Get Started

Many instructors at Northwestern are experimenting with new ways to improve teaching and learning in the classroom and virtually through new technologies and tools. Whether it’s developing a full-blown online course or simply becoming more familiar with the Canvas learning management system, there are many opportunities to try new technologies and to connect with others.

Northwestern offers a wealth of opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to get involved with cutting edge digital initiatives on campus and online.
