Web and software development
Information Technology Support Services at the University of Minnesota Rochester (UMR IT) offers a variety of services to help staff and faculty members deliver an innovative educational environment for students.
UMR IT’s web and software development group plays an integral role in many aspects of UMR operations – from admissions to recruitment to the classroom to student activities. UMR IT team members work in collaboration with faculty and staff to apply technology in ways that increase efficiency, improve performance, and offer practical solutions to faculty and staff concerns.
What We Do
The web and software development group is responsible for a wide range of information technology at UMR.
Web site development and management
Our team manages and maintains the UMR web site and all its web pages. Through our content management system, UMR staff can easily update the content of their web page or pages. As part of web management, our team also can expand areas of the web site to meet new needs, as well as offer the latest in web-based technology solutions that help automate processes, collect data, or generate reports, as a few examples.
UMR developed iSEAL, a complete curriculum management system that makes course materials – readings, quizzes, exams, student papers, faculty notes, podcasts, videos, and other information – available online to students. iSEAL helps UMR faculty deliver a cohesive and integrated curriculum for the UMR bachelor’s degree in health sciences.
The web and software development team manages the technical aspects of the iSEAL online curriculum management system, which allows faculty members to focus on further enhancing the curriculum.
