Instructional Technology Support
Monmouth University fully supports the use of technology in teaching/learning through the comprehensive services of Information Management. Faculty are encouraged to integrate a variety of technologies into their courses and are provided necessary training and support to do so. Beyond making use of our learning management system for content presentation and online participation, many employ a variety of Web-based tools to increase student collaboration, participation, and engagement. In addition, the Monmouth University Library catalog and digital databases are available online, as are many instructional materials used in individual courses.
The University has a fully networked and wireless-enabled campus with over 1,000 computers available to students in various lab configurations including Windows, Macintosh, and Unix/Linux. A comprehensive complement of software is available throughout campus in these labs, and course-specific software is made available in departmental computing labs.
All students are provided with an official e-mail account and storage for course-related files and Web pages. The Student Technology Assistant Program (STAP) provides students with the opportunity to learn about current technology, while earning cash and boosting their résumé. Each semester, approximately forty (40) undergraduate and graduate students from all majors join the program in one of several different positions. STAP members can be found working in the University’s open computer labs, at the Student Help Desk, with multimedia equipment, and troubleshooting problems with computer hardware and software.
