The Kenyon Center for Innovative Pedagogy provides support for Kenyon faculty and students using technology to improve teaching and learning.  We consult regularly with the academic community in the following areas, though this list is not exhaustive:

Moodle

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.
