College's New Tech Plan Attracts Students

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: A major investment in new technology seems to be paying off for Lethbridge College. Enrollment numbers are up about two per cent, which the school's president attributes to a course revamp that includes new online technologies.

"We're investing almost $1 million in retooling our curriculum so students have options of either taking courses on campus, through a blended model or totally online," said Dr. Tracy Edwards. The three-year course "renovation" program is now in its second year. By the end of 2013, Edwards said the hope is to have online options in every single course.

Beyond student enrollment, course loads are also up. The school reports a 4.9 per cent increase in credit sales. Edwards said it's heartening to see students interested in taking more courses.

"It's really gratifying to see the kinds of things that our faculty, staff and students can do," she said. "I think we're just on the tipping point of doing some really amazing things."
