Curricular Technology Tools

From Help Wiki


Evergreen provides a range of technologies for faculty to utilize in their teaching. Below are some of the primary options available to faculty by request via the Academic Resources dashboard.

Help choosing the right tool

Academic technology support is built on the idea that technical staff consult and connect faculty with the appropriate technology to support their teaching. This is accomplished through one-on-one consultation, connecting faculty to appropriate technology resources and resource providers.
