Instructional Technology Group


Instructional Technology Group offers faculty and students technological support relating to academic disciplines. We emphasize a "hands-on" approach to our services, whether it's support for courses in Blackboard or support to augment classroom presentations. UCR has also invested in Lynda.com in support of software training.

The Instructional Technology component of Instructional Technology Group supports campus faculty by introducing new technologies and by providing access, training, and support in the use of computers and networking in the classroom. By enhancing the instructor's capability to use technology in the classroom as well as out of the lecture hall, we enhance the quality of instruction and support life-long learning and critical thinking among our faculty and students.

Mission Statement

Instructional Technology Group recognizes that instruction is a dynamic, ongoing interchange between instructor and student that can occur both in and outside of the classroom. By introducing, providing access to, and supporting the use of computers by faculty and students, we seek to enhance the quality and quantity of research, instruction and service provided by University faculty.
