The Office of Educational Technology (EdTech) represents the College's effort to make technology an effective and integral part of the academic endeavor of the institution. The mission of EdTEch is threefold: to enhance professional development which will empower faculty to apply new technologies that will improve the teaching and learning process; to provide the student body with a level of computer literacy that will enable them to participate more effectively in their education; and to create a supportive environment in which the possibilities of distance education can be realized to better serve the needs of an ever increasing large number of students who find it difficult to fit their family and work responsibilities into a traditional academic schedule.

  • To achieve the integration of technology to improve the teaching and learning through out the course offerings at Hostos Community College.
  • To increase the educational opportunities for our students by developing online courses and program
