Going Mobile at Nicolet College
Nicolet College will put together two mobile classrooms by next year.
The project is thanks to a grant from the federal department of labor, totaling almost three-quarters of a million dollars. Nicolet President Libby Burmaster says the classrooms will serve as a new kind of educational platform.
“And so instead of students traveling to campus, we’re taking some of the classroom instruction to them, which is gonna make training in these credentials available to people in a whole new way.”
One will be a lecture-style classroom with state of the art technology for teleconferencing. The second will be able to switch between IT classes and manufacturing ones. Funding comes as part of a $23-million federal grant to Wisconsin’s Technical College system.
