Instructional Technology Support at SCI

The SCI ITS group maintains a catalog of instructional technology that is supported by Rutgers and SCI.  Use this catalog to identify instructional technologies that you need to learn more about in order to manage your online course.  SCI IDTS can work with you to identify Rutgers workshops and trainings, as well as provide 1:1 guidance where appropriate, to ensure that you have the necessary skills to facilitate your online course with confidence.
