OIS is dedicated to providing services that support the school's commitment to education. In most cases, these services are provided free-of-charge. Services include the following:
Maintain the Multimedia Lab for faculty and staff use. Multimedia Lab services include
Training workshops in multimedia development
Equipment loans including LCD projectors, digital camcorders, tripods
General support for multimedia projects (PowerPoint presentations, scanning, image editing, etc.)
Create medical illustrations for curricular use
Create multimedia curricular projects integrating both web and video
Consult and advise faculty on curricular projects and emerging technologies
Note: These services used to be offered by OIS' Educational Technology Group (ETG). Although the level of services and support hasn't changed, we have decided to discontinue the ETG name for overall office consistency.
