One of several recent developments benefiting online learning at Rutgers has been the "Realignment of Instructional Technology Resources," announced by Barbara Lee, Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, in January 2017.  Designed to increase efficiency both of IT functions and tactical support operations for online learning, the Realignment consolidates three staff units with a strong track record of assisting online and hybrid faculty university-wide: the Center for Online & Hybrid Learning and Instructional Technologies (COHLIT); the Office of Instructional & Research Technology (OIRT); and Instructional Technology and eLearning Solutions. This presentation takes a first look at the newly emerging structure and some of the promising opportunities it may offer.
