All of the KCTCS colleges have learning laboratories that help students improve themselves in basic learning skills and in subject matter areas.
Students who are experiencing difficulties in meeting entry-level academic skill areas such as reading, writing, and mathematics; students who want to improve their current academic skills; and students who want to review previously learned skills are among those who have found the services provided by learning laboratories to be helpful.
Learning laboratories may use a variety of techniques and materials to assist students. Tutoring services, group work, and individualized instruction may be employed and tests may be given to determine when students have reached a particular level of achievement.
Materials include videos, individualized learning packets, programmed texts, sound pages, and computer-driven materials.
