Welcome to the Student Technology Resources! This is intended to be a one-stop resource to inform students of what technology resources are available to them while they are students at ESC. Below is a list of tools that are available to you.
What tools and resources are available to you at any ESC location? As an ESC Student, you have access to the following:
- computer labs
All current ESC students get Office 365 accounts. This comes with 5 free installs of the Microsoft Office suite which you can use as long as you are a student here at Empire State College. That means that you can use MS Word, Excel, and Powerpoint for your class assignments on your home computers (PC and Mac), tablets, and even your smartphones.
Moodle is the learning management system (LMS) that we use for online courses, and hybrid and blended courses. Your instructor may post useful documents and materials to the course Moodle page. These are some useful resources for students using moodle and would like some guidance.
- Knowledge base articles: table of contents for students
- LEARNscape tutorials for students
- self-paced training course
- useful handouts
- week 1 webinar for students information
MS Teams is a communication and collaboration tool offered by the college to support faculty, staff, and students who are working remotely. This is a good singular space to conduct video calls, chat, share files, and collaborate on projects
LinkedIn Learning is a video-based online learning and training site that delivers on-demand instructional content on subjects, such as time management, web design, Office 365, communication skills, and many others. Students have access to LinkedIn Learning for as long as they are enrolled at the college.
LEARNscape is the college's own version of youtube. It is a good place to host your videos and makes it easy to create and submit video assignments on moodle. Check it out at learn.esc.edu
