Grants are awarded on an application basis.

Faculty Support and Training

The Faculty Support Group provides training to faculty on navigating the campus Learning Management System (LMS), developing online courses, using applications, and employing other technology tools.

Media Cabinets

Media cabinets allow faculty to project videos, presentations, and the web from their laptops onto large screens in lecture halls.

Modeling & Animation

Animation and modeling services include 2D and 3D animation using applications like Flash, After Effects, and 3D modeling with polygons and NURBS using Maya and ZBrush. Animation capabilities include traditional keyframe animation and texture mapping as well as procedural animation and dynamics

Podcasting

Allows instructors and campus-affiliated organizations to record lectures, using digital audio recording equipment installed in lecture halls, or portable digital recorders.

 

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, during the 2016-17 academic year. SmartSite will be available for teaching through the 2017 spring term only.

Specialized Programming for Instruction

The Academic & Research Programming group offers recharge programming services to campus and health system clients for projects that are well aligned with ATS' core academic mission. In other words, we provide programming support to projects with pedagogical or research components.

Specialized Programming for Instruction fulfills programming needs for learning simulations or modules. Scripting support covers Action script, CF, Java, Javascript, PHP, and more.

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.
