Technology Resources

The Office of Digital Education partners with faculty to design and deliver online learning experiences across CU Denver and CU Anschutz using a wide range of technologies and resources. Our team of Instructional Designers and consultants can coach you on implementing these technologies and resources in your online courses through sound pedagogy and a focus on the learning experience of our students. Learn about the technologies and resources available to you as an online teacher below.

Whether you teach online or face-to-face, our team can coach you on implementing technology in your classroom. Learn more about the technologies and resources we have available below.


Available Technology

Canvas Logo


There are a number of resources available from Canvas directly to support faculty AND students. The Canvas guides provide you step-by-step directions for doing just about anything in Canvas. Share the student guide with students to help them navigate the platform. 

TechSmith Logo


TechSmith Relay, Camtasia and Snagit allow faculty to easily create interactive videos for their courses. TechSmith Relay is a desktop lecture capture and video hosting solution with embedded quizzing and analytics, which has a deep Canvas integration that is available for students, staff and faculty at CU Denver. Faculty may also download Camtasia and/or Snagit to edit and add assets to their video presentations.

Zoom Logo


Zoom is the university's web conference software. Faculty, students and staff are provisioned with pro licenses. Zoom can be accessed by going to and entering your university credentials. 



Proctorio is a service for proctoring online exams delivered in Canvas. Using Proctorio, you can identify who is taking a test and enforce rules and monitor behavior of test-takers. For example, perhaps you want to prevent students from launching other applications or accessing certain resources during an exam.


Proctorio works in conjunction with the Chrome web browser, which is available on every desktop operating system, including PC and Mac. See the guide for installation instructions. 

Creation Station

Creation Station

The Creation Station is your self-service resource for creating high-quality videos with just the push of a button. The Creation Station is fully outfitted with professional lighting, a video camera, a backdrop and a microphone that all work simultaneously by inserting a flash drive and hitting a button. Seriously, it is that simple!

Online Faculty Grants

The Office of Digital Education offers grant opportunities for faculty who teach online and programs that would like to develop or redevelop an online program. Grant options will be updated as new opportunities become available.
