Who We Are & What We Do
Our priority is to make UC a university that Excels at eLearning, and each member of IT@UC's eLearning team brings a unique contribution for making that goal a reality. Our focus is to show you how you can use technology to enhance both the teaching and learning experience, both inside and outside of the classroom. With new tools, new ideas and a community willing to reimagine what teaching and learning can be, there's no way we can fail.
Center for Excellence in eLearning
The Creative Team works closely with the Design and Technology teams to help faculty and staff create visually rich and engaging learning modules, videos, and graphic elements. Our award-winning team can assist with your project from start to finish employing professional production techniques – including storyboarding, script writing, graphic design, 3d animation, and professional videography. We can also get you up to speed using your own devices or available on-campus resources so you can take your projects to the next level.
Composed of instructional designers and trainers, the Design Team specializes in the pedagogical aspects of technology and partners with individual faculty members, college deans and the campus instructional design community to identify best practices, document innovative use cases, promote quality frameworks, and leverage evidence-based research to promote active learning and technology-enhanced pedagogical strategies.
The Technology Team includes a broadly skilled team of professionals who have extensive experience partnering with faculty to implement technology-based solutions that support a given pedagogy. In conjunction with college IT staff, the Technology Team also seeks to identify emerging technologies that show promise for improving student outcomes, and then works with the extended eLearning community at UC to conduct small scale pilots that, if successful, can be scaled to campus-wide solutions.
Online learning at UC provides access to an abundance of high-quality educational opportunities - degrees, certificates, and courses online and through other media. These programs meet the need for alternative delivery options that are affordable and convenient. Eleven UC colleges provide distance learning options including degree programs, certificates and course offerings.
UC’s Continuing Education provides an exciting array of noncredit short courses, seminars and educational opportunities designed for diverse audiences of all ages. Communiversity offers a wide variety of hands-on personal enrichment and professional development courses (adults of all ages). The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute invites active adults over 50 to rediscovering the joy of learning for weekday classes and experiences.
