:: Technical Assistance for Faculty

ETA office provides technical assistance to faculty teaching online courses.

Technical assistance is provided if you incur a technical problem when using application software (such as PowerPoint, Flash, Word, Dreamweaver) to develop course content, uploading content to Blackboard, or accessing content currently on your course website. We also provide support and assistance with visual design, selecting application software and Blackboard tools, assessing your course to ensure instructional integrity, developing simulations, multimedia presentations, digitizing course content and multimedia development. See 'Support Services' for details. (Sorry, we do not provide assistance with computer hardware problems or on-campus courses.)
