Instruction and assessment tools

UITS provides the tools and services IU instructors need for instruction and assessment.

Keep teaching, even when you’re apart

Teaching and learning environments have rapidly evolved, and IU has the tools to support you. Although distance and hybrid courses can feel sometimes challenging at first, they also provide an opportunity to re-examine how course content is delivered and structured. With the right tools and technologies, faculty can still deliver exceptional and accessible learning and assessment experiences that support all students.
