Technology-Enhanced Learning

The Technology-Enhanced Learning group (TEL) provides vital resources to integrate educational and information technologies into the academic environment. TEL is dedicated to helping USC faculty, students, and staff explore and implement technologies that promote learner-centered education on campus and in distance-learning settings.


TEL initiatives encourage innovation through collaboration. TEL’s goal is to enhance the mobility and flexibility of the learning process and enable greater responsiveness to the needs of a new generation of learners.
