Providing Instructional Technology Services to Georgia Perimeter College faculty and staff.

The Instructional Design Labs offer faculty a place to experiment with technology and to design innovative instructional materials. We maintain specialized hardware and software to give faculty the opportunity to experiment with instructional technology tools and develop new forms of instructional content. In the IDL, faculty can: build web pages, practice with a Sympodium, create videos, use a scanner, or just brainstorm with an Instructional Technologist.
