Lone Star College connects students with technology
HOUSTON, TX -- Having the proper technology is more important than ever for students looking to better their lives. The Lone Star College TechConnect program offers digital resources such as HP laptops and Apple iPads for students enrolled in the spring semester.
“This equipment is loaned to any Lone Star College student who does not have the resources or means to own it themselves,” said Stephen C. Head, Ph.D., LSC Chancellor. “These devices are provided like a library book and are available to registered LSC students.”
Access to this kind of technology is vital for students in higher education. The U.S. Dept. of Education reports that online learning opportunities and the use of open educational resources and other technologies can increase educational productivity by accelerating the rate of learning.
LSC is also providing free use of Office 365 on compatible personal devices. With Office 365, students have access to the latest version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and more.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed higher education and the tools needed for students to be successful,” said Head. “We remain committed to ensuring we provide the necessary means for students to complete their studies.”
