For Faculty

Academic Technology Lab

A resource center for faculty, instructors and TAs interested in using multimedia and other technologies to improve teaching, learning and research at Stanford, the Academic Technology Lab (ATL) will reopen in Meyer Library in September 2013.

Academic Technology Specialists

Academic Technology Specialists collaborate with faculty and graduate students on innovative research and teaching projects. There are currently ATS positions in the Department of Anthropology, Department of English, Department of History, Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages, Humanities Center, Institute for Research in the Social Sciences, Program in Human Biology, and Stanford Language Center.

Classrooms

Academic Computing Services supports several innovative technology-rich classrooms in Lathrop Library.

Other technology-enhanced classrooms are managed by the Registrar's Office.

CourseWork and Stanford Syllabus

CourseWork is Stanford's online learning management and collaboration environment, and Stanford Syllabus is a central online repository of course syllabi.

Digital Humanities

Academic Computing Services and Stanford Libraries provide extensive digital humanities support.

Digital Language Lab

The Digital Language Lab is Stanford's multilingual computing facility.  Its three teaching spaces support language instruction and also serve as workshop and studio space for foreign language teaching and learning.

iPads for Learning Project

The iPads for Learning initiative is a project of Academic Computing Services (ACS) to provide and investigate the use of iPads in academic contexts. iPads are available for learning and teaching opportunites and faculty can submit proposals for short-term usage (workshops) or for as long as a quarter. 

Multimedia Services

The Meyer Tech Desk provides many services including large-format poster printing; equipment for loan, such as laptops, cameras, and projectors; and consulting support for the Multimedia Studio's digital video editing suites.

Software and Courseware Requests

The availability of software applications on public computers may vary by location. If you have questions about available software, or if you are an instructor with a request for software you would like installed on our public computers, email software@rescomp.stanford.edu. Please allow up to nine weeks for new software requests, which is typically how long it takes us to ensure proper licensing and test for technical feasibility.
