Saint Paul College was once again recognized as a tech-savvy school by the
Center for Digital Education, through their Digital Community Colleges Survey. The
Center for Digital Education’s Digital Community Colleges Survey Awards honor community colleges utilizing technology to engage students and improve learning.
In 2016, the College was recognized in the
top ten for large community colleges (enrollment of 10,000 students or more). In 2017, we were named in the
top ten for mid-sized colleges (enrollment of 5,000 – 10,000 students).
Now in its twelfth year, the Digital Community Colleges Survey 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 Center for Digital Education. “Congratulations to this year’s survey winners.”
