"Education at both the K-12 and university levels is now supported inside and outside the classroom by a range of technologies that help foster and enhance the learning process. Students now access class materials, watch instructional videos, comment on class activities, collaborate with each other, complete homework, and take tests online.
Technology-based educational tools and platforms offer important new capabilities for students and teachers. After only a few generations of evolution, these tools provide real-time assessment so that material can be presented based on how quickly a student learns. Education technologies can also be scaled to reach broad audiences, enable continuous improvement of course content, and increase engagement among students."

Student Employment Services is located on the second floor in the Student Services Building.
The Student Employment Program offers a variety of jobs available throughout campus and is administered by Financial Aid Office. Students are paid on an hourly basis, usually at the SIU minimum wage rate, and normally work an average of 15 hours per week. Pay is for actual hours worked and benefits do not accrue with this type of employment.
The Undergraduate Assistantship (UGA) Program provides a unique opportunity for students. The program offers on-campus, research‚ and/or creative activity opportunities for SIU undergraduate students. Students selected for an Undergraduate Assistantship are able to work directly with a faculty member or professional level staff member in a project that leads to a poster or oral presentation at the Annual Research and Creative Activity Forum on Campus in April. Students should spend 10-20 hours per week working on the project and are paid approximately $10/hour. Positions are available for the fall and spring semesters. The UGA Program is not usually funded during the summer term.
Graduate assistantships (GAs) are available in a variety of places across campus, from academic departments and research centers to administrative and service units. This type of appointment comprises the largest number of awards offered by the University. Nondeclared students are not eligible for graduate assistantships. Graduate Assistants are not allowed to hold a student worker position unless they have special approval through the Graduate School.
