IMLearning And Excellence In Teaching
iMLearning transforms the teaching and learning experiences for faculty and students.
Shenandoah University’s Integrated Mobile Technology (iMLearning) program puts powerful, state-of-the-art Apple® computer technology into the hands of our students and full-time faculty, creating an interactive and information-rich learning environment focused on exploration and discovery. The iMLearning program establishes a common technology platform across campus to increase and enhance the learning opportunities available to all students. Through iMLearning, Shenandoah students will be better prepared with the technology and learning skills necessary for their future careers.
All incoming full-time, undergraduate students will receive an environmentally friendly 13-inch Touch Bar MacBook Pro with Retina display and an iPad Pro 9.7 (32GB, WiFi) with an Apple Pencil. These mobile tools allow students to access the university’s academic resources and library services wherever they are and whenever they need them. Students will also learn about campus events, create their own videos and participate in social networking. A virtual Microsoft Windows platform is available to students who need to use Windows for their course of study. iMLearning transforms the teaching and learning experiences for faculty and students. Professors can provide online resources to deliver academic content, while making the most of class time to interact with students. This way, precious classroom time is devoted to sharing insights and hands-on learning experiences. In turn, students can research topics, prepare assignments, take quizzes, submit papers, communicate with professors and classmates and participate in online discussions. Software that supports collaborative work helps to create a learning community that results in deeper learning while preparing students for the teamwork required in today’s modern workplace.
