Academic and Research Programming Services

Academic Research Programming Services provides support for research and education projects. Programmers develop software applications and websites to enhance teaching and learning on campus. The service also offers recharge programming to the UC Davis Health System.

SmartSite

SmartSite helps instructors organize course material (PowerPoint, podcasts, hyperlinks, etc.) into course sites.  It also features built-in tools such as the GradeBook, chat rooms, and collaborative wikis.

UC Davis is moving to a new learning management system, UC Davis Canvas. SmartSite will be available for teaching through Winter 2017.

In Spring 2017, no active sites will be in SmartSite and guest access will be restricted.

In Summer 2017, student access will be restricted.

UC Davis Canvas

UC Davis has chosen Canvas by Instructure as the new campuswide learning management system (LMS).

The service, called UC Davis Canvas, will replace SmartSite starting in fall quarter 2016. SmartSite will remain available until spring 2017 to allow multiple opportunities for individuals to move to the new LMS. IET will work with the campus to manage the transition.

Videoconferencing and Distance Learning

Video Conferencing allows face-to-face communication anywhere in the world.

Distance Learning allows courses taught on campus to be delivered locally, nationally, or internationally, to larger, more diverse audiences. Simultaneous broadcasts link classrooms without regard to location and may be interactive or tape-delivered for a later rebroadcast.
