Faculty can browse the Office Depot online catalog at for specific items, but please ask your faculty secretary to place your order to take advantage of the discounts.

Classroom Technology

All classrooms at SVSU are equipped with projection systems, and most have smart or mini podiums that include PCs, DVD players, VCRs, document cameras, Internet access, and data projectors. Classrooms with basic technology packages have projection systems and Internet access, but instructors must bring laptops. (Laptops and other equipment can be checked out of the ITD Lab for instructional purposes.) If you have problems with the technology during class, you may call the instructional technology office using the classroom phones. The phone number is posted in the rooms.

Outlook (Email)

Faculty and staff (as well as students) at SVSU use the Outlook email system. All faculty are expected to check their Email accounts regularly because the University email system is the primary means of communication for students, faculty, and administration.

Canvas Learning Management System

Canvas is a learning management system used at SVSU . Instructors can organize their classes and class content in Canvas so that students can find materials they need quickly and easily. Canvas also lends itself well to making classes more collaborative and engaging through tools, discussions, and media sharing.

Personal Web Space

Faculty have access to personal web space where they may develop and post personal web pages.

Office Computers & Software

Computers in faculty offices are on a (roughly) four-year replacement cycle. Printers and other peripherals are not part of that cycle and are the responsibility of the departments or colleges. Upgrades in software can be ordered using a standard purchase requisition form. Depending on the license agreements, there may be costs associated with upgrades, which are borne by the departments. If you have special hardware or software needs, contact Mike Holliday (7140) for assistance.

Wireless Access

Wireless access is available across campus. For information or assistance on accessing the wireless network, contact the ITS Support Center at x4225.
