About the TLC

PC TLC LogoLocated in the Library in room 439, the Technology Learning Center is a place for staff and faculty of Porterville College to come and resolve their technology needs. The TLC provides advanced instructional technology tools such as scanners, Webcams, microphones, video editing tools, and image editing software, along with the standard computer programs found on campus. The TLC also maintains a small catalog of up to date articles on instructional technology, covering both theory and practical applications, to help spark ideas for your own integration of technology.
