To push CCS to the forefront of higher education, redefining the segment by way of collaboration, experimentation and innovation. 

What We Do

The Office of Educational Technology + Innovation (ET+I) supports the technology research and training needs of all academic programs at CCS. This includes research and evaluation of emerging technologies for use in the classroom and online in consultation with the faculty and academic administration. The department also provides faculty and academic staff technology training, support, and certifications. 

The Educational Technology + Innovation office offers regular training in the college’s Learning Management System (Canvas.) Training in additional technologies or software can be requested through your department and will be arranged in conjunction with your Chair. CCS also provides full access to LinkedIn Learning, an online library of on-demand and self-paced software tutorials for all students, faculty and staff to support effective education of digital technology.

In addition to training, the Educational Technology and Innovation office supports the development of all online programming at CCS. New course or program offerings are created in collaboration with the Department Chair and Academic Affairs. Proposals for new offerings can be arranged with your Chair.
