The following represent major projects UTLT sub-committees have completed. They are ordered from newest to oldest.
The Digital Ecosystem subcommittee developed the Learning Tech website, which is an innovative, searchable catalog of tools. The catalog provides vital information about the tool’s pedagogical purposes, functions, availability, and support options. Each tool is described in the context of its practical applications for teaching and learning, from fostering a range of learning activities and improving assessment and evaluation processes to encouraging increased student engagement and collaboration. Tools can be rated and requested directly through the site.
Status: on-going development

Status: completed but accepting new stories
The Assessment & Reporting subcommittee gathered information from individuals involved in the UTLT committee, surveys of faculty (n=223) and students (n=515), and data from educational technology tools and LMSs to better understand the current digital ecosystem landscape.

- Learning Management Systems (LMSs): Collab, Canvas, Brightspace, Blackboard
