The role of Educational Technology is to provide educational hardware, software, and technical expertise so that faculty are able to incorporate instructional technology into their instruction, students are able to learn with and about instructional technology, and public school personnel and others may preview a wide variety of instructional technology in a single location.
The Educational Technology Center located in Gary A. Ransdell Hall 2055 and 2056 houses hardware and software for technology rich instruction. The center may be used by faculty and / or students for instruction and may be used by faculty and students and others to experience instructional technology. The center is home to two state-of-the-art electronic classrooms and provides access to various software applications.
