The UI Support Community for Instructional Technology (SCIT) group meets monthly to provide a venue for anyone who works with instructional technology at the University of Iowa to connect with one another on best practices, emerging trends, and new instructional technology. These technologies include ICON, lecture capture, digital media, student response systems, and other technologies used for instruction. Meetings are announced on the Office of Teaching, Learning, and Technology (OTLT) website and the OTLT instructional tech update.

See a list of all enterprise instructional technology tools. Attendance is open to all UI people using or supporting instructional technology.

The SCIT Core Team, comprised of representation from central and distributed IT, meets once a month to go over updates on software, strategy for new or large changes in software, and to offer feedback on timing of upgrades and communication.
