What can the FCTL do for you?

Educational providers are reaching out to many of us to offer free trial periods for their services and products. Some of these are very good offers. Please don’t feel pressured into using a tool that may not provide you with the support needed for student learning. If you have a colleague that’s already using it, that’s great. However, if not, our best advice is keep it simple and use the tools purchased and supported by the university.

Whatever support you need, you can contact the appropriate FCTL team member for solutions.
