"IT careers cover the full range of computer-related activities, including servicing and repairing computers, building networks, programming computers, designing and writing programs and applications, building networks, troubleshooting and protecting hardware and software from internal and external threats and teaching consumers how to use and apply computer applications in their daily lives and businesses," said Dr. Douglas Rowlett, director of Houston Community College's Center of Excellence for Digital and Information Technology.

"We also offer a full range of industry-specific certifications for those who are already working in the IT field and need to upgrade their skills or complete a particular certification for their current job requirements," Rowlett said.

In 2009, Doug Rowlett, director of educational technology services at Houston Community College's (HCC) Southwest College, applied for and received a $100,000 grant to pilot emerging digital tools in classrooms. He purchased 100 Kindle e-book readers, 35 iPads, and 30 dual-screen tablet/e-book readers from a now-defunct manufacturer.

The Kindles-used primarily in English classes-did not change instructors' teaching styles, but students who switched to electronic books saved money, not to mention their backs, by eliminating the need to haul several pounds of books around in their backpacks, Rowlett says.
After completing a three-semester pilot in fall 2010, administrators at HCC Southwest remain convinced of mobile computing's potential in the classroom. The college recently made plans to equip every full-time faculty member with an iPad, as many as it can within the parameters of its budget.
"We've proved these devices work in classrooms," says Rowlett, who says the technology fared well in anatomy, biology, and physiology pilots.
Like most colleges, HCC Southwest can't afford to purchase a mobile device for every student. But to ensure student access, the college is working to make course content-such as electronic textbooks and the school's learning management system-accessible on any mobile computing device a student owns. Most students at least have a smartphone, Rowlett says. With the right infrastructure, the hope is that they can access the resources from there.
"We are going in the direction of becoming as platform-agnostic as we can be, so students can access educational content on whatever device they bring on campus," he says.
