About Us

The Education Office of Information Technology is a small team of information technology professionals dedicated to empowering the science of Education through information technology.

Our Mission: Build and sustain a highly efficient and effective core technology infrastructure in support of College of Education strategic goals.

Overview: Our functions are diverse. We are technical and creative consultants, facilitators, implementers, troubleshooters, presenters, one-on-one trainers, server administrators, and data stewards. We support hundreds computers and mobile devices, along with printers, servers, instructional computing facilities, distance education technologies, web technologies, administrative databases, assessment technologies, and all users and departments and centers within in the College of Education @ Purdue University.  We work closely with faculty and staff members as creative consultants to provide ideas and information about new technology opportunities in education. We continually acquire and evaluate new technologies that can be integrated into learning, research and engagement environments.

Our team provides hardware support for all College of Education computers including: specifications for new equipment, repair of defective equipment, and upgrades for our infrastructure.

Education IT develops and maintains databases for College of Education Administrative and Academic Services areas. We maintain databases and web interfaces for the Office of Field Experiences, the Office of Professional Preparation and Licensure, the Graduate Studies Office, the Teaching Resource Center, the Office of Strategic Assessment and Accreditation, and our own Education IT online help desk and support systems.  Examples of our work include: the online TEP Online Application, the online Student Teaching Application, and the TEP Assessment Portal.

We work closely with the Office of Strategic Assessment and Accreditation to provide technology assistance for the TEP Assessment Portal used by the entire Purdue Teacher Education Program.  The Assessment Portal is used by faculty and administrators to gather and process Key Assessment and Accountability Assessment data, and provide support for data-driven decision making.

We provide full support for College of Education facilities and centers including the Science Education lab, the Educational Technology Research lab, the Psychometric Research lab, the Teaching Resource Center, the Ackerman Center, the Purdue Counseling and Guidance Center, and more.

Education IT supports College of Education videoconferencing equipment and provides training and assistance with central Purdue licensed systems such as Teams, WebEx, and Zoom.  We encourage and support collaborative initiatives in many contexts.
