Faculty Technology Support

Classroom Technology Training

Did you Know?

The Campus Technology Services (CTS) department is available to provide training to enhance the utilization of classroom technology. As the scope and complexity of instructional technology continues to expand, training becomes increasingly critical to ensure technology provides benefit rather than frustration.  It is our goal to ensure the technology made available is enhancing the educational process.

The training available from CTS is focused primarily on operation of the technology located in the classrooms. However, we can also provide training on other technologies in use on campus, such as E-mail, Video Conferencing and other general computer operations.

Send requests for training to helpdesk@matsu.alaska.edu or call 745-9764.
  • Please indicate particular areas of interest so we may tailor the training to your specific needs.

Classroom Equipment

Although we strive to standardize technology across all classrooms, some rooms have slight variations in equipment. But most rooms have

  • A computer

  • Cables to connect your laptop to the projector

  • A DVD/VHS player

  • A ceiling-mounted projector

  • A digital presenter (ELMO)

Blackboard/Zoom/Collaborate and other Instruction Technology
