Education Technologies

Education Technologies encompass a wide range of tools and techniques to support learning and teaching and are a key component of the Vanderbilt University Strategic Plan. By embracing these new technologies we foster innovation in learning, teaching, and discovery. If you need assistance using Brightspace or course presentation technologies, please refer to the Center for Teaching.

If you are looking for alternatives to written assignments, we can offer an introduction to using

  • Twine for text-based games and interactive storytelling
  • Wikipedia for public history and translation assignments
  • Omeka for working with primary sources and creating digital exhibits
  • WordPress for blogging assignments
If you’re interested in trying out a new education technology, we’d be glad to help you explore the options. We offer weekly workshops, personalized tutorials, and support sessions for faculty and students.
