Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Providing quality education in modern times can be difficult to impossible if you are on your own. The Center's mission is to enable our faculty to integrate and utilize technology as a tool that will enhance how they teach. To accomplish this we focus on working with learning and teaching technologies of all kinds. This allows us to provide assistance to faculty in incorporating these tools into their classes. See below for descriptions of several of the services we can provide to help A-State faculty present their expertise in the best way possible.

  • Room Reservations

    We have several spaces that we would love for you to use, see our Spaces page for details on each of the rooms. We ask that Faculty or Staff who would like to reserve these rooms send an email stating the time(s) and day(s) they would like to reserve and we will see how we can best accommodate you. Our staff will be on hand to assist with any technical issues you may have getting started. 

  • Digital Pedagogy Support

    Our office can support your implementation of Digital Pedagogy in two ways.

    Live LMS Support

    If you have a question about how to implement an assignment or something isn't working as you expected, you can either call, email, or drop by our office. One of our Faculty Support Specialists will then work with you to either resolve your issue or determine what the next steps should be to get your issue resolved.

    Course Building

    The goal of the Course Building Process is to build quality courses by using best practices through the methodology of the Course Development Life Cycle (CDLC). Best practices suggest that partnering the content expert with a course builder/designer allows the content expert to focus on developing quality course content, instead of focusing their time on the arrangement of materials, course layout and design within the learning management system. 

    Our Faculty Support Specialist can help:

    • Develop program-level templates
    • Redesign courses or learning modules
    • Work one-on-one with faculty to plan new or updated courses
    • Plan Organizations for program-level information
    • Evaluate courses using our Quality Course Review Rubric

  • Digitizing


    Have some older media that you need to preserve on your hard drive?   Do you have a video clip that you need to digitize for online viewing? Our Digitize service is here to help!

    We understand that it is not always convenient to pull out the slide projector or drag the VCR caddy out of storage. Nevertheless, we don't want you to have to sacrifice this valuable information just because the media format is outdated. That's why we offer several options for converting older formats of media to new easier to use versions. We can even store your clips/ videos on our media server (see below) so that you can use them in your Blackboard classes just by posting a link! Once the student clicks the link, a new window opens and automatically plays your media file. It's that easy.

    Below are just a few of the conversion services that we offer:

    • VHS to DVD or storage onto the media server.
    • Vinyl Records and cassette tapes to CD, MP3 format, or storage on the media server.
    • CD's for storage on the media server.
    • DVD's for storage on the media server.
    • Carousel projector slides and photographs into digital format.
    • We can also help and/ or teach you to edit and convert your video-taped lectures to DVD or you can store them on our media server for use in Blackboard or a public domain. (For security reasons, you must specify that you would like to use the media in a public domain.)
    • We can also help you with PowerPoint Presentations.
    • We can even show you how to narrate them if you would like.

    Visit our site to submit a request and then drop your media off at our office for processing.
