Instructional Spotlights on EEE

EEE Instructional Spotlights

Are there innovative examples of teaching with technology that you would like to share? Perhaps an instructor created a unique assignment that helped students learn the concepts. Maybe you saw an interesting use of technology in the classroom or on a course webpage.

The new ‘Instructional Spotlights’ on the EEE homepage have so far featured the Schools of Biological Sciences, Humanities, Physical Sciences and Social Science, and we are always looking for more examples to share! Learn more

New and enhanced features on EEE

The Office of Information Technology has been hard at work making improvements and adding functionality to the Electronic Educational Environment (EEE). The development team has modernized the look and feel of EEE, enhanced the mobile version, and made a significant number of functional updates (selected updates described below).

EEE Homepage

In addition to the enhanced features on EEE, you can access official UCI photos using the newly released MyPhoto functionality. Instructors and students can click on ‘Classmates’ on MyEEE to access the photos, which are made available based on user-preferences. For more information, please see https://eee.uci.edu/help/policy/tools/#photos

EEE also has a new YouTube channel, which contains a growing number of videos focused on new and existing functionality of the system.

Instructors, staff and students at UCI continue to use EEE in innovative ways and provide us with feedback about how to improve or expand the system. Your input about new features and enhancements, or questions about how to use EEE are welcome!
