Message from our Director for Educational Services & Simulation
We have all been working to best provide the support needed for the success of our learners statewide! It takes everyone in our community to pull this off. This page has a number of links to resources that we have found to be helpful tools. The iSET (informational Systems & Educational Technology) Team is working collaboratively to improve our technologies and our Distance Learning environment for our learners, faculty & community. We are currently undergoing our needs assessment and gap analysis and will distribute our results here.
