Central Carolina Technical College will once again lead the way in innovations for education delivery when it launches a special pilot program this summer to explore the use of digital textbooks and other course materials. Certain sections of a limited number of courses will participate in the first round of the pilot program, which includes advanced reading and annotation technology through an online platform.
Students who enroll in a participating section of these courses will not need to purchase a physical textbook for that particular class. CCTC is the first technical college in South Carolina to implement e-textbooks in our courses, and is among the first in the nation to explore this method of textbook delivery.
Selected course/sections for the summer will be e-textbook only classes, and materials will be accessible on the student's computer via Desire2Learn (D2L) as well as on mobile devices running iOS and Android OS. Customized training and support will be provided to students before the summer term begins and will continue throughout the duration of the term. Students who participate will also be surveyed and interviewed to determine their satisfaction with this method of textbook delivery. More information about technical requirements for participation in these classes will be available soon.
The following course/sections are participating in this pilot program for the summer. For more information about the program, please contact Mark Duffie in User Support Services at 803-778-6633 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
