This blog is produced and maintained by the Instructional Design, Engagement, and Support (IDEAS) Team at the University of Massachusetts Amherst for instructors who use technology in their teaching.

We started publishing in Spring 2007 as TeachOIT and in Spring 2015 we moved to blogs.umass.edu/instruct and changed our name to Instruct @ UMass.

Currently, this blog is used for announcements about technologies for teaching and learning which are provided through the university—our learning management system, blogging platform, lecture recording & video hosting, audience response (clickers), and video conferencing systems.

For more information on IT services for teaching and learning, visit Technology for Teaching & Learning.
