CourseWork and Stanford Syllabus
Academic Computing Services has a Digital Humanities Specialist program to support faculty creation of digital scholarly media projects through a proposal process.
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.
The iPads for Learning initiative is a trial program by Academic Computing Services (ACS) and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) to provide iPads for use in academic classes or workshops. 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.
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 email@example.com. 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.
