New technology used at Alpena Community College makes it so students don’t have to be in the classroom to learn.
The college now uses the video conferencing system MX 700 to transmit some classes to the high school and Huron Shores campus students.
“We wanted to expand the offerings at the HUSH (Huron Shores) campus, and because of the distance with the area high schools it’s difficult for those students to come to our campus for classes. This helps us offer classes directly in the high schools,” said ACC Director of Learning Technology Sarah Burt.
Each semester varies with how many classes use the system, this semester eight took part she said, they used it since about spring of 2017.
