Educational technology overview

The CED makes several educational technologies and digital tools available, which you can use for both in- and out-of-class activities.

The CED makes a variety of educational technologies available, which you can use to design the right educational mix of learning activities in your course. In this way, you can combine different types of in- and out-of-class activities.

Identify your educational needs

Consider the following when choosing a educational technology:

  1. Start by identifying the learning outcomes of your course
  2. Plan activities that realise the outcomes
  3. Define what properties an educational technology should have for the activities to be carried out
  4. Seek inspiration from colleagues, at AU Educate, or contact the CED to get the optimal use of the educational technology

What educational technologies are available?

You and your students have access to a number of technologies, several of which are built into AU's learning management system, Brightspace.

The CED has entered a contract with the suppliers so that both data security and the GDPR are in order. This concerns the technologies below in which the CED also offers educational and technical support.

Brightspace

Brightspace is AU’s learning management system (LMS). The system houses a multitude of functions to facilitate teaching, which ensures progression between different learning activities, for example, with varying in-class and out-of-class activities and different forms of feedback.
