Abstract The Institute for Academic Technology was launched in 1990 with a $3.5 million grant from IBM. Located in Research Triangle Park, the Institute developed software for use in educational settings, with a particular focus on language and math education. In addition to developing software, the IAT offered conferences, classes, and publications to reach educators interested in using technology in the classroom. The Institute grew out of the Courseware Development Project founded by UNC math professor William H. Graves in 1983. Graves was the first director of the Institute and was later succeeded by Lowell Roberts. Records include annual reports, correspondence, budget files, proposals, grant files, information about software, committee files, policies and procedures, files on projects and partners, conference and workshop materials, and other records. Acquired as part of University Archives.
