Technology Lending Program at West Valley College

By Maryanne Mills, West Valley College

We received an $18,000 technology grant from our Land Corporation to develop a Technology Lending Program. We lend out GoPros, 4K cameras and camcorders, microphones, tripods, and will add green screens shortly. We piloted the project in Fall 2017 with our photography and digital media classes and now are offering the equipment to the entire college. So far the response has been pretty good and we are slowly rolling it out through advertising to specific classes we feel may benefit from using the cameras. We also purchased 2 iMacs with Adobe Creative Cloud so that student can work on creating a polished product. To see more, please visit our LibGuide:
