Learning Tools

UW-Stout's extensive technology infrastructure provides access to a variety of resources from virtually anywhere. The learning tools support academic programs and UW-Stout's digital learning environment. Instructors are encouraged to make the most of currently available educational technologies, in and out of the classroom. LTS can provide insight on instructional technologies, their benefits and challenges, and how each can be used in an educational setting.
