Addressing Digital Inequities through Device Loaner Programs

Friday, October 28 | 8:30AM–9:15AM MT | Meeting Room 501-502
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Presentation/Panel Session
The coronavirus pandemic exposed the digital divide and the urgency to find a digital resource solution to help make education accessible to all students as classes were shifted online. Learn how a 90,000-student, predominately in-person college quickly adapted to provide digital resources, such as long-term checkout devices, software, and training on how to use the equipment, to students, who shifted to the newly created online classes in March 2020 and beyond.
