March was a very busy month in the Technology Learning Center. To bring about more student awareness of the many services we offer a $25.00 iTunes gift card was donated to the center to be given away. To be eligible for the drawing students had to log study hours in the center during the month of March. We are proud to say even with spring break in March we offered assistance to 382 students who logged hours of student time in the center.

The Blackboard 9.1 Cohort class continues to meet online every Monday. This class has proved to be very beneficial in preparing for our fall upgrade of our production server to Blackboard 9.1. As a part of the course all those participating have been offered the Blackboard Student Orientation course free of charge. This course will be delivered through Blackboard and will give students the tools needed to succeed as an online learner in Blackboard.

In preparation of faculty training we have upgraded the Bb 8.0 test server to Bb 9.1 and will be offering instructor training for the summer semester.

Student workshops were taught on Sending Emails and Attachments. We also offered a series of workshops for Gildan employees who are losing their jobs on April 8th. These are Basic Computer Literacy workshops ititled Introduction to Computers; The Internet and the World Wide Web; Buying a PC; Sending Emails and Attachments; and Computer, Safety, Ethics, and Scams. These workshops were offered for one week during March, and will be offered during April and May. The former employees may attend any or all of the sessions and may attend more than once for remediation. During March six people from Gildan took advantage of these free workshops.

We continue to serve as a testing center and proctor location not only for Northeast students but other college campuses as well.
