Reliable internet, computers, and a quiet place for online exams
Since March, Learning Technology Solutions is proud to have served over 1,000 students with the laptop and hotspot loaner program, providing them with the technology tools they need to continue their education at UIC during these unprecedented times.
Following the closing of our laptop and hotspot loaner program for the fall semester on Sept. 18, we wanted to update you on alternate resources available to students who may need a device, internet connection or a quiet space to take exams.
