RLT Services

Assessment Building

Get assistance using Moodle activities like Quiz, Active Quiz, and Assignment to assess students. Assess with existing question banks imported for you or create new questions. Design alternative assessments with the help of instructional designers. Learn how to set up automatic grading and how to grade from within Moodle.

Course Review and Technical Update

Looking to improve student satisfaction with the course or wanting to make your course easier or more engaging to teach?  Have a specific concern with your course and not sure how to address it?  Work with us to explore new technologies, Moodle activities, and teaching techniques that could be used in your course. Additional support provided to help implement changes at your request.

Custom Projects

Custom projects to fit the unique needs and goals of research, instruction, and administrative initiatives in CBS, including assistance with data collection and storage (field or lab), finding innovative solutions for teaching in classrooms or online, coding applications/scripts, and more.

Database Services

Design, create, maintain and host existing or new custom databases for research, administrative, or teaching purposes.  Recent examples include upgrading a service record database for an internal service organization, hosting several databases containing research data, and creating a custom database to search and display research photos and associated metadata.

Explore Emerging Learning Technology Solutions

Try out new technologies not supported centrally at the University.  We will test the emerging technologies, and then provide assistance during a pilot implementation with curriculum development, discounted costs, instructor training, and student support during class.

Instructional Design Consultation

Consult with experienced CBS-RLT staff to review a course and identify possible changes to instruction or assignments that may increase student engagement or decrease instructor workload.  Collaborate to develop new curriculum, learn best practices, implement new strategies, and use other University services that support instruction.

Learning Technology Training

Take advantage of one-on-one technology training where you use it-- at your desk or in the classroom.  Have academic technologists train and support students using new technologies in your classroom or provide online support in Moodle through forums or a help block with resource links.

LMS (Moodle) Support

Instructors using Moodle can seek assistance troubleshooting complex problems, revising sites to increase usability and accessibility, building new course or event sites, creating new activities, and setting up complex or large sites for new semesters.

Online and Distance Learning Course Development

Converting a face-to-face course to online or creating a new online course is challenging because what works in a lecture hall does not work in an online environment.  We can help adapt your course and laboratory to the online environment by using new technologies and different instructional strategies.  We also offer annual reviews to update technology and suggest new learning activities.

Software Licensing

In addition to freely available software from the Office of Information Technology (OIT), we provide and manage frequently used licensed software to the College. Licensed software includes MatLab, JMP, and Origin. Depending on licensing rules, software is provided for local installation or through App-To-Go and WTS.

Surveys

Assistance with the creation, distribution, and monitoring of surveys, web forms, or questionnaires.  Support is provided for Qualtrics or Google Forms for research, academic, or administrative purposes.  Transitions from other platforms (i.e. SurveyMonkey) are also supported.

Web Services

Hosting lab, project, and CBS focused websites or web-based applications and tools through the public CBS website or other centrally available resources.
