Oberlin Center for Technologically Enhanced Teaching (OCTET)

OCTET stands for the Oberlin Center for Technologically Enhanced Teaching. It started in the mid-nineties as a 1 person office funded by a Mellon Grant. It has since grown to an office of 5 full-time staff and 2 part-timers.  OCTET works with faculty in specific areas to help them plan and maintains the resources they use to teach and to engage students in research projects. This includes planning and purchasing equipment for and managing labs in Computer Science, Cinema and Art and recording studio.  OCTET also oversees and develops the learning management system and much, much more.

OCTET also works directly with students to help them with assignments that require the use of tools, software and spaces and with the Conservatory and A&S Deans on special projects and grants.

While OCTET staff work in various locations around campus the main office is in King 125.
