The Office of Instructional Technology (OIT) provides a broad range of support to faculty and students related to instructional technology and intellectual property.

This includes overseeing Riverland’s online courses and instructional management system (D2L Brightspace), ITV and electronic classrooms, and training related to these, along with such services as lecture capture (MediaSpace), clickers (TurningPoint), and plagiarism detection (TurnItIn).
