    I really like the idea of creating a course enabling faculty to explore new tools. Providing faculty information about accessibility, pricing, and trial period of each tool, as well as some ideas for how to use the tools to achieve pedagogical goals could prove very beneficial. Not only would this resource make it easier for faculty to make decisions about new instructional technology adoption, it should also increase appropriate instructional technology utilization. I really like the idea of bringing to faculty members’ awareness the accessibility limits for each tool, as this is an important component of whether or not to adopt new tools.

    Have you had much feedback about the “Smorgasbord of Technology” course from faculty members?
