The Office of Information Technology is comprised of four departments — and divisional staff — all under the umbrella of the Vice President for Information Technology. Each area has a different focus, but all provide support to the university community and are actively involved in implementing innovative technology on the hilltop.
We're Here (and There) to Help
When you need help, you need to know where to go — and quickly. We have three offices on campus that provide support to all members of our university community.
The central hub for our support operation, IT Resources encompasses the Moody Hall Help Desk and User Services staff, as well as classroom and computer lab support. IT Resources is often our first line of support, and you'll probably see them if, for example, you:
- have issues with your email or wireless connection
- need help troubleshooting a projector, camera or teacher station in your classroom
- are a faculty or staff member ready to buy a new computer
- notice a computer or printer in a campus lab isn't working properly
Trainings Ready When You Are
All St. Edward's students, faculty and staff have access to the thousands of online training resources LinkedIn Learning has to offer. Sign in with your university username and password and start learning from experts in every field, free of charge and without ever leaving your couch.
Instructional Technology focuses on the teaching and learning experiences at St. Edward's — and how technology can improve both. Come to them for the following resources:
- Help setting up your course in Canvas or using one of our other academic tools
- Help designing your technology-enhanced course or assignment, whether it's face-to-face, hybrid/blended, low-residency or online
- A workspace and a hub for course and assignment creation, staffed with instructional designers
- A digital media space for both students and faculty, staffed with multimedia designers and equipped with rooms for audio and video production
- Technology videos and other how-to and training resources
- Help finding and designing a class for active learning or other specialized learning spaces

A Note About Maintenance
Sometimes the work our teams do requires us to take down certain applications and systems. We try to keep these interruptions confined to planned windows, but sometimes we need to make adjustments. Planned and unplanned work is tracked on our Maintenance Calendar.
