Supporting Comprehensive Small- and Large-Scale Implementation with the C&C App

Thursday, October 12, 2017 • 2:50pm

The C&C App is a new, web-based application designed to help mentors, coordinators, and administrators monitor and report student progress via their tablet or computer. The C&C App not only replaces paper-based monitoring forms, it provides numerous enhancements and customizations for coordinators and mentors, as well as on-demand reporting features. In this session, Check & Connect program manager Eileen Klemm and a member of the development team from the University of Minnesota's Educational Technology Innovations will demonstrate the new and long-awaited C&C web-based application and share how the C&C App supports comprehensive, small- and large-scale implementation.
