Commonwealth Academic Technology and Support (CATS) assists the use of instructional technology to achieve higher learning in any learning environment.

We offer students assistance with instructional technology used in their courses so they can focus on academic success. We manage and support Brightspace, Zoom, and other instructional technologies they encounter in the classroom.

CATS offers faculty and staff LMS and instructional technology support and training, distance learning and instructional design services, and professional development opportunities.

Our Services

CATS prides itself on providing high quality, customer-centered services to assist with achieving higher education in the classroom. We are here to support the instructional goals of faculty with training and support, distance learning and instructional design services, and professional development opportunities.

We offer training and support for instructional technology for CU faculty, staff, and students.

For helpful articles about Brightspace, Zoom, LinkedIn Learning, and Office 365, please visit our IMDC Infobase at

Please note we are moving to the Commonwealth University Helpdesk system but will maintain the Infobase through Fall 2024 to give faculty and students time to update course links and bookmarks.
