Our team of Instructional Designers and Technologists regularly review tech tools for digital teaching and learning. Below is a developing list of tools that DLD either supports or has otherwise vetted with Brown's procurement team to ensure our learning communities have a safe, accessible, and high quality experience.
- Ed Discussions

- Google Apps

- Online Course Reserves (OCRA)
These are Approved tools that are purchased centrally by Brown. DLD, in partnership with the IT Service Center, provides support and training.
- ESRI Storymaps
- McGraw Hill Connect
- Norton InQuizitive
- H5P (Pilot)
The terms of service, privacy, and security have been reviewed and approved by Computing & Information Services (CIS). These tools are commonly purchased by individual departments or instructors, so support is provided by the vendor.
- LockDown Browser (Respondus)
DLD does not recommend using these tools at this time. The terms of service, privacy, security and/or accessibility of these tools do not currently meet Computing & Information Services (CIS) standards.
