Technology Pilots

We’re always on the lookout for new tools that will enhance teaching and learning at FSU. When evaluating new academic technologies, we strive to ensure that a particular tool meets the needs of campus stakeholders. Faculty and staff play an important role in pilot testing technologies and providing feedback on their experience. Feedback helps us make informed decisions about the adoption and implementation of teaching and learning technologies. Stay tuned to this page for information on active and upcoming technology pilots.
