Tool Information Pages (TIP) are intended to be an introduction to various technology tools and their specific implementation here at the University. The tabs "Basic Understanding" and "Pros and Cons" describe and define each tool in its generic form. Starting with "Basic Operation," it becomes specific to the UM option and highlights a bulleted list of concepts that would roughly correspond to that level of operational understanding. Faculty may use these lists to help identify their level of understanding of a given tool, especially in conjunction with ETS training offerings or requests.
