Every Bloomfield College student has online and wifi access to their own "virtual workspace" on the College's network and servers. Term papers and presentations are developed, crafted and submitted online or shared with professors and fellow students with the support of digital presentation and group software. Multimedia tools are as common as blackboards. Many faculty put courses online. Some build entire learning experiences around the imaginative use of technology.
Besides being a basic tool, technology is also a major focus of several degree programs at Bloomfield. These include Internet Technology, Computer Information Systems, and Creative Arts & Technology. Fueled by the transformation of data and visual information into the lifeblood of the global economy, these tech-based programs are a magnet for both local and international students.
