What We Do

We work closely with students, faculty and staff to advance, educate, promote and direct online and other digital learning offerings and services – on campus, and beyond. As part of this work, we enjoy looking beyond the traditional practices of higher education, seeking new ways to reach students, engage them, and make learning more accessible.

  • Collaborate with the DRC in ensuring that digital learning offerings and services meet accessibility requirements and principles of universal design
