Coming Soon! Academic Technology will launch a pilot faculty equipment checkout program at the Alpharetta Center. Faculty will be able to checkout audio and visual equipment so that they can bring authentic imagery, sound, and video to their informational and educational products.
Once the pilot is complete, the checkout program will begin expanding to each of the other campuses at Georgia Perimeter College.
