The Teaching and Learning Center strives to give faculty and staff the tools and knowledge they need to successfully leverage technology in the classroom and workplace.
Canvas Learning Management System
The eLearning Department offers a host of ongoing training sessions from beginning to advanced and fully online learning. The Washington State Board of Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) offers a three-week, online asynchronous course for beginners.
Most Clark College classrooms are equipped with a Smart Classroom podium. All faculty and staff who wish to use the equipment must first complete the face-to-face or online training*.
Clark College is undergoing a project that will ultimately span all 34 Community and Technical Colleges (ctc) in Washington. It involves replacing our current Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software applications with the People Soft program. ctcLink web-based software, will allow more freedom to students, faculty and staff to enter and retrieve data easily and from anywhere.The conversion to all 34 colleges will take place over the next five years. Clark College is in the WAVE 1 group and has begun the transition over to the new system with the goal of rolling it out in 2016.
