Here are various valuable tools and services you may find helpful in your role as Department Chair. While many other technology services and tools are available, some of the most common offerings Department Chairs find useful in their day-to-day tasks are below.

Faculty/Staff Technology Guide

The Faculty/Staff Guide is a curated list of technologies specifically focused on popular technologies utilized by Elon’s faculty and staff. Department chairs and program assistants should use this as a starting point to explore available technologies at Elon.

Service Offerings

Beyond the Faculty/Staff Technology Guide, another part of our website that you may find helpful as a chair is our service offerings page, which groups services into categories such as communication and collaboration, administrative systems, and instructional technologies. If you, or a faculty member, are looking for a technology solution but need clarification on what IT offers, this is a great place to start.

Other Tools

Beyond what you’ll find by exploring the Faculty/Staff Guide and Service Offerings, the following tools were also identified by fellow chairs as some of their ‘go-to’ sites and tools. Many of these tools are provided by others throughout the University and may not be represented on our IT site.
