About Us

In 1995, Rice University established the Center for Technology in Teaching and Learning (CTTL) to address the ways in which information technology can expand and enrich education on the Rice campus as well as in other settings.

The mission of CTTL is to undertake research that makes technologies for learning more productive, accessible, and engaging.

Our recent focus has been on the use of games in science and health education.
