The Center for Digital Education and Converge magazine have selected 31 community colleges as outstanding examples of technology delivery in higher education. The fourth annual Digital Community Colleges Survey identifies and spotlights colleges that provide a high level of service to their students and faculty through information technology.
Lake Superior College has been selected at #10 for mid-sized colleges (between 3,000-7,500 students) in the U.S.
The survey examined areas of technology ranging from online admissions, student access to transcripts and grades, information security and infrastructure, to weather and campus security alerts and online library capabilities. Some of the factors that most likely set us apart from some of the schools include our online enrollments (25% of total enrollment), our uses of Web 2.0 technologies including school-branded blogs and wikis, and our efforts at green computing procedures.
The goal for next year is to move higher on the list.
