  • Meeting Type : Webcast

This webcast was hosted in partnership with Turnitin.

The proliferation of tools and technologies to support digital learning increased dramatically during the pandemic. Many institutions adopted edtech at a rapid pace with the movement to remote online learning. Others have been adopting and implementing technology for supporting digital learning for several years. However, these technologies are often duplicative, inaccessible, and expensive to support. After all, how many polling products does one institution need?

Panelists discussed how to strategically evaluate and audit technology and tools to ensure that they are:

  • Institutionally supported.
  • Necessary, and not duplicative.
  • Accessible.
  • Utilized by students.
  • Familiar to faculty and staff.
  • Sustainable.
  • Safe.
