Exploring Tech Tools and Innovation

The digital learning environment offers unique opportunities for student interaction, engagement and access, and Digital Learning leverages a bevy of cutting-edge instructional tools that adapt and personalize learning for students, establish students as creators of knowledge and provide you with meaningful data on usage and student success


Digital Learning offers several tech tools that can help you and your students collaborate, create community and practice skills. Our tools are available to all instructors at the UA. To learn more about interactive video players, online proctoring, visual discussion boards and digital badging, please visit the ODL Tools website.

Our partners at OIA and UITS also support a variety of different tech tools. To learn more, visit OIA or UITS.

If you’re unsure of where to start, please talk to you instructional designer about which tools make the most sense for your class.

Training & Support

Interested in learning more about the tools we support? Attend one or more of our training workshops offered throughout the academic year. For more details about upcoming events, visit our Events Calendar.

While we aim to provide training and documentation to empower you to integrate technology into your course, we know sometimes things don’t go as smoothly as planned. For direct support, please contact us through our support page on ODL Tools.


We keep our eyes on emerging educational technologies, but we also want to hear what interests you. If you want to learn about a new technology, are using a tool in your course that you think could be useful for others, or are curious about how to solve a teaching and learning challenge, please talk to us. Our instructional technologists and learning innovation designers evaluate new technologies and run tech pilots throughout the year, and we are happy to work with you on tech innovations. Learn more about our current pilots and how you might get involved by visiting Innovation.
