Technical Keep-Teaching Assistant - Faculty support for Zoom sessions

Faculty may request a Tech Keep-Teaching Assistant (TechKTA) to assist a specific course section with various aspects of teaching in Zoom, so that they may focus on content and delivery. For example: Muting/unmuting students; looking out for students who virtually raise their hand; turning off students’ audio and/or video if it is disruptive; limiting chat functions if needed to Host/Co-Host (Instructor and TechKTA); and so on. 

TechKTAs are UIT student workers (and a few staff) trained by Academic Technology. Please note that the TechKTAs are not academic assistants in any form. They are trained to assist with course Zoom sessions, not Canvas.

To request a TechKTA, please submit this form:
