Instructional Technology Center

The Bluefield State College Instructional Technology Center is located on the fourth floor of the Ned E. Shott Physical Education Building; the Center for Extended Learning is located on the second floor of the same building. Both are committed to providing undergraduate instruction through provision of instructional media services to faculty, students and staff. They serve as a model demonstration and instruction site for modern instructional technologies providing multimedia, microcomputing, teleconferencing, instructional television and distance education.

The Instructional Technology Center staff is committed to the idea that learning is individual, that learning occurs at different rates for different people, that different learning styles exist, and that learning is a continuous process.
