Academic Technology

Innovative, user-friendly systems, committed to Georgetown's scholarly academic tradition and solutions for our ever-evolving challenges.

UIS maintains a large selection of tools and services available for teaching and learning.  

Tools such as Canvas (learning management system), Panopto (lecture capture), Zoom (Web conferencing), and more are available for use by faculty in the classroom. The Educational Technologies (EdTech) group administers and maintains academic online enterprise-level services for use by faculty, staff, and students specifically for teaching, learning, and research at Georgetown University.

Our Research Technologies group helps Georgetown’s research community – on both Main and Medical Center campuses – implement strategies and projects in a number of areas including research collaboration, grants and contracts, advanced research computing, research regulatory and compliance administrative systems, and virtual servers. 

UIS is also committed to maintaining the continuity of academic instruction in case of weather, illness, or other circumstance that precipitates the need for instruction to be conducted remotely.
