Welcome to Digital Initiatives
Digital Initiatives is an expanded unit within the DL&I office comprising of the Digital Education Incubator and Instructional Production Services teams. Our digital learning designers, media producers and project managers support a variety of digital content production and delivery endeavors across BU, from helping launch select pilot projects in emerging technologies to incorporating multimedia assets in residential courses. We are particularly excited to assist with the production and delivery support of large-scale degrees and other innovative programs, such as ones offered in partnership with edX.
Digital Education Incubator
DL&I’s Digital Education Incubator nurtures innovative ideas and approaches in digital education at Boston University through incubating select pilot projects. We have a robust history of supporting experimental projects and emerging technologies, ranging from open online courses and innovations in project-based learning to lifelong learning portals and digital infrastructure for advising and mentoring. We are pleased to offer both funding and development support from project inception to pilot implementation and evaluation.
The Instructional Production Services (IPS) team provides multimedia creation and course design services for BU faculty and staff interested in developing digital or blended learning experiences. IPS currently supports the course production support of BU's edX-related initiatives, educational training programs, and other special digital projects across our campus.
