Faculty Toolbox


Whether you are a new faculty member at RIC or a seasoned veteran, the pages on this Web site will be useful. Think of the Toolbox as one stop shopping for technology information at RIC. The Toolbox explains how to obtain an email address, maps classroom technology and wireless networking to campus buildings and provides detailed whitepapers and videos on Enterprise software including, Blackboard, Microsoft Office and SharePoint, and EMS.

Most of the information here could be located by searching through the RIC Web site, but Toolbox is designed to aggregate information so when you want to learn about teaching technology at RIC, you know where to go. As technology changes, these pages will also change.
