Technology Learning Center Report

September began with a holiday and the college closed. Even with a day off the month still was very busy. The lab serviced 842 students during the month of September.
Along with assisting students the TLC offers many other services. As director I serve on the Distance Education Committee and we are in the process of writing a manual for Best Practices for online instructors. This will serve as a guide for those teaching online classes at Northeast. We hope this will be a valuable resource for instructors.
I was able to host the Northeast booth for the Jackson County Fair. This was a great outreach opportunity to meet new people and tell them about Northeast and the Technology Learning Center as well as the many other services the college offers.

I enrolled in two Blackboard classes being offered free of charge as professional development. The first class is a beta class for the new Blackboard program xpLor. This program is a cross-platform Learning Object Repository that is planned to be deeply integrated into Learn, ANGEL, Moodle, Joule, and Sakai. The TLC served as one of the locations for the new NACC television commercial.

Instructors came in for training and seven adjuncts and one full instructor completed their 10 hours technology training.
