Instructional Technology Services (ITS) provides professional development opportunities for using technology to enhance teaching and learning; administers and supports face-to-face, online, hybrid, and distance education teaching resources; and shares expertise in implementing pedagogical best practices at Texas A&M University.
Supporting Your Teaching
Our group is responsible for administering, maintaining, and developing university-wide systems, services, and training to support Texas A&M's online learning infrastructure. These responsibilities range from managing the centralized eCampus learning management system (Blackboard Learn) to distributing software resources, such as Turnitin and Respondus. All our services are provided at no cost to instructors and staff.
We conduct a full range of help and training that complements various learning styles and fosters effective course design. We share best practices in course management, instructional design, multimedia applications, and technology concepts. Learn more about the systems and software we support.
Our state-of-the-art, active learning training classroom—complete with collaboration tables, interactive Smartboards, videoconferencing capabilities, and "soft spaces" for informal conversations—is where we hold most of our hands-on training sessions. We can also schedule customized professional development for groups at your facilities and at a time that's convenient for you.
In addition, we provide information about other types of technology resources that are available at the university beyond what we directly support. Therefore, we serve the Texas A&M teaching community as a facilitator and advocate of instructional technology initiatives.
We welcome your questions and ideas about how to best integrate instructional technology in your course. We encourage you to contact us and make an in-person consultation appointment to ensure that necessary resources, materials, and personnel are available to assist you when you arrive.
