Instructional Design and Technology Support

Starting summer 2014, UW will support only one Learning Management System: WyoCourses. Users – including faculty, students, and administrators – will have NO access to eCompanion course shells or content after June 30, 2014.

If you have current or previous course materials in eCompanion that you will want access to in the future, now is the time to start retrieving it.

Instructional Design and Technology assists the university’s instructional community with exploration, design, development, and evaluation of computer-derived teaching materials, and with their use via course websites. Our technology lab offers hardware and software for authoring of materials, scanning to digital forms, and other teaching-related tasks. Lab staff are happy to help you explore, choose, and learn the technologies that we support. 

The following two services are especially popular:

  • Course websites: The University of Wyoming supports two systems for creating supplementary course websites: Course Studio and eCompanion. We can help you use these systems or explore other options for web-based teaching. To learn more about the tools and pedagogy of these systems, click Supplemental Course Websites
  • Wyocourses Training: We offer regular workshops for live technical instruction. Click Wyocourses Training for workshop schedules and materials.

Instructors are encouraged to call ahead to make sure necessary equipment and assistance are available for the time they request. 

For additional assistance, drop by our office in Coe 510B Monday, Tuesday and Thursday between 9 am and 1 pm, or contact us to make an appointment.  We can be reached at or via telephone at 766-4814.
