Ogden College Student Technology Information
Technology has become an integral part of the way we communicate and access information in today’s world. Your college curriculum will require you to make use of various programs and applications to submit class assignments, view course content and communicate with instructors. While WKU provides an abundant number of student computer labs across campus, we have found that many students prefer to use their own personal devices for convenience. Additionally, you may need a device for in-class work in some courses. If you do not have your own, this will require the use of a short-term “loaner” device.
If you plan on using your own personal technology device, the below information will help you navigate platforms and operating systems. This page also contains helpful tips and links regarding technology resources available at WKU. This information is designed to assist you in making the transition from the high school to the college learning environment.
