We also have a scanning equipment and several tools to digitally record demonstrations and lectures* including an Elmo document camera and several iPad Pro tablets for use both in the space and on location.

DotED 3.0


In Summer of 2015 we launched our complete redesign and restructuring of DotED, updating the version of Moodle it was based on and transforming it from a part of Inside ArtCenter to a stand-alone system solely dedicated to learning. This summer, we have built on that successful transition with an upgrade to Moodle 3, complete with improvements all activities and resources as well as a redesigned interface. This version of DotED works very similarly to the previous version and there is updated documentation at http://citl.artcenter.edu/dtl/faculty/
