Introducing the EdTech Tools Community Hub

UCSF Education IT team (Ed-IT) and the Library’s instructional designers are pleased to introduce our latest suite of educational technology (ed-tech) tools, crafted to enrich teaching and instructional methodologies. This hub provides UCSF faculty and instructors with comprehensive information and resources about each tool, including the benefits, how to effectively integrate the tools into your educational practices, and recorded demonstrations by request.

Our dedicated instructional design team offers pedagogy-driven guidance complemented by technical support from Ed-IT to seamlessly integrate these tools into your academic workflow. We encourage you to dive into the resources provided in this Community Hub, explore the features of each tool, and reach out to our instructional designers for personalized support and guidance. Together, we can elevate your teaching and learner experiences at UCSF.

These tools are fully integrated with the UCSF Collaborative Learning Environment (CLE) so they are easy for you to explore and implement in instruction. They can also be deployed outside the CLE, ensuring inclusivity for users beyond the UCSF community. Whether you’re looking to enhance collaborative discussions, facilitate competency-based assessments, or engage in peer review activities, they are here to support you every step of the way. You can access the EdTech Tools Community Hub by enrolling online.
