The Indiana Humanities Council is one of our original partners with the EPIC project, starting in 2006. The IHC developed the smartDESKTOP, which was later adopted by the Indiana Department of Education as the Teachers’ Portal of Indiana.
We used the smartDESKTOP as the EPIC collaboration
environment in 2006-07 but we have since changed our main
collaboration space to be Ball State’s Blackboard
environment. This allows us to more seamlessly support
our graduate credit options for EPIC teachers.
However, EPIC maintains a community within the
smartDESKTOP and we highly recommend the smartDESKTOP
to all teachers as an online environment for
curriculum, assessment, and professional productivity.
EPIC continues to support
the Resource Connection in the smartDESKTOP.
Teachers can use the smartDESKTOP for free. Create an
