Local businesses donate tablets for less fortunate HLSCC students

Local businesses donate tablets for less fortunate HLSCC students

Three local businesses have donated electronic tablets to the H Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC). These devices are to assist less fortunate students with their studies. NAGICO Insurance, Alphonso Warner Insurance Agency, and telecommunications company CCT have donated a combined total of 23 android tablets to the college’s Assistive Technology Programme.

In a social media post published on September 17, HLSCC said the school is heavily transitioning to the digital platform but not all students may be able to afford the devices.

“The Assistive Technology Programme was developed to address this sensitive issue some students, unfortunately, contend with,” the college explained stated.

Students interested in receiving tablets will be required to complete an application form at the Student Success Centre on campus.

The college had launched a ‘Going Digital’ campaign since moving closer to its aim of enhancing the learning experience of students.

This campaign will see students beginning to use Office 365 applications, EBSCOHost, e-book platform Cengage Unlimited, and several other digital resources this semester.
