The Instructional Technology Group provides support for Kenyon faculty and students using technology to improve teaching and learning. The group is physically located in the Center for Innovative Pedagogy on the first floor of Olin Library. We consult with the academic community in the following areas:
Moodle is Kenyon College's course management software. It is an open-source software program that assists faculty in easily placing course content on the web where it is readily available to students in the course.
Instructional technologists provide group or individual consulting and tutoring for faculty and students on the use of digital imaging and video editing programs for curriculum-related projects. Currently supported programs include:
Are you looking for a map to show your students? Have you found a map but want to modify it for your specific needs? Do you want your students to work with an interactive online map as part of a lesson? Or do you have an idea to incorporate spatial pedagogy into a project or assignment in your course?
The folks at iSkysoft.com have a quick and easy to use piece of software that allows you to produce video clips from DVDs, convert video files from one format to another, make simple video edits, and download online videos. Both Mac and Windows versions are available.
Instructional technologists are available to consult with faculty to locate and use the best online tools for teaching and research. Such tools include course websites, blogs, wikis, and a range of other online technologies with curricular applications.
If you’re considering making an eBook that integrates images and video clips, iBooks Author is a great app to use, and it’s a free downloadable app on Macs. This app enables you to create an eBook in an iBooks format.
