Our role is to lead the development of technology enhanced distance learning courses and programs, manage and advance the use of the Blackboard system, train and support instructors in using Blackboard and other educational technology tools at MHC.
Contact ETS for information on designing courses (both classroom and online), using Blackboard, video and photography used in the delivery of courses, or anything else related to the use of technology in course delivery.

Geekapalooza is an annual event held the day after College Day when the majority of faculty are back for the Fall Semester. It is a day of technology show and tell by some of the college’s biggest geeks.
The goal for Geekapalooza is to inform, inspire, and engage participants on the use of technology in education by sharing the types of technology tools or techniques that are effectively being used by faculty and staff at Medicine Hat College so that others may learn and benefit from these experiences.
