As you consider the appropriate tools and technologies to meet your course objectives, we recommend that you visit the Supported Software Guide for a list of ECU-supported software and the Educational Technology page. In addition, contact Distributed IT support in your college for the availability of discipline specific software.
If you determine that there is not an existing university-supported tool to meet your instructional needs, and you are considering implementing an online (e.g. cloud based) solution, you need to be aware that ECU data cannot be stored external to the university network (in the "cloud") without the proper authorization and approval of the department head, data owner, and CIO (Chief Information Officer). See Cloud Computing and ECU Data for more information.
To pursue a university contract for a cloud hosted system, you must work with the following four campus units for assessment and approval.
ADA is applicable in all situations; however you may not need to seek additional approval from Materials Management and/or the University Registrar in the following situations.
