Information Technology

Teaching and Learning with Technology - Wesleyan's teaching and learning environment is both strong in the liberal arts and progressive with the use of appropriate technology. Students attending Weselyan are required to have a laptop computer for their use. In addition, many courses require the ability to install Microsoft Windows based applications. Additional information regarding Apple compatibility is available from our Helpdesk staff at 304-473-8877.

 

Connectivity - libraries, students, faculty, global communities - Students at Wesleyan are connected to class discussion groups, online course resources, and electronic research materials; they are connected to each other, to their faculty, and to the world.

 

Anytime, anywhere computing has become a lifestyle among today's nomadic college students, as well as college faculty, business workers, and everyone with a “connected” lifestyle. Students will use their own computer to complete research in the classroom, in their dorm room, in our wireless enabled public areas, and wherever they are during college breaks – anytime, anywhere.
