We have an extensive array of computers available for general use as well as specially tailored discipline-specific labs with the latest software tools to support the mission of teaching and learning.
Bridgewater has incorporated computing and presentation technology in all general-purpose classrooms and has distributed internet stations throughout the campus. We have developed a wide range of online applications to support research as well as to meet the administrative needs of the community. We offer comprehensive learning management systems via Blackboard and Moodle.
There are office productivity tools and academic software programs all geared to enriching the academic experience of our students. Our faculty are developing innovative new ways to teach with technology, and they are sharing their experiences with colleagues in forums such as EdTech Day, the CART Celebrations, the Massachusetts Colleges Online conference, and national conferences.
We embrace the community and the region with technology resources like the wireless network, Web-based applications and many other resources, including electronic resources through the campus library. In recognition of these accomplishments, Bridgewater State University has received multiple awards and placed in national rankings of top colleges in the use of technology.
