Bring Technology into the Classroom

Support for technology is provided by Academic Technology Solutions (ATS), which offers a range of services.
 

Tech Support Inside and Outside the Classroom

AV Services provides support for audio-visual equipment in the classroom. It also lends equipment to faculty, such as clickers, projectors, screens, cameras, and microphones. For immediate audio-visual support in your classroom, call 773-834-4499.

ATS offers other forms of support, too. It curates and provides assistance for using a wide range of digital teaching tools, including Canvas. Walk-in support is provided at the TECHB@R, located in the Joseph Regenstein Library.

In addition, University of Chicago students and faculty have access to thousands of training videos on Lynda.com.
 

Multimedia Content Development

ATS can assist faculty with producing media of all different kinds. It can help:

  • Record lectures and other material so that they can be accessed asynchronously or streamed live
  • Digitize media, such as slides, photographs, and maps
  • Enhance media to correct for imperfections or emphasize items of interest—and even create new media, such as 3-dimensional models and virtual spaces
