A Guide to Technology Resources at Drexel
The Online Learning Team (OLT), located in the Instructional Technology Center (ITC) in Room 109 of the Korman Center, provides support for faculty and professional staff in the areas of online teaching/learning, educational technology, and training.

It facilitates course-related activities, including:
- Course planning, management, and revision
- Course content dissemination (such as syllabi and course readings)
- Communication among students and instructors using messages (course mail), announcements, threaded discussion (asynchronous), chat (synchronous), and email
- Student self-assessment
- Electronic assignment submission
- Testing, grading, and automatic scoring for non-essay tests
- Student access to grades
- Organization of electronic work groups

The OLT offers workshops on a variety of topics throughout the year, including Learn, Camtasia, SharePoint, Web content, and more. For a schedule, see http://www.drexel.edu/irt/workshops.
For more information, contact the OLT at 215-895-1224 or email@example.com. To request an ad hoc workshop for a group, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the topic(s) you would like covered, estimated number of attendees, and preferred day(s), time(s), and location(s).
Technology Sandbox, IRT’s virtual test area, provides a space for faculty and staff to “play” with new applications in a non-production, pilot environment. Faculty can test the value of these tools for their classrooms and make suggestions for other sandbox items to consider. Access the Technology Sandbox at drexel.edu/irt/technologysandbox.
Photo Class List
Photo Class List (http://www.drexel.edu/classlist) allows you to see who is enrolled in your classes for the current term and print a class list with photos. It also offers options for communicating with your classes via email (an alternative to the fully-featured Learn).
ListServ (http://lists.drexel.edu) allows you to easily email an entire class or customizable group of individuals using only one email address instead of many. Class email lists requested through Photo Class List are set up in ListServ. Options include broadcast lists (one-way communication) and discussion lists (open or moderated).
See more information about these services at http://www.drexel.edu/irt/mailing-lists or by contacting the Mass Mailing team at email@example.com.
