The mission of the ITL is to help the faculty of UIC make use of instructional technology and Web-based solutions to enhance teaching and learning for both traditional on-campus courses and distance education.

The ITL is designed for use by UIC faculty and computer support staff to develop or evaluate the integration of computer technology in the curriculum. The ITL also serves as a test bed for new technology applications in computing and education.

The ITL is designed to help both, novice and seasoned computer users: from creating your first home page, using PowerPoint, scanning a picture, or selecting the appropriate instructional system, to authoring sophisticated interactive hypermedia, incorporating digital video and audio in your class materials, creating interactive CD-ROMs and DVDs, or exploring Internet 2 videoconferencing solutions.
