TLAs also demonstrate how to use Penn State services such as ANGEL, podcasting and iTunes U, Adobe Connect, ITS Streaming Services, and the Blogs at Penn State.

TLAs can gain real-life consulting experience, practice communication and organizational skills, and earn academic credits with the possibility of earning wages in subsequent semesters.
