Technology Support Policy
The Malone Center staff is pleased to assist University faculty in identifying, adapting, and adopting technologies to support their instructional goals. However, with the rapidly expanding array of instructional technologies that are available and in keeping with evidence-based best practices, we focus our efforts on technologies with the greatest potential for positively impacting student learning and our campus community as a whole. This includes:
- Canvas (UM’s learning management system);
- Other institutionally licensed software such as Box (UM’s file storage and sharing platform) and Zoom (UM’s web conferencing and synchronous distance education platform);
- Standard classroom technology;
- Malone Center equipment available for faculty checkout;
- Instructional technologies included in the Malone Center’s Instructional Technology Toolkit.
At this time, we cannot support any individually licensed technologies such as book publishers’ learning platforms. If you are interested in adopting such a tool, we encourage you to reach out to IS&T’s Asset Specialist Connie Wyatt at (205)665-6127 or firstname.lastname@example.org who can talk you through the procedure for applying for software or hardware purchases and Canvas integration. You may also wish to contact a member of the company’s customer support team for questions regarding course use and pedagogical strategies.
