RCCC honored for digital technology

May 1. Rowan-Cabarrus Community College was named one of the 2014-2015 Top Ten Digital Community Colleges by the Center for Digital Education for its use of digital technologies to improve services “We are honored and proud to have made the prestigious list of honorees,” said Dr. Carol S. Spalding, president of Rowan-Cabarrus.
Recently RCCC rolled out a new feature on the student’s registration system that allows students to plan their entire path to graduation online. This planning helps improve their ability to forecast which classes they need to take, which terms and how close they are to achieving their degree, diploma, or certificate. Additionally, students’ itemized tuition bills are now easily accessible through the same platform.
Online tutoring for students is available in many subjects 24 hours a day and seven days a week, as is the College’s IT help desk. RCCC has also created a stable, secured wireless network which allows students, faculty, and staff to be able to connect to network resources using not only college-owned devices, but personal devices like smartphones, tablets or laptops. Other digital initiatives include introducing online textbooks to many of the College’s core and elective classes, online job preparation and searching resources, social media and electronic emergency notifications systems.
