    We provide support for a variety of web-based software including virtual simulations and related utilities, online course materials, communication and collaboration software, electronic textbooks and more. We also provide support for PowerPoint presentation software.
  4. Survey and Data Collection
    Surveys are created using an online program called SelectSurveyASP. This program allows for easy survey creation, collection, and data analysis. It also offers seamless exporting of data into common formats such as SPSS and CSV.This service is perfect for classes that require a research component such as several Senior Seminar classes. Also, several non-academic departments currently use this online survey package. These departments include, Student Labor Office, People Services, and Institutional Research.
