Instructional Technology is focused on the teaching and learning side of IT. This group works with faculty to enrich courses through the appropriate use of technology and pedagogical techniques. This involves the improvement of on-campus courses, experiments with flipped classroom models of instruction, and the creation of online/hybrid courses to reach new audiences.
The team also manages and supports a variety of online technologies that faculty use to teach courses. The primary tool is Moodle, which is used by a vast majority of all courses at the University of Redlands. They also support the use of Zoom, a videoconferencing tool that can be used for a variety of academic and administrative purposes. In addition, support is provided to a variety of tools that support student feedback, instructional video, educational uses of social media, and plagiarism detection.
