Learning Technologies

Teaching and Learning Services supports instructors, TAs and staff in the effective use of educational technologies through individual consultations and custom workshops. We also pilot and select new tools to enhance current offerings available to instructors, Teaching Assistants, and students.

Educational Technologies to Support Teaching and Learning

Click here to view a visual depiction of educational technologies to support teaching and learning.

The tools are organized in 4 "quadrants":

  • Content: create, share, and curate course materials

  • Course Management: manage and organize your class

  • Assessment: assess learning, receive and provide feedback

  • Interaction: enhance engagement and collaboration

The tools are laid out within three "rings":

  • First ring: tools available within myCourses (McGill's learning management system)

  • Second ring: tools outside of myCourses that are provided and supported by McGill

  • Beyond the second ring: tools not supported by McGill that you may consider using

McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. McGill honours, recognizes and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which we meet today.
