Welcome to USNH Academic Technology
The USNH Academic Technology Steering Committee (ATSC) was established in 2009 to encourage and support faculty to integrate instructional strategies that incorporate technology and rich media that enhance the teaching and learning. The committee includes faculty members and staff from the Academic Technology units at each of the four USNH institutions: Granite State College, Keene State College, Plymouth State University and the University of New Hampshire.
Projects include the annual Academic Technology Institute and the USNH Open Ed Initiative. The ATSC also recommends the adoption of system-wide technologies such as Zoom (web-conferencing), Kaltura (steaming media server) and Qualtrics (survey tool).
