Faculty at a computer

Our Mission is to be a comprehensive instructional resource center that provides focus, coordination, equipment, and human resources necessary to develop excellence in the teaching and learning process at NCCC. The Center strives to maintain a balance among three main strands of emphasis. Those emphases are pedagogy, scholarship of teaching and learning, and effective technology use in the classroom.


Founded in 1989 under a Title III Strengthening Institutions Grant, the FRCAE funded projects that involved 250 faculty members. In 1993 when the grant ended, the College funded the Center and its present location is in the new Learning Commons D106 Suite. The Center is staffed with a half-time Coordinator and a secretary. The Center's Advisory Board has faculty members from each division and advises the Center staff on issues and activities.

What Is Zoom?

Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing platform that can be used for video conferencing meetings, audio conferencing, webinars, meeting recordings, and live chat. A "Zoom Meeting" simply refers to a meeting that's hosted using Zoom, and attendees (students) can join the meeting in-person, via webcam or video conferencing camera, or via phone.
