Instructional Design and Technology (IDT)


The Instructional Design and Technology unit merges instructional design, technology, and best-practice pedagogies to help faculty create learning environments where students and instructors can thrive and succeed. Our lab offers hardware and software for authoring of materials, scanning to digital forms, and other teaching-related tasks. Popular services include the following:

Production Services and Assistance In our lab, we consult with and assist faculty and their student assistants with digital audio and video production as well as digital scanning of 35mm slide film. In addition, we provide DVD and CD duplication and assist with archiving and repurposing of instructional media (VHS to DVD, for example). For more information email Phineas Kelly.

Lecture-Capture and Classroom Response Systems We help instructors integrate best-practice pedagogies with live or on-demand, server-based delivery of video and audio streams using the My WyoCast lecture-capture system ( We assist with classroom response systems, for example, iClickers and PollEverywhere. For more information email Phineas Kelly.

MultiMedia Workstation We provide training and support to help instructors develop rich media content for their courses on our faculty multimedia workstation. Make an appointment with Phineas Kelly for help creating images, audio, video and mobile content for WyoCourses and beyond.
