Leverage technology to engage students in community and deepen learning
Technology is one of five key synergistic and often interdependent domains–along with innovation, diversity, evidence-based teaching, and assessment & evaluation–that guide the resources, services, and mission of the CTI.
Academic technologies afford instructors and students unprecedented opportunities to engage the curriculum and each other in innovative ways in face-to-face, hybrid, and online environments. For example, CTI consultants support instructors in effectively deploying technologies that enable the use of curricular materials like social media and active learning strategies such as polling, peer review, or small group collaboration. We also help faculty leverage the tools available in Canvas, our learning management system, to actively engage students in their own learning.
The Center facilitates the exploration, implementation, and assessment of new and emerging educational technologies. Expert consultants are available to help you explore ideas and identify applications and tools in a collegial environment. Explore educational technologies and our services.
Cornell uses Canvas as its learning management system. Canvas offers numerous features to improve the student learning experience and to make the platform a true extension of the learning environment.
Cornell's Online Learning Community (COLC)
COLC began in 2014 with the goal of bringing faculty and staff together to build both a community and space where people can share and learn together about designing and delivering online and hybrid courses at Cornell.
