In response to the impacts of COVID-19 on the campus learning environment, MIT is providing a range of IT resources to the community, including the Teach Remote website, to best support our community's shift to teaching and learning remotely. These elements collectively represent a significant amount of change for those involved in MIT's teaching and learning activities, so we are working to develop ways to simplify the integration of these tools into their activities.
Find Athena clusters. Request a course locker. Educational software and tools help you teach and learn.
LabArchives is a cloud-based electronic lab notebook (ELN).
Coming soon: Canvas learning management system (LMS) will be made available as an option across MIT in time for the fall semester. Stellar/LMOD will continue to be available and supported by IS&T for those who wish to use it.
IS&T maintains a limited pool of loaner laptops that may be requested by undergraduate students who do not possess a laptop for academic use.
Athena "clusters" are public computer labs that are located throughout the MIT campus.
Athena is MIT's academic computing environment, which powers computing clusters (labs), private workstations, remote access servers, and personal machines throughout campus.
An Athena locker is a directory (aka: folder) on the Athena filesystem. IS&T creates lockers for official MIT courses, UROP projects, student living groups, ASA recognized student activities and MIT organizations (including administrative offices, academic departments, programs, and lab or research groups).
IS&T Educational Applications Support assists with online applications related to courses, grades, registration, and other tools for education at MIT.
