Types of Instruction Modes:

    • Synchronous – The class meets live with an instructor during a scheduled meeting time. You are expected to attend the class online on the specified day and time.
    • Asynchronous – The class will not meet live on a specific day and time. Instead, you will complete lectures, readings and assignments on your own time, and you will have opportunities to meet with your instructor online during their office hours.
  • Hybrid – A combination of in-person and online learning. Students are typically expected to participate in both.
    • HyFlex (or HyperFlex) – Flexible courses are simultaneously offered in-person and online, and students can choose the modality that works best for them.

Students may print in campus computer labs. In Open Computing Area labs where users log in, just click print then retrieve your document(s) from a release station when you are ready to pick up the document(s). In academic computer labs and quick print stations, users will need to enter their credentials after clicking print.

Live@LaG Print manages printing in the lab and classroom environments. Live@LaG Print assists the College in understanding the academic printing needs of students, allowing us to fine-tune printing policies to match those needs. Live@LaG Print allows students to monitor how many pages are in each print job, as well as a history of the print jobs they have sent. There are also features that allow users to see what their print jobs’ environmental impact is on trees, carbon, and energy.

  • Printing policies
    • Minimize printing multiple copies of print jobs (Copy machines are available in the Library.
    • Print jobs must be 30 pages or less, Live@LaG Print will automatically deny documents that are more than 30 pages.
    • Use only the paper provided in the computer labs. If you need to print on special paper, see a lab technician.
    • The printing of envelopes, transparencies or mailing labels are prohibited in labs.
    • When printing large documents from the web, use Print Preview to print only those pages you need rather than the entire document.
    • When printing PowerPoint presentations print three – six slides to a page to minimize paper consumption. Lab technicians can assist you with this.
    • Documents printed in Open Computing Areas are held in the cloud and can be picked up at any release station by swiping your LaGuardia ID Card or entering your Empl ID, your password is your Empl ID + the last two digits of your birth year.
    • Please report any printer problems immediately to a technician.
    • Specialty computer labs, such as the ePortfolio, Library Media Resources, and SGA Study Hall labs provide users with special balances that are only available for use within those labs.

LaGuardia Community College established the Student Technology Fee (STF) in 2002 to improve computer services for students and faculty. The fee is $100 per semester for full-time students and $50 per semester for part-time students. In cases of financial hardship, individual students may have the fee waived.

A Committee for Academic Technology Services (CATS) was formed in 2013 to coordinate the use of STF resources. This committee focuses on technological resources directly used by students, such as computers, software, networks, and internet access. Their recommendations prioritize supplementing institutional support, supporting general technology resources before specific ones, prioritizing direct student access over mediated access, and investing in academic or instructional technologies before non-academic ones. They also emphasize maintaining and upgrading existing resources before investing in new ones, while encouraging seeking funding from various sources.
