Technology Readiness Checklists

We want you to have the proper technologies, along with the necessary login access, tools and features already tested and explored before your classes begin.

Even if you feel you are a very savvy user of technology, take some time to go through each checklist and ensure you have all the tools and technologies along with access and practice opportunities confirmed and ready to go!

NIC has created three important technology checklists to assist students in being ready for learning digitally. There are three checklists as outlined below.
