OEIT Launches Visual Arts and Media for Teaching and Learning Portal

By Violeta Ivanova, Visualization and Media Consultant, OEIT, and Instructor, Edgerton Center

The Office of Educational Innovation and Technology has launched the Visual Arts and Media for Teaching and Learning web portal at:


The new website provides resources on the application of digital arts, computer graphics, and multimedia to enhance teaching and learning, including a gallery of educational media projects and initiatives, an up to date training schedule, and a library of visual media materials for the natural sciences, humanities, and other disciplines.

OEIT enables educational innovation through the creative use of visual media. We offer training to the MIT community in creating, accessing, analyzing, evaluating, and integrating in the curriculum digital content that is aesthetically pleasing and pedagogically effective. OEIT staff teach for-credit academic subjects (in collaboration with the Edgerton Center) as well as guest lectures, tutorials, and IAP sessions on video production and other visual media authoring. We also provide expert support for MIT instructors who develop new academic subjects that integrate digital media in the curriculum (in collaboration with the Office for Faculty Support).

We invite MIT faculty, students, and all other members of the community to explore the new website and we welcome suggestions for additional resources to include in the online library (http://mitoeitmedia.wordpress.com/contact/).
