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 Discussion
- Panopto/Media Library
- Google Apps
- Google Classroom
- Google Sites
- Adobe Spark
- 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 Brown's Office of Information Technology (OIT). 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 Office of Information Technology (OIT) standards.
