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).
MIT primarily uses two platforms for learning and course management: Canvas and Stellar.
IS&T maintains a limited pool of loaner laptops, tablets, and peripherals that may be requested by MIT faculty, students, and staff who do not possess a laptop with which to work remotely.
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).
