BU Supported Tools

BU-Supported Tools

The Center for Academic Technology supports several university-wide licensed tools and other open-source tools. BU-supported tools are those that the majority of the campus uses. CAT provides support and training for these tools on top of the support provided by the vendor; faculty and academic staff can request one-on-one consultations or classroom instruction for students. These tools include:

Non-Supported Tools

Butler faculty and students may use additional academic technology tools in their teaching and coursework, respectively. CAT staff will do their best to accommodate non-supported tools; however, workshops and training over these tools is not guaranteed. If there is widespread use of a tool, CAT will consider purchasing a university-wide license; otherwise, payment for tools will be left to the department or college using the tool. Faculty who are interested in one-on-one help with non-supported tools should email or view the self-help resources in Infobase. Common tools include:

  • Adobe Creative Cloud
  • Infographic Tools (e.g. Piktochart, Canva, Adobe Spark)
  • ePortfolio / Web Authoring Tools (e.g. Weebly, Wix)
  • Digital Storytelling Tools (e.g. iMovie, Adobe Premiere Pro, MovieMaker, Adobe Spark)
  • Podcasting Tools (Audacity)
  • MS Office Tools
