Learning Technologies

CIT helps instructors explore and evaluate innovative ways to use learning technologies for teaching at Duke. Learning technologies connect faculty to software and web tools to promote collaboration, enhance communication, share multimedia, teach online, and more. In addition to supporting established learning technologies like Sakai, CIT also works with faculty and administrators to pilot new tools.
