Supported Learning Technologies

The Learning Technology team supports using teaching tools for fully online, blended, and in-class learning.

We provide:

  • Information about the latest teaching tools
  • Integration of educational technology into courses
  • Workshops on mycourselink and eLearning
  • Assistance for faculty and staff as they create online/blended course content and interactive learning strategies
  • Troubleshooting and support for issues with online course spaces

For help with the technologies listed in this section, contact us (807.346.8010 ext. 7730 or mycourselink@lakeheadu.ca) to explore the possibilities of the online environment!

The Education Library maintains a list of educational technology tools and applications for K-12 classrooms that may be useful in other learning environments.  Please note, the university does not have licenses for these applications.

Other Third-Party Tools

Lakehead University supports several enterprise cloud services including the ones listed in this section.  For a list of all institutionally supported services and applications, visit the institution’s online Service Catalogue.  Lakehead also recognizes that many other free or for-cost applications are available to support and enhance innovation in teaching and learning. Since some of these systems may require the disclosure of personal information to operate properly, university members considering adopting such applications must complete and submit a form for privacy and security review of prospective cloud services contracts (Word document). Please note, reviews can take up to 6 months to complete.  Refer to Lakehead’s Access to Information and Protection of Privacy webpage for full details.  Lakehead University staff will not be able to provide technical support or training on third-party applications that are not part of the institution's centrally supported services; however, instructors approved to use other third-party services are encouraged to utilize the vendor resources to help support themselves and their learners.

Technology in Physical Spaces

The Technology Services Multimedia team supports a wide range of technologies in physical classroom spaces on both campuses. To learn more, visit the Multimedia Services page.
