Learning Management Systems

AsULearn (powered by Moodle) is an open-source application that allows classroom interactions to extend onto the web. Academic Technologies supports the primary instance of AsULearn for academic courses, as well as AsULearn-Projects for committees, learning resources, and professional development and AsULearn-Global for courses with enrolled users outside the campus community.

Classroom Technologies

We support, maintain, and standardize all university classrooms according to the SMART classroom standards for classroom technology. In an effort to be open and transparent in the upgrade process, and to help us set priorities for campus, there is a request form for department chairs to use to request a room upgrade for their area.

Media Hosting

Kaltura is the enterprise media platform for campus. Education products include personal capture and lecture capture, live events, learning on the go, and student outreach. It is integrated with AsULearn and is also available via MediaSpace.

Video Conferencing

Zoom is the campus video conferencing platform. Meetings allow for up to 300 participants. For large meetings and webinars, submit a Zoom License Reservation request.

Collaborative Network Services

Collaborative Network Service (CNS) takes the traditional video conferencing format and provides opportunities to collaborate on a multi-tier set of platforms including integrated video-over-IP facilities, SIP enabled software, and Zoom.
