AMTEC-KY Online Instruction
Once it was evident that colleges would need to move instruction online and push hands-on skills labs out into either late spring or summer quarter, the Aerospace & Advanced Manufacturing Center of Excellence (COE) took action to identify solutions. One solution they brought to the State Board is the online instructional content available from AMTEC at Owensboro Community & Technical College System (KY). SBCTC has approved an agreement with the COE to support a 1-year license of the AMTEC-KY curriculum that is available to Washington’s Community and Technical Colleges through the COE.
The AMTEC-KY curriculum encompasses 13 online “modules” that substantially cover mechatronics curriculum in programs across Washington. These modules also have relevant content for other programs in advanced manufacturing, maintenance technology, automotive and diesel, etc. The modules will be made available to all community and technical colleges in Washington to assist with moving instruction online as rapidly as possible. Anyone interested in learning more should contact Mary Kaye Bredeson at the COE. We are grateful to Mary Kaye and the COE for taking fast action and being resourceful.
