New Technologies

We are thrilled to offer a unified technology platform, onePratt, for students, faculty, and staff that provides a personalized set of design applications, information dashboards, and multiple channels for social engagement and collaboration all in one package.

  • aggregates all academic and support tools like Canvas, e-Portfolios, Google Suite, Advisement and Registration, Financial Information, Safety & Wellness, Student Life, as well as social spaces to connect with your peers or get any type of help needed. It provides you with personalized dynamic information, quick access to software, hundreds of knowledge articles, online print submissions, and discussions on many topics. 

  • Launchpad, the new virtual lab environment provides students and faculty with access to all licensed software titles like the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite, Autodesk, ArcGIS, Rhino, Fusion360, etc. This cloud-based platform not only provides off-campus access but will also allow users to shift more computing cycles to the Launchpad platform rather than their own computer.

  • Production is the new job submission and fulfillment environment in which students have virtual access to output centers for 2D, 3D, cutting, and milling across both campuses. 

  • Canvas, a new Learning Management System (LMS), is available. Resources are available through the Center for Teaching and Learning for faculty and students, including guides, video tutorials, and self-paced training.

  • Milanote: All students and faculty can now access Milanote, an easy-to-use tool to organize your ideas and projects into visual pin-up boards. With Milanote you can share work in real time, collaborate, and organize feedback. When logging in, select “Log in with Google” and sign in with your Pratt credentials.
