Teaching and Technology Tool Trials

The Teaching and Technology Tool Trials (TnT3) program is a way for digital education and partners to experiment and innovate with new tools for teaching (most will be integrated into Canvas). Technologies integrated under the program will be approved following the Integrating External Apps with the Learning Management System Policy, but will be offered on a trial or pilot basis and may or may not be available long-term.

While most technologies integrated under TnT3 will be available in Canvas for any faculty member on campus to use, in order to reflect on how they are being used and ascertain their effectiveness in teaching and learning, each technology will have a project lead. The project lead will provide training and support around the technology and work with faculty to assess the effectiveness in their courses. The effectiveness assessment along with financials will help determine whether the university officially adopts each technology at the end of the TnT3 time period.
