Instructional Technology & Research Support (ITRS) provides support for SSOM’s unique educational environment. The applications that support content delivery and student management are designed to work in tandem with one another to allow integrated administration across systems. In addition to the established homegrown environment, third party systems supported by Loyola are available to enhance content delivery and the overall educational experience.

 We are available to assist with:

  • Training and consultation for homegrown applications.
  • Project management for new development requests to enhance existing homegrown applications.
  • Technology recommendations to enhance content delivery, communication and organization.
  • Data extraction for educational research initiatives.
