North Shore Community College is a leader in technology within Massachusetts' community
college system offering students a broad spectrum of course-related technology services to
support and enhance their academic experience.
Award-winning NSCC Student Portal
All students have a Campus Pipeline account through which they can get up-to-the-minute course information and
materials as well as communicate via e-mail with their professors and fellow students.
Students may also enroll in courses where faculty have integrated technology into their courses by redesigning
curricula to include new software, online access, and multimedia to enrich teaching and learning. Redesigned
curricula include fully online courses that have no onsite requirements; CAT (Classroom and Technology) courses
that blend the traditional classroom setting with online instruction where students might meet once a week in
a college classroom and complete the rest of their weekly work online; and courses that include a variety of
multimedia presentations and assignments.
Technology Across the Curriculum
NSCC also is committed to promoting faculty innovation through the The Technology Across the Curriculum
(TAC) program at North Shore Community College promotes academic excellence by stimulating and nurturing
innovative ideas by faculty and professional staff that employ technology in support of teaching and learning. The
TAC Grant competition is open to full and part-time faculty as well as professional staff at all campuses.
NSCC's state-of-the-art Health Professions & Student Services Building, the Commonwealth's first state-owned
Zero Net Energy building, demonstrates on multiple levels NSCC's commitment to using the latest technology to
uphold the College's commitment to sustainability. The building's green design and energy efficiency components
will be integrated into course curriculum and engage students in the principles of sustainability. The green campus
will serve as a classroom—a "real-time" laboratory—for students, faculty and the community.
