The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) is an internationally recognized State University of New York (SUNY) college for design, fashion, art, communications, and business. Founded in 1944, FIT has 1,300 faculty members, 10,000 students, and more than 1,000 staff members; the campus covers an entire city block in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City.
Multiple challenges, one solution
Several pressures on faculty, students, and staff led FIT to online training. Chief among these were a need for a wide range of instructional videos to supplement classroom teaching, and a desire to ease demand on technical support staff and facilities.
