Fourth year in a row!
For the fourth year in a row, Northampton Community College has received national recognition as one of the top ten large community colleges for its effective deployment of technology. The Center for Digital Education (CDE) announced the ranking on April 18 as the culmination of its 2016-17 survey that analyzes how community colleges use a range of technologies to improve services to students, faculty, staff and the community at large.
"This year's survey indicates community colleges are continuing to improve efforts at creating cost-effective platforms and Open Education Resources, mobile environments, real-time resources, telepresence robots and more to create robust online and mobile environments for their students," said Dr. Kecia Ray, executive director for the CDE.
Leadership in technology is one of the NCC's five strategic focus areas. The others are student outreach, student success, community engagement and diversity and global engagement.
