Adult Education Computer Center
What is the AECC?
The AECC is a computer lab dedicated to helping students from English as a Second Language (ESL), GED preparation, Basic Skills (ABE), and Literacy programs. AECC instructors help students learn more about their subject area by using computer programs and academic websites. They also work individually with students to explain skills and concepts that are confusing, and help students who are new to computers gain the skills they need to use the computer programs effectively.
