus on student engagement and learning. AcTec offers training and support for curriculum development and educational technologies. You'll find information about some of AcTec's support options on this page and in the Curriculum Development link in this page's menu; plus you can explore their full services on the AcTec website.
