Educational Technology

The Educational Technology (ET) group within IRET provides support for all forms of classroom and distance learning technology. The group manages the IUSM Angel server, daly.medicine.iu.edu, 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, and is closely integrated with other IUSM online services, such as those provided by the Medical Library, and the pedagogical services provided by Medical Education and Curricular Affairs (MECA).

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 www.medlib.iupui.edu/techsupport/vc/. Using the ET equipment you can be connected to IUSM centers throughout the state, to all IU campuses, Clarian network sites, public Project Athena sites throughout the state, and Internet 2 sites throughout the world.

ET provides consulting on educational technology projects, including the technical information necessary for use of the Angel server for distance learning, and classroom design for optimal use of technology. See the et.medicine.iu.edu Web page for detailed information.
