Educational Technology

Educational technology, sometimes referred to as EdTech, is the study and ethical practice of facilitating learning and improving performance by creating, using, and managing appropriate technological processes and resources.

OWU Blackboard

OWU Blackboard Site 

Ohio Wesleyan offers and supports Blackboard, it is used as our official learning management system. Teachers can upload useful resources, take advantage of its online collaboration tools, submit grades, and give feedback using Blackboard.

There is much information and instructions on using Blackboard at OWU available at our Self Help Site.

We are currently using Release 9.1 Service Pack 6, and will be upgrading to Service Pack 14 on May 15.

Winging It

Some of our faculty prefer to do things their own way. While we recommend Blackboard for the convenience of our students, Blackboard doesn't always meet the needs of the teaching/learning situation. There is a page discussing online collaboration resources at our Self Help Site. We can also advise on the best tools for your particular situation.
