Learning technology is the "systematic application of a body of knowledge to the design, implementation, management, and evaluation of teaching and learning"
Within the Computing & Information Services, enquiries about learning technologies are usually directed to members of the Learning Technologies Team (LTT). The team can be contacted via the IT Service Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org).
