Education Technology Services

Kyle Stewart, Manager

Educational Technology Services (ETS) provides the logistical, technical, and professional support for faculty, staff, and students in the use of educational technology. ETS supports the educational technology goals and mission of The University of Texas Tyler through the design and development of educational technology plans, equipment recommendations, and ongoing support.

Production and support services are offered in these major areas: classroom technology, university sponsored events, video production, and video conferencing. A fee is charged to the individual or department for cost of materials consumed or for support personnel after normal operating hours.

Distribution of educational technology equipment for on-campus presentations is also provided at no charge for University-sponsored events. Non-University sponsored events may be assessed a fee for time and materials. Because of the frequency of equipment use, a reservation is required at least two days in advance.
