The virtual E-Learning Lab is available to all instructors who want to receive support, assistance, or guidance on teaching with technology. It is an open support lab which means you can just drop by via Zoom during the designated hours without making an appointment.

New Lab Space
The design of the new E-learning Center reflects how twenty-first-century digital instruction is created and supported. The E-learning Center will be a hub for collaboration, innovation, and the implementation of new learning models using technology across BMCC academic departments and student services.
Video and Multimedia Studio
A new “one-button studio” will be ready in Spring 2020 to support an automated and simplified video recording process for faculty and adjuncts. The studio provides a space for faculty to record instructional videos and presentations with short setup time and a low learning curve.
The cloud-based lab is a pilot currently running at the E-Learning Center with the goal of moving away from device-centric educational technology to learning-centric initiatives. The pilot program is a classroom space outfitted with cloud-based technology and hardware that models 21st-century learning. All software is low- to no-cost and available to participating faculty and students at the BMCC campus as well as remotely.
