CAS-IT: TAP History

CAS-IT: TAP was originally known as ELDCF and was created by the Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences, the Vice President of Academic Computing, and several interested Department Chairs and faculty, . We were housed in the Research Services Building, then moved into Stevenson Hall in room 227A, and are currently housed in Stevenson Hall 107.. In early 1995, our name changed to Laboratory for Integrated Learning and Technology (LILT). It was a happy fit, describing our ongoing mission of integrating technology into the learning mission of ISU. We have since added the College of Business to our client list and also support many grant based projects on campus.
