Academic technology projects produced by ETS support a wide range of teaching, learning, and research activities. We plan for, implement, and sustain academic technology services and initiatives in close collaboration with Tufts’ academic deans, faculty, and students across Tufts schools, academic programs, IT colleagues, and fellow academic resource organizations. Additionally, our technical services team designs, develops, and integrates academic technology applications to enable teaching, learning, and scholarly collaboration.
