BYU-Idaho's Human Resources (HR) department is in charge of the interviewing, hiring, and on-boarding of new employees and faculty.

I-Learn 3.0 marks the transition of I-Learn 2.0 from the BrainHoney Learning Management System (LMS) to a new LMS called Brightspace. It is the culmination of years of research and testing, all done in order to find a system that can meet the escalating needs of the university. Enrollment rates are steadily rising, and projections show that it will only continue to grow. I-Learn 3.0 is fully equipped to handle those escalating enrollment numbers.
Additionally, I-Learn 3.0 will perform faster than either of its predecessors, will offer an intuitive interface when accessed via mobile phones and tablets, and will better meet the requirements set by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Lastly, I-Learn 3.0 will come complete with several third-party learning applications that will encourage learning in ways that are in agreement with BYU-Idaho’s Learning Model.
I-Plan is BYU-Idaho’s upcoming “life management” software. Essentially, I-Plan takes the enormous task of future-mapping and places it directly at a student’s fingertips. Once it is implemented, students will be able to create grad plans, take career assessment tests, and be matched with majors and careers that fit their aptitudes and interests.
Students can also use I-Plan to find internships, connect with professionals in their chosen fields, and learn important information (average salary, industry growth, job openings, etc) about their chosen careers.
The Student Technology Center is staffed by specialists in a variety of media programs. If you have any questions about the use of iWorks, iLife, Adobe Creative Cloud, Microsoft Office Suite, and more, visit them at McKay 140A to get help.

Generally, the TSC provides technology-related support and guidance for more complex incidents or problems. These may include hardware and software issues, electronic equipment problems, or system complications. You can contact the TSC at (208) 496-1411.
