As we prepare to upgrade to Blackboard 9, Director
Judith Lea has enrolled in a Blackboard Cohort class that meets on line every Monday for an hour. The class began February 7th and will run through April. The class is designed to share and learn as different institutions prepare to upgrade to 9.1.

A new series of student workshops started on Computer Literacy. The first workshop “The Internet and the World Wide Web” was attended by 15 students.

Once again the center continues to serve as a proctor setting not only for Northeast Students but for students from Athens State, University of Texas at Dallas, and Brigham Young University.

A technology trainer from Howard Technologies conducted Classroom Technology Workshops on February 17th. This gave instructors an opportunity to see the classroom technology in various buildings on campus. With Title III funding 10 classrooms were installed during early spring semester. Workshops were conducted in the following buildings: Pendley Admin; Business Education, Annex, and English Building. Another six classrooms are expected to be complete before the end of summer. Thirty-seven instructors attended the classroom technology training.

The number of students attending the center for technology assistance continues to grow. During February, 275 students were assisted by the center director or one of the two student lab assistants.

We look forward to record attendance during March.
