The University of Iowa

The university supports many technologies that can assist with remote teaching. Most are easily accessible with an internet connection, but others require some setup. Before you begin teaching remotely, understand what you'll need to access computing resources. Test your access to these applications from off-campus before you plan to work remotely.

Here is an overview of selected technologies that will assist you in common learning activities.  The full list of software supported by the Office of Teaching, Learning and Technology is available here:
