Our Mission

Academic Technology supports students, faculty, and staff in a variety of ways by offering training for faculty interested in implementing new technologies in the classroom, as well as technical support for using Cornell's current learning management system, Moodle. Through Audiovisual Services, faculty can check out laptops, projectors, and other equipment for classes and academic work. For students, the Center for Teaching and Learning houses the Academic Technology Studio, an open space for students to learn and collaborate with peer technology consultants on projects--personal, professional, or academic. Students are also able to use Audiovisual Services, and can check out a variety of equipment, including microphones and video cameras.
