Learning Technologies and Online Education provides resources and training for faculty in the effective use of educational technologies. To these ends we keep current on emerging technologies and their proposed impact on education. We strive to assist Plymouth State University in providing a student-centered learning environment that offers a high quality education. We offer numerous workshops throughout the year, and provide individualized assistance where needed.

For those individuals who will be teaching online–either fully online or in a hybrid format–we provide the instruction necessary to attain PSU’s certification for teaching online. We also provide assistance for lecture capture, course design, multimedia development that can make your online courses more interactive and engaging.

We are the primary contacts for faculty questions concerning our Learning Management System (Moodle), our e-portfolio system (Mahara), SMART Boards, and any other technology used for teaching and learning at PSU.
