Technologies for Instruction and Research
Alongside our standard suite of lab and classroom software, Davidson provides access to a number of robust, large-scale, collaborative software packages and services for use in instruction and research.
A part of the Domain of One’s Own initiative, students and faculty are given a domain space where they can manage their own webspaces. You can create and deploy digital spaces for things like class websites, your own professional or personal website, subdomains for additional topic-specific sites (with hundreds of possible web applications), your own server environment for custom-coded web applications, your own email addresses, and web-accessible databases. We provide support for popular applications like WordPress and Omeka, and offer guidance for others such as Drupal and Scalar. Make an appointment with us to learn more.
