The ITC is designed to help the Loyola community (faculty, staff, and students) explore technology resources that can be used throughout the educational process. At the end of the 4-week period, participants will have created a Sakai template that can be used for a future course. Participants can also earn a letter of completion. This course complements the Design and Facilitate Online Teaching Courses (OTC). The next offering will run from February 17 - March 20, 2020.
