7 Technology for adult learning must be multifaceted and relevant. The Workforce Education and Lifelong Learning program has taken incremental steps to include technology into the program design for the past 8 years. First using audio video equipment for learner engagement, then requiring the use of DVD lessons for homework completion and finally including Blended learning through Distance Learning. A small computer lab of five computers provided introduction to job search and career exploration via the internet. Common Core standards have now increased the need to further enhance the use of technology to promote career and college acquisition. TU Recycling Center provides a bay of 10 computers Ethernet Drops limited access to the TU network. Wireless access interrupted due to building constraints. Signals blocked. 4 year quest for perfection
