Computer Learning Center expands to 2 regionals

Pitt's Computer Learning Center (CLS), a division of the College of General Studies (CGS), is expanding its reach to offer programs at two regional campuses.

Beginning this month at the Johnstown campus, a webmaster certificate program will be offered through a partnership of CLC and UPJ's Murtha Educational Center. The webmaster program is designed to prepare marketing, technical and support staff for Internet jobs and careers. Courses will be taught at the Murtha Center. The program is underwritten in part by the Gleason Group of Johns-town.

Beginning this fall, CLC will offer non-credit information technology (IT) courses through state-of-the-art interactive television to employees of businesses in the rural area of Bradford.

The expanded IT education will be funded through a state Link-to-Learn grant. Pitt-Bradford's business management department, in collaboration with CGS, will receive $207,944 for the project.

"This grant will help to fully equip our Computer Learning Center with an interactive television facility, so that, for the first time, content material being taught in downtown Pittsburgh will reach employees of Bradford area companies," said Susan R. Kinsey, dean of CGS.

Participants at CLC and at Bradford campus classrooms will be able to see and hear one another in th interactive courses.
