As members and representatives of the UCI community, our goal in providing this process and review criteria is to promote instructional innovation while protecting the privacy and security of our students. Central to this effort is an open discussion of the challenges and opportunities of third party instructional technologies. Our review process and selection criteria reflect this goal as well as our guiding principles shared below:
|Engage in and provide a space for discussion around instructional technology||
|Advocate for the needs, wants, and requirements of our students, instructors, and staff||
|Ensure a safe, stable, and user-friendly technology environment||
|Streamline the negotiation and procurement process||
In the process of reviewing a third party tool or service, representatives from UC Irvine might determine that a formalized agreement needs to be established with the service provider, to ensure that all applicable policies and procedures are followed adequately. If the outcome of the review is a recommendation for a formalized agreement, UC Irvine representatives will work with the vendor to establish a contract.
