Teaching Tools for Instructors

Here you will find links to information on some popular tools and services used by College of Engineering instructors in their teaching. Some of the tools listed below are not officially licensed or supported at U-M, but have come highly recommended by faculty we work with across the College.

Nexus, the College’s online and professional education program, is also well qualified to support faculty with online teaching tools. Nexus can offer expertise for classes that involve remote students including video capture, managing an online classroom, and creating assessments.

If you use a tool in your course that you believe would be beneficial to other College of Engineering instructors, please let us know.
