Next @IU

Learning technologies are always evolving. As students evolve, so do the systems and tools that shape the way we engage, educate, and inspire them.

Next.IU is a program to discover what might be next for teaching and learning technologies at Indiana University. The Next trials do more than explore the latest trends. They investigate the tools and approaches that best support IU's pursuit of excellence in the classroom and beyond.


Courseload is a digital materials distribution and learning collaboration tool that provides textbooks and other resources in digital form. Students and instructors in participating classes can access Courseload through Oncourse. Courseload is available as part of IU's eTexts Initiative.
