Digital Spaces

Everyone's favorite on-campus destinations

Big-screen TVs you can project your laptop on. 70-inch monitors you can display your phone on. Walls you can draw on. High-definition video conferencing. Blazing fast Internet.

You’ll find digital learning spaces all over KeukaCollege’s campus. These spaces provide all the technology you need and connect you with your classmates and professors in a way you’ve never experienced before.

Whether you’re team-writing a paper together for English, analyzing data for biology, or making multi-layered maps that show crime rates for criminal justice, digital learning spaces make it easy to collaborate and bring your ideas to life in stunning high definition.

At Keuka College, you're only limited by your imagination.

Digital Tools

At Keuka College, your professors are more likely to ask you to take your phone out than put it away.

Your laptop, smartphone, and favorite apps are more than just important tools to help you do homework and keep you connected to the people you care about. Unleashing their power is critically important for your success as a 21st-century professional.

At Keuka College, we’re working to integrate digital tools into every major and just about every class. We don’t want you to graduate from Keuka College simply knowing how to use your favorite digital tools. We want you to understand how—and why—they work. You’ll learn to create and solve, not just point and click.

Starting your first year, you’ll begin creating an ePortfolio. This gives you an online presence to map your learning and showcase your development. Your ePortfolio not only documents your progress at Keuka College, but it teaches you to understand the technology behind your favorite apps and websites, and how you can use that technology to create apps, games, and websites of your own.

You’ll also learn how to use and access our Digital Toolbox, a constantly curated list of productivity apps, games, website, and other digital tools that will help you study and create cutting edge presentations and homework assignments for all your professors.

As you progress through your major and start taking upper-level courses, you’ll get hands-on experience with the latest-and-greatest tools used by professionals in your field. From video production apps to the accounting software used by the IRS, you’ll graduate from Keuka College being able to jump right in with little on-the-job training when it comes to the tools and technology used by industry professionals.

Digital Classes

At Keuka College, our goal is that every single class will use digital technology to help facilitate your learning. And we’re not talking about sitting in class and watching PowerPoint presentations all day. What we are talking about is:

  • Learning to access and verify data in journalism or communications classes.
  • Using video to tell powerful marketing stories.
  • Creating regression analyses that predict customer behavior.
  • Designing ways to use technology to improve health care in developing countries.
  • Using interactive maps and data analysis to predict criminal activity.

So many Keuka College courses already bring digital learning to life, and when you register for classes, you’ll be able to choose to register for those that are “digitally certified.”

We’ve also created plenty of courses you can choose from that compliment every major and are designed to bring digital learning to life for you. These courses include:

  • DL120: Introduction to Computer Applications
  • DL150: Understanding Digital Communication
  • DL151: Introduction to Digital Learning
  • DL201: Systems Thinking: Language and Apps
  • DL290: Digital Learning Field Period

What Technology Should I Bring to Keuka College?

Keuka College is proudly device agnostic—that means we don’t favor Windows or Apple OS—we love ‘em all. It doesn’t matter if you bring an Android or an iPhone. Whatever modern computer or device you bring to Keuka College, it will work here.

There are certain gaming and streaming devices that don’t work on our cyberinfrastructure (although most do). That’s because they’re designed to be used on private, in-home networks—not the enterprise-class setup that Keuka College has. Click here for a complete list of supported devices.

Computational Thinking

Some of today’s greatest problem solvers are computer scientists and software engineers, and it’s not because they’re smarter than everyone else. Computing professionals are great problem solvers because of how they’re trained to look at problems and arrive at solutions: by breaking big problems into many smaller, more simple ones.

Computational thinking (CT) is a way of solving problems, creating systems, and understanding human behavior by using fundamental computer science concepts. CT can be used in any discipline—from computer science, to art, to history, to health care. CT is a way of thinking, and it’s not just limited to solving problems that involve computers.

Check out this video from code.org, which explains how CT can be used to teach children how to draw monsters.

At Keuka College, we’re integrating CT throughout the entire curriculum. That means by the time you graduate, you’ll have spent years honing your critical thinking, collaboration, and creative-thinking skills in order to solve the real-world problems you’ll face as a professional.

Watch these videos to see how CT is used to solve problems in the real world.

21st Century Professionals

Wouldn’t it be foolish if the only people who we taught to read and write were English majors? At Keuka College, we think it’s just as foolish not to teach everyone about technology.

The world of work is changing dramatically in today’s information economy. Experts predict that in the not too distant future, half of today’s jobs will change significantly or disappear altogether. As someone about to enter college, you need to be sure you’re prepared for jobs that require digital capability. Keuka College does that.

The truth is this: A large portion of the world’s population uses computers for everyday tasks, but they don’t really benefit much from the true power of computation. Because they don’t understand how and why computers work, they can’t begin to imagine the possibilities of what is yet to come. And believe it or not, most people don’t even know how to completely use the apps they spend hours a day working in.

For example: Did you know that Microsoft Word provides you with the ability to easily write small programs, called macros, that eliminate repetitive tasks (like formatting a paper). People can actually work between two and 10 times faster if they knew how to automate tedious tasks that they’re currently doing by hand, such as cleaning data, formatting text, and integrating information. And that’s just scratching the surface.

The inescapable conclusion is that the benefits of digital technology depend on what we make of it. It’s up to us to leverage digital technologies in the best possible way. Technological advancements are leaving behind many individuals, affecting a sizable portion of the population. A universal problem for every citizen of this century is how to get access to information and how to acquire the skills needed to articulate and organize that information in the course of their professions.

Keuka College is starting a revolution in higher education. We’re one of the first colleges or universities to completely integrate digital learning, the liberal arts, and hands-on experience in your field.

We want you to be successful as a professional in the 21st century. That’s why you’re going to college. [email protected] is our way of giving you the knowledge you need to make sure you are.

Data Analysis

Computers are exceptionally good at collecting, computing, and aggregating data, but only human beings can identify patterns, solve problems, and tell stories using data and information.

As a Keuka College student, you’ll learn how to:

  • Design tools and instruments that help you collect your own data and information
  • Find useful, relevant data to help you solve problems or validate hypothesis
  • Analyze data to derive your own conclusions
  • Use data to tell powerful stories and influence policies and decision-makers

Check out this video to see how ordinary people, not computers or NASA scientists, found patterns in Kepler data to discover "the most mysterious star in the universe."

Why Learn to Code

Why is it important to understand coding? Are we trying to teach everyone at KeukaCollege to become a programmer?

No. But we do believe that being able to get a computer to do what you want is critical for future employment and for active and involved participation in today's world.

Think about your chosen path for a minute—whether that's in business, the sciences, the health professions, or the arts. Your future will certainly involve a lot of technology, and getting that technology to do things for you. Coding is one way to accomplish that.

Computers are good at doing repetitive tasks or performing calculations quickly. But only people can imagine new ideas and see stories in data.

By developing your capacity for understanding how to get computers to perform tasks quickly and reliably, this frees your mind to create, imagine, and be a force for achievement and accomplishment.

Imagine adding a little computer science in your major, enabling you to perform analyses using open-source software tools, designing media to help an organization increase its brand awareness, or solving problems and saving your company time and resources. That's why you should learn to code.

Digital Studies Minor

The digital studies minor enhances your digital thinking, and you can pair it with any major at the College. Here's how it works:

  • The first two courses (DL 150 and 151) provide foundations in understanding digital communication and coding fundamentals.
  • A third course (DL 201) focuses on systems thinking primarily through the exploration of different computer languages and their possible applications. This course expands on the coding fundamentals course (DL 151), allowing you to incorporate appropriate coding theory and skills into the applications found in the 300-level courses (DL 310, 311, and 390).
  • The next group of courses (DL 310 and 311) focus on analysis, interpretation and effective communication of data (in visual and verbal form), as well as using digital tools and formats in imaginative and nonfiction storytelling.
  • The capstone course (DL 390) provides opportunities for you to integrate all the skills you learned in previous courses and apply them within your major.

There are many ways to apply your digital knowledge to the law and social sciences, and learn to analyze social data to understand how information circulates through social networks. By using computational tools, you can aid in historic fact-finding, or identify patterns within population groups.

Within the sociology program, a recently-added course in digital analytics will enable you to apply what you’ve already learned in the upper-level research methods class and a statistical analysis class to investigate real-world social issues. Current students have applied these skills to cases and activities including an evaluation of baseball statistics for major league teams, and comparisons of census-based demographic data on poverty rates and unemployment between two local counties.

Digital Learning at Keuka College, or [email protected], is more than just teaching you how to use technology. It’s about teaching students regardless of major how to understand technology, how to create technology, and how to adapt technology to meet their needs.

In classes such as Literature and Society in Latin America, students use apps like Padlet to collaborate in class in real time, and work to create an interactive literary map through Google Maps. In Spanish for the Professions, students create a professional blog in Spanish reflecting on their skills, experience, and goals for a bilingual career.
