  • Facilitate installation, support, and training for students to effectively utilize Google Apps for Education, particularly Google Docs and Google Classroom

  • Facilitate installation, support, and training for faculty to effectively utilize content creation tools integratable with the interactive whiteboards in every classroom.  The goal is that every teacher can deliver a multisensory, accessible curriculum.
