Current TLED Projects and Initiatives
The purpose of this plan is to define and organize the implementation plan for the Ad Astra Platinum Analytics tool, including IT system integration, system documentation, training, business procedures, and data analysis.
Austin Community College has been recognized as an Adobe Creative Campus based on a strong commitment to digital literacy in higher education and valued thought leadership with Adobe.
The Digital Fellowship is designed for faculty who are exploring a new technology for integration in their curriculum. This program provides faculty with resources and support to research the technology, design how the technology will integrate into the curriculum, implement the changes and technology into the course, and reflect on the successes/failures of integration.
Each Fall semester Austin Community College employees from across the district gather at General Assembly to hear key college updates. This event helps connect the dots between an employee’s daily work and the strategic plan of the College. All ACC faculty and staff are invited to register and attend.
During the 2018-2019 academic year, the Digital Fellows Program, facilitated by the Teaching & Learning Excellence Division, implemented a pilot program of faculty and student use of iPads in their courses. Upon the conclusion of the Digital Fellows iPad pilot, the steering team decided to halt expansion and support of the initiative for the fall 2019 semester, with the intent of relaunching the initiative in spring 2020.
Austin Community College, particularly the Teaching & Learning Excellence Division, utilizes and maintains for the College a number of streaming media and video archive platforms. The overall cost of the product, taking into consideration financial, personnel, equipment, and training resources, increases exponentially as the College maintains responsibility for platforms that provide duplicated functionality. During the Fall 2019 semester, TLED will work to consolidate the number of supported platforms for the purposes of streaming media and video archive use cases.
