Instructional Technologies and Multimedia Services
Instructional Technologies and Multimedia Services (ITMMS) personnel are devoted to supporting an environment that promotes quality teaching and learning and that increases access to quality education.
We have supported learning at a distance in our interactive video classrooms since 1995 and in web-enhanced and online courses since 2003. Allegany College of Maryland currently offers eight online programs: Applied Technical Studies, Business Administration, Computer Science, Criminology, General Studies, History, Nursing (LPN to RN), and Social Sciences. ITMMS staff assist with development of online courses and administration of our online learning management system, BlackboardTM, and provide training and support to faculty and students in the use of BlackboardTM.
ITMMS staff provide audio, video, and photographic production services to enhance teaching and learning in traditional and online classes. Services include assistance with podcasts and video tutorial productions, on-site and remote field production, and green-screen technology production. ITMMS staff also produce and provide programming for Allegany County's public, education and government television channel, PEG.
ITMMS staff maintain and support instructional classroom technologies, including interactive whiteboards, LCD projectors, document cameras, and audience response systems. We maintain an interactive video classroom at each of our three campuses and provide technical assistance during all classes and meetings held in these classrooms.
