Educational Technology

The Education Technology (ET) group with IRET provides support for all forms of classroom and distance learning technology. The group manages the IUSM ANGEL server at daly.medicine.iu.edu. This server is a Web-based course management and collaboration portal for IUSM faculty and students. The ANGEL system provides a flexible way to provide student access to resources from home. It is closely integrated with other IUSM online services, such as those provided by the Medical Library, and the pedagogical services provided by the Medical Education and Curricular Affairs (MECA). ET also provides audio streamed recordings of lectures in the major classrooms.

The ET group provides videoconferencing services and video streaming in classrooms and throughout the medical campus, as well as consulting throughout IUSM. The group has videoconferencing rooms in the library, as well as a mobile videoconferencing unit, that can be scheduled by calling (317) 274-1531 or using the online Web form at:

The ET videoconferencing equipment connects students to IUSM centers throughout the state, all IU campuses, Clarian network sites, public Project Athena sites throughout the state, and Internet sites throughout the world.

ET provides consulting on educational technology projects, including the technical information necessary for use of the ANGEL server for distance leaning, and classroom design for optimal use of technology. See daly.medicine.iu.edu for detailed information.
