Support resources for EdTech tools

Pandemic-induced remote instruction has required us to spend more time online supporting our students. Many people are using EdTech tools now more than ever before in their teaching careers. At Michigan Tech the “Big Three” EdTech tools are Canvas, Panopto-Huskycast, and Zoom. Using these tool effectively is critical for a successful teaching and learning experience for you and your students. Have you also found yourself “pushing” these tools to the next level? To do more with the tools you need to learn more about their capabilities. The elearning team helps instructors with that every day. But we don’t do it alone. We rely of the extensive support and training resources available from our vendors. To help you find “how-to” information more quickly we have gathered the links to the training resources for some of the most common EdTech tools you are likely using often.
