Our new Mondopad was introduced to the Board of Trustees of the CPC on October 16th. It was purchased with donations from a select group of trustees and members, among them Tom Peterson, Board President from 2006-2009. The Board embraced this opportunity to recognize Mr. Peterson’s contributions to the Center, including his leadership in securing a sound financial position for the organization which benefits us still.
Our IT consultant led trustees in a training session in the operation of the new Mondopad. The state-of-the-art, 55-inch touchscreen device will be used for instruction, programs and conferencing. The Mondopad uses all Office documents, WORD, Excel, PowerPoint, and others. It has a whiteboard feature for annotating and sharing ideas. Documents can be emailed directly to the Mondopad, or a thumb drive can allow easy upload of documents.
The Mondopad, which was the most significant part of a broader IT upgrade, has already been used in a class on neuroscience taught to CPC students. The Education Committee is updating its curriculum to a wider range of students, who we hope will be pleased with our enhanced communications technology.
