Student Technology Assistant Program

STAs provide one-on-one training sessions to faculty members on the use of technology in their courses. Training sessions take place at the instructor's convenience, in terms of pace and time. STAs provide those sessions via Zoom. 

STAs are available at the Center for Learning and Teaching Sunday through Thursday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm to train and assist AUC faculty members with the following tools:

  • Blackboard 
  • Moodle
  • Lecture Capture Software (Panopto)
  • Zoom
  • Google Apps
  • Microsoft Office
  • Nearpod
  • Wordpress
  • Hypothes.is

 

Important Notes

  • STAs do not provide pedagogical consultations with regard to the application of the above technologies in the classroom. For this, faculty members should meet with CLT staff members or attend the relevant workshops.
  • Student Technology Assistants will offer technical assistance and training as well as help troubleshoot technology-related issues regarding the specified tools. STAs may not, however, upload, create, or delete materials on your Blackboard or Moodle courses. Faculty requiring this level of service should contact Instructional Technology Manager, Maha Shawky.
  • In order to provide the best support, faculty members are advised to narrow down the queries they have in regards to the tools with which they need assistance.
