The Academic Technology Lab (ATL) is a resource center for faculty, instructors and TAs interested in using multimedia to improve teaching, learning and research at Stanford.
ATL consultants provide training and support for the development of instructional materials including interactive presentations, videos, DVDs and Web sites. They also assist faculty who want to integrate technology tools into their courses, such as CourseWork (Stanford's learning management system).
The ATL has a wide array of equipment and software to support Academic Computing projects including video and audio capture and podcasting.
Recent ATL projects include:
- Classics 130 From Homer to Hip Hop classroom capture and media encoding for video distribution on iTunesU and CourseWork.
- The ATL also provides support for the production of Associate Professor of English, Nicholas Jenkins's, Wave poetry podcast in the ATL recording studio.
- In addition, the ATL has collaborated with Mark Feldman (Program in Writing and Rhetoric) and his students to implement student-written audio guides at the Cantor Arts Center.
