About Us

Mission

Academic Technology (AT) supports and advances effective learning, teaching, scholarship, and community service with technology by:  

  • Actively collaborating to provide universally accessible solutions

  • Researching, implementing, and evaluating innovations and best practices

  • Developing expertise and competencies through training, consultations, and professional development

  • Designing, equipping, maintaining, and supporting virtual and physical learning environments


This website organizes our activities into these areas:

Classroom

Want to reserve a meeting room, get help using audiovisual equipment, or request a classroom equipment installation? We support the design, installation and support of all classroom technology, campus wide. That includes projectors, speakers, cable connections, document cameras, and lots more. Our classroom database lists the technology in each enhanced classroom and offers tutorials, too.  If you want to check out equipment, or prefer personalized training and support, just call or come by our Media & Classroom Support in LIB 85!

Computer

Need computer software or hardware to support your teaching, learning, and research? We provide anytime, anywhere access to research and teaching software; check out laptops and peripherals to faculty and staff; and offer desktop computer and website support for participating units within Academic Affairs.

Events

Want to build community and learn from your colleagues during a faculty development event? We host and coordinate a range of peer-led faculty programs, from lunch-and-learns, to boot-camps, to institutes, to customized departmental events. And if you need video and audio support for your instructional events, let us know!

iLearn

Need help using any of iLearn's 47 features and integrations, or want to request others?  We optimize and support iLearn so the 30,000+ students and faculty who log in every day can take quizzes, submit assignments, and access resources like Library eReserves, CourseStream lectures, iLearn Videos, and DIVA Collections.  There are 5 ways to contact the iLearn technical support team: in-person (LIB 220), email, phone (405-5555), chat (in iLearn), and SMS.

Media

Looking to enrich your courses and websites with visuals? We offer professional digitization, photography, video production, and graphic design services to faculty and departments in support of academic activities. We maintain the streaming media collections on DIVA and the SF State YouTube channel, and work closely with the Library to support the 18,000+ physical media resources available in the Media Catalog. We enthusiastically promote the streaming media resources on the Library's website, especially the subscriptions to NBC Learn and Academic Video Online: Premium!

    Teaching

    Interested in developing or redesigning a tech-enhanced or online course to improve student success? In collaboration with a cohort of faculty ambassadors, our teaching and learning team is here to support your teaching through individual consults, professional development events, and the management of these CSU and campus initiatives: Affordable Instructional Materials, Quality Online Learning and Teaching, ePortfolio, and Student Evaluations of Teaching Effectiveness.
