The Technology Enhanced Learning group provides strategic leadership in the area of academic technology at the University of Minnesota. Our goal is to enhance teaching, learning, and outreach activities on campus, around the state, and online.
Technology-enhanced learning (TEL) encompasses the broad range of experiences and environments in which technology is used to enhance teaching and learning. Technologies are relentlessly and seamlessly merging, and the lines separating the traditional classroom, the technology-enhanced classroom, and distance learning are disappearing rapidly. TEL initiatives use technology-based resources--video, audio, images, simulations, and library tools--to enrich the learning environment and to extend it from the classroom to the residence hall, the home, the workplace, and the mall.
