Would you like to develop an online course and are not sure where to start? Review the major steps in the Online Instructor Toolkit and contact OIT HelpDesk for assistance.
Our instructional designers will consult with you regarding online and
blended course design and evaluation. We also design and develop a wide
variety of media and multimedia materials including text, images, audio,
video, animation, and interactive elements for use in instruction. If
you need help with structuring your course Web site or Online@UT (Blackboard Learn) course
site, or with hosting media files, we can help with that too.
We offer a variety of professional development opportunities.
Face-to-face and online training is offered every semester on computer
programs and strategies for teaching with technology. Grants and
fellowships that provide opportunities for you to receive additional OIT
staff support, release time/stipends, hardware/software, and so forth
are also available. Calls for proposals for grants and fellowships are
typically released yearly.Explore Faculty Development Opportunities

learning challenges with technology-mediated interventions.Explore Teaching Strategies
We provide many tools that support teaching and learning whether you
