Computer & Technology Support

Bread Loaf offers a number of electronic resources as well as computer labs and computer support staff at every campus. Faculty with questions about using any of these resources should contact Shel Sax or, for BreadNet, Caroline Eisner.


Bread Loaf has its own communications network, BreadNet, which is a course management tool, and also functions as an e-mail server, an electronic bulletin board, a site for class folders and conferences, and a communications site for the Bread Loaf community throughout the year.

  • BreadNet is the primary means of communication at Bread Loaf, especially among the Bread Loaf office, administration, faculty, staff, and students; we urge all employees to use BreadNet during the summer.
  • All Bread Loaf employees are provided with a BreadNet account (free of charge); our technology staff will help them install and learn the system. At registration, employees receive a current BreadNet Account Information sheet that outlines the basics of setting up an account and using BreadNet.
  • Employees will have a BreadNet username and password (which are different from their Middlebury ID and PIN (see Middlebury ID).
  • Anyone wishing to have outside e-mail forwarded to their BreadNet account must make arrangements through their own e-mail provider.
  • The Director of BreadNet, Caroline Eisner, is available (usually at a moment’s notice) to give online support to BreadNet users year-round.

The Course Hub

The Course Hub is Middlebury College's gateway to course content for students and faculty. It is integrated with the Canvas learning management system. You can use the Course Hub as a location to upload your course syllabus or to add a variety of resources including course web sites, course blogs, electronic reserves, Google docs or streaming audio/video.

To log into the Course Hub, go to and enter your Middlebury username and password. You and your students will then see the courses that you are teaching or registered in. Links to course resources added by instructors will be visible and accessible to members of the class.

Please see for instructions and more information. Questions and requests for assistance should be directed to Shel Sax, director of technology.
