Academic Technology Innovation

Our Academic Technology Innovation (ATI) unit maintains a robust and reliable academic technology infrastructure for both online and blended teaching and learning at NC State, including enterprise, customized deployments of synchronous and asynchronous learning management systems, enterprise lecture-capture technologies, and in-house developed instructional tools and interactive media that address specific teaching and learning needs. ATI offers professional development opportunities and pedagogical assistance focused on teaching and learning with technology and learning technology support for NC State faculty and staff. ATI also provides web and video-based production assistance for the development of online and distance education and web-enhanced courses, video-based classroom services, and design leadership, project coordination, communication and brand management across multifaceted DELTA initiatives.

Marketing and Partnership Development

The DELTA Marketing and Partnership Development (MPD) unit designs and implements strategic distance education marketing initiatives, conducts market research and builds collaboration among all colleges and units on campus, as well as with other University of North Carolina system institutions and other key partners. By using sophisticated search engine optimization (SEO) techniques and marketing strategies, MPD has achieved top program visibility without costly pay-per-click, cost-per-click or cost-per-impressions advertising. The combination of marketing and partnership development has helped build awareness, both internally as well as externally, that NC State’s online distance education and learning technologies are among the top tier programs in the world.
