As employees of an educational institution, faculty and staff at Luther College enjoy a number of technology-related benefits.
Many computer hardware manufacturers and retailers offer academic pricing discounts. As employees of an educational institution, Luther College faculty and staff can take advantage of this discount to buy software for their personal computers at low prices. Some discount programs for specific hardware products are detailed below, but you can often find academic pricing deals just by inquiring of retailers or visiting academic-specific web sites such as academicsuperstore.com. Luther has specific arrangements with these vendors:
As ITS collects used equipment that is done serving its purpose at Luther, it is sold online. ITS sells used computer equipment until its supply is depleted. Purchased items are paid for and picked up in Preus Library 221 and a disclaimer is signed at that time. Personal checks and cash are accepted; credit cards are not. View available equipment here.
Luther faculty and staff can use the Adobe Creative Cloud suite on up to two 2 devices simultaneously, including personal devices. Those who are interested in this option need to contact the Technology Help Desk.
LinkedIn Learning is an online course website offering video courses taught by industry experts in software, creative, and business skills. LinkedIn Learning is available to all faculty and staff while at Luther. Sign in here with your Norse Key username and password to access this service.
