The Division of Information Technology provides technology solutions and enables business process improvements that support teaching, learning and administrative functions at the University.

The Technology Support Center (TSC) staff are the first point of contact for technology services for the University community. They answer technology questions and assist in resolving requests, such as password resets, Royal Card support and services, wireless connectivity setup on devices, and exam scanning.

The TSC, in collaboration with the office of Academic and Media Servicesalso assists faculty with University software, systems, and other technology equipment in various classrooms and conference rooms.

For immediate classroom support, call the Technology Support Center at 570-941-4357.

Classroom Database

There are over 200 mediated spaces on campus. These rooms are considered smart classrooms, conference/seminar rooms, auditoriums, group study spaces and recording spaces. These rooms provide the ability for faculty and presenters to use and display various forms of media. Each classroom is typically equipped with a computer, projector, screen, document camera, speakers and a control system.  The conference/seminar rooms are typically equipped with a flat screen display and connectivity for laptops.

Campus Wireless Network

ROYALSECURE is our campus-wide secured wireless network. It is accessible to students, faculty and staff.

Exam Scanning Services

Exam scanning services are offered through our Technology Support Center located on the first floor, Alumni Memorial Hall. Exams may be left with full-time staff members or placed in the secure Exam Scanning Drop box. Exams will be scanned only when full-time staff is available. An exam Scanning Request Form is necessary with every submission.

Lecture Capture: Panopto

Panopto is a presentation-capture system that allows instructors to record what happens in their classrooms and make it available digitally. The Panopto recording interface is only available through the D2L learning management system. Faculty can use Panopto on a classroom computer to capture interactions, lectures, presentations, student demonstrations and role-playing scenarios. It can also be used on a faculty member’s computer to create learning modules to deliver ancillary content or pre-lecture information.

The Information Security Office serves as the University’s resource for guidance on information security compliance. The office oversees information security policies, procedures and standards that ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of University data and information. They also offer security services such as consulting, auditing, contract review and policy interpretation to the campus community.
