eLearning and Instructional Technology / Digital Media

Media-rich instruction can help solve instructional problems, enhance learning, and support student success.  The eLearning and Instructional Technology Specialists along with the Digital Studio and our Digital Media Developers provide support in the use of teaching with technology, creation of digital learning experiences through consulting services, project development, and instructional technology exploration for GVSU faculty and staff. 

One of the best ways to contribute to student success and to increase effectiveness and efficiency is to take advantage of technology to solve instructional problems and to create engaging teaching resources.

The eLearning team has assembled a wide array of Teaching with Technology resources that can be used in teaching, including:  Blackboard, Blackboard Collaborate, Ultra, Ensemble, TechSmith Relay, VoiceThread, and much more!
