Uncommon Thinking for the Common Good™Stay
We are a small University of approximately 1,000 students. The administration made it a requirement last year for all students, that they own a laptop due to the number of online resources that are required for coursework and their need to access our D2L Learning Management System when not in class. Last year we tried a laptop loaner program for those students who had financial difficulties and did not own a laptop. We also did some work with our Financial Aid office to come up with some creative solutions.
At the end of the year we quickly realized that the laptop loaner program does not work. Is there anyone out there offering similar programs or who have come up with creative solutions to address this problem?
What do you do if one of your students come to your institution but does not own a laptop? Any advice or comments would be appreciated.
