Covid-19 Notice

COVID-19 concerns? Stay updated with the latest information and what’s being done to protect the OU community at the HSC COVID-19 Updates page.

Welcome to the Office of Academic Technology

Academic Technology/Academic Media are offices under the Office of the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs and Faculty Development umbrella that provide core media services, support, consulting and training.

Attention all HSC Brightspace/D2L (Learning Management System) users:

The IT Executive Steering Committee (ITESC) tasked the Teaching and Learning Technologies Advisory Committee (TLTAC) to transition the learning management system (LMS) for HSC programs from Brightspace by D2L to Canvas. This exciting transition brings a host of benefits, including a more intuitive and user-friendly interface, enhanced collaboration tools, and a robust mobile experience. In addition, the transition will result in a single, unified LMS for all OU faculty, students, and staff.  We understand that change can be disruptive. As we embark on this journey, our goal is to provide you with a seamless experience, empowering you to excel in your academic pursuits. We look forward to unlocking the full potential of Canvas together! VISIT THE PAGE HERE:
