The College has a robust and active campus network. All classrooms, offices and residence hall rooms have network connections. Every student is given a network account and is eligible to use the public computing resources in the library. A student’s network connection provides access to the Internet, network file storage, and printing. Students who bring a computer equipped with an appropriate Ethernet card can connect to the Maryville College network in their residence hall rooms. Wireless network connections are available campus-wide. Students should contact Information Technology department to ensure their computers meet current minimum specifications for connecting to the campus network.
Technology for teaching and learning supports and enhances the curriculum at Maryville College while maintaining the essential character of the liberal arts experience. Faculty members incorporate a variety of technologies into the teaching and learning experience. Many courses are taught in one of 35 multimedia-capable classrooms, and a number of academic departments have discipline-specific computer labs specifically equipped to meet the learning requirements of students in those programs. Other classes are taught in laptop-equipped classrooms and labs, which encourage students to enhance existing computer skills and acquire new ones. Supplemental course websites and on-line submission of written work are common through email and through our virtual learning portal The Tartan.
The mission of the Instructional Technology Department is to contribute to the realization of the college's Vision for Instructional Technology (see below) by providing the faculty with the necessary tools, knowledge, skills, support and opportunities to appropriately use and evaluate instructional technology in teaching and learning.
