Lake Land College honored for creating unique learning environments and expanding distance learning

April 8, 2014
 
Lake Land College has recently been honored and recognized for its innovative uses of technology to achieve first-rate student learning environments by e.Republic’s Center for Digital Education. This year, the college ranks number seven among mid-sized colleges nationally in the annual Digital Community Colleges Survey conducted by the Center for Digital Education, based in Sacramento, Calif. 
 
According to a press release by the Center for Digital Education, the “survey examined and scored areas of digital and emerging technologies, such as use of mobile devices and technology integration into curriculum; strategic planning and data management; and professional development, including availability of technology tools and training for faculty and students.”
 
“Lake Land College strives to be at the forefront of emerging technologies in order to provide the best educational opportunities and learning environment for the students we serve,” said Lee Spaniol, director of information systems and services at Lake Land College. “The college makes every effort to make information as accessible as possible, and our hard work and dedication to that has paid off.”
 
According to the survey, 53 percent of colleges surveyed have developed and published social media policies – a nine percent increase since last year and a 25 percent increase in the last two years. Seventy-six percent of colleges are addressing issues regarding learning on mobile devices such as effective delivery of content to multiple platforms among students and faculty, as well as addressing issues around access off-campus. Finally, the survey indicates that 21 percent of responding colleges have developed mobile apps for course content.
 
 “Community colleges across the country are employing technology in exciting ways to develop unique learning environments on campus and to expand online learning opportunities 24/7,” said Alan Cox, senior vice president for the Center for Digital Education. “Many of the colleges honored this year have employed various technologies and social media to improve resources to further instructional goals. We are honored to acknowledge these community colleges’ technology advancements!”
 
The Center for Digital Education is operated by e.Republic Inc., the parent company of Government Technology magazine.
