In an effort to maximize the use of technologies available in the Smart classrooms, Hostos has established new policies and guidelines  for assigning Smart classrooms.  The certification process consists of completing a Smart Room Certification Course on Blackboard offered by EdTech.

You are now able to self-enroll in our Blackboard Smart Room Certification Course.  Log in to Blackboard and look for the following module located in the bottom of the third column.

This is what the course registration module looks like.
