Faculty who have questions about using technology in their teaching or research are encouraged to contact their Academic Technology Consultant; see the table below.
The Consultants are skilled in technologies that can enhance in-class time, course assignments and projects, data collection and analysis, etc. They offer individual consultation, provide instruction to classes or small groups, and help develop useful learning tools. They also work closely with the Library's subject librarians, the Center for Community Engagement, the Writing and Q Centers, and others to support instruction and research.
The IT Service Desk at AskIT@amherst.edu or x2526 is the best way to get answers to questions about your office computer, printing, email, or common applications like Microsoft Office. You may also get help with the Moodle learning management system, other web sites, specialized software like Mathematica, etc. If necessary your queries will be forwarded to the relevant Academic Technology Consultant, who each have areas of technical expertise.
