Technology

Technology is an important tool for teaching and learning at Alverno College. Three departments that support the use of technology on campus are Technology Services, The Media Hub and Information Systems.

Technology Services

Technology Services provides computing resources for Alverno students. Facilities available for general instructional use include the Computer Center in the Teaching, Learning and Technology Center, four computer classrooms in the Nursing and Liberal Arts Building, and mobile computer carts and laptops for classroom use. Technology Services also supports a variety of discipline-specific and residence hall computer labs.

The Media Hub

The Media Hub, a student-centered multimedia production facility, is also located on the first floor of the Teaching, Learning and Technology Center. The Media Hub loans laptops, camcorders, digital cameras and 35mm cameras for student projects. It also provides a video studio and a lab for creating and editing digital video and multimedia presentations. A videoconferencing center gives students the opportunity to take distance learning classes.

Information Systems

Information Systems is responsible for the system administration, technical development, implementation, integration, reporting, and on-going support of Alverno College’s administrative system (Datatel). IS provides students with access to Interactive Online (IOL), a web interface to the College’s administrative database. IOL interacts directly with the administrative system so data is available immediately upon entry or update. This web interface contains portions developed by both Datatel and Alverno College.
