About Information Technology
We value our role in the Skidmore community. Our mission is to work in partnership with members of the community to empower our collective use of information technologies. Our goal is to provide excellent technology leadership, support and service in fulfilling Skidmore’s mission and Strategic Plan.
We provide support and assistance for students, faculty and staff at Skidmore College. IT consists of five divisions: Learning Experience Design & Digital Scholarship Support (LEDS), User Services, Enterprise Systems, Media Services and Technical Services.
Learning Experience Design & Digital Scholarship Support (LEDS)
Beth DuPont, Director x5917
Learning Experience Design & Digital Scholarship Support (LEDS) assists faculty, staff and students in developing their technology literacy skills, by offering individual and group instruction on a wide range of software applications (E.g., Blackboard, WordPress, iMovie, Adobe Creative Suite, etc.). LEDS provides the necessary scaffolding for faculty and students as they learn to create digital media (Ex: video projects, podcasting, etc.) and engage in immersive technologies to achieve course goals and objectives.
