Case-based Activities and Interactive Media

The ETI's media design and development specialists are available to partner with faculty to create and produce instructional media that support learning objectives. The ETI can develop animations, audio content, and simulations.

Development of DL Courses and Course Materials

Faculty members can use the learning management system to support classroom-based courses or to offer courses in the online environment. The ETI can work with faculty to make the best use of the LMS and to develop content that can be used to teach courses either partly or fully in the DL environment.


Research shows that using games in the classroom or in the online environment can increase student motivation, participation, and knowledge retention. The ETI can help faculty members design, develop, and/or implement games effectively.

Implementation of Instructional Techniques

The ETI supports faculty in developing and implementing instructional techniques, strategies and innovations to support teaching and promote learning.  Members of the ETI team can help faculty identify appropriate and effective ways to set up their courses, use classroom time and develop materials,  as well as help faculty enable students to take active roles in learning.


The ETI can work with faculty members to integrate innovative remediation techniques into courses to help students with a wide variety of needs attain mastery of the material.

Small Group Activities

The ETI can help faculty members develop small group activities for the classroom or online environment.


The ETI consults with faculty members who have questions about or ideas for course redesign, the development of new activities, or other topics relating to teaching and learning.

Evaluation and Assessment Support

The ETI can work with faculty members to develop tests and other types of formal and informal assessments to help them determine whether students are meeting course objectives throughout the semester.

The ETI team can also provide course and program evaluation support to help faculty and staff understand the strengths and weaknesses of courses or programs.

Research on the Implementation of Instructional Techniques

The ETI partners with faculty to conduct research on the use of instructional innovations and shares the results of that research with their colleagues.

The Use of DL Tools and Techniques

The ETI can work with faculty members to help them implement DL tools and techniques to allow for greater flexibility during classroom time with students or to allow for teaching to take place when students or faculty members are not on campus.
