Educational Technology

The department of Educational Technology offers help and support for the following JTCC supported applications:


All instructors have the opportunity to utilize Blackboard in their courses. This learning management system has many tools that you may be asked to use. How to documents for tools that are commonly used in face-to-face, online, and hybrid courses can be found in every course in the Help and Support area of the Course Menu.


If you are taking an online course, you are required to take proctored tests. These can be taken in the JTCC Testing Centers, through an approved proctor, or by utilizing ProctorU. This application allows you to take the test from home while being monitored. If your instructor has indicated that this is a possibility for you and you are interested in learning more, information can be found in the Help and Support area in your course menu.
