SOC Laptop Program
The Student Owned Computing Program is an experiment to discover the most effective ways to integrate technology into the classroom. The SOC Program is designed to enable students and faculty to explore the benefits inherently provided by a wireless Internet connection in the classroom. This also allows for students to work together on class projects, explore web resources, and use software in the classroom all via wireless connectivity. The ultimate goal of the program is to investigate how laptop computers and wireless connectivity can affect the classroom environment. For more information, visit http://www.engr.ncsu.edu/soc/
As the NC State Data Network matures, wireless connectivity becomes even more important. Although in its infant stages at NC State, wireless technologies will soon be commonplace. ComTech is responsible for ensuring that the data network here at NC State remains stable and reliable.
