There are many digital tools available for use in instruction and research. This list represents the applications that are supported at Geneseo (by CIT, Research Technology, and Milne Library) and most used by faculty. For support with any of the tools below, submit a request in the CIT Service Desk.

For things not on the list: we are often asked, "Can I try this new tool with my class?" The answer is a resounding yes, however we may be learning along with you, the tool may not work well with our environment, and flexibility in use will be important. Please contact us if you have any questions.


Oops, it seems that you need to place a table or a macro generating a table within the Table Filter macro.
