Centre for Teaching Excellence

Educational Technology

We support educators of all experience levels in the use of educational technology to create engaging and effective learning experiences.

Here are the key tools that we support:

  • ELearn
  • Videoconferencing
  • Microsoft Teams
  • Microsoft 365
  • Kaltura Streaming Video
  • Pressbook
  • Adobe Creative Cloud
    Adobe CC access is granted to all employees and to all student labs. If you need a product installed in a lab, contact IT and they will deploy it. Adobe CC was offered to all students free of charge by Adobe during the summer of 2020 in the midst of the pandemic – it is no longer offered by Adobe. Adobe CC is offered to specific online or distance classes for at home use. For an online course, you must submit your request to your Dean, who will in turn forward this request to the Director of IT at CapU. Note that there is a per seat cost incurred for this offering.


Classroom Technology

Classrooms have a variety of presentation equipment available. If you are teaching on campus, check out your classroom space ahead of your first class and test any audiovisual equipment set up and connections. The IT Services department can help you with room bookings and set up for computer labs and specific needs. They will also  loan you equipment for both short and long term purposes.

This instructional video will show you how to use the wireless setup in classrooms with newer setups.
