Next Generation Learning Challenge

Next Generation Learning ChallengeDescription

The Next Generation Learning Challenge Project will enhance student success by improving college readiness and completion among low-income young adults through the use of applied technology. The emphasis is on identifying technology solutions that have demonstrated success and applying those solutions at a greater scale.

Central Piedmont Community College is building on the previous success of the Online Student Learning System developed as a part of the college’s Title III Strengthening Institutions project. CPCC invited six community colleges, including Lane, to be partners in the grants. Lane is the only west coast participant. Preference for funding was given to projects that improve success for a large number of students in high-enrollment, low completion rate developmental education and/or general education or high-demand occupational programs.
