Trent, Fleming receive almost $2 million for new programming, services

February 10, 2014

Peterborough, ON’s Trent University and Fleming College have been given nearly $2 million from the Ontario government for new programming. Trent President Steven Franklin says plans for the portion given to his university include developing joint programs with the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) in Oshawa, ON. Fleming President Tony Tilly says the college will use some of the funding to redesign some of its courses so they can be easily offered online, and to add technology such as webcams in classrooms so students in remote locations can watch lectures. Trent and Fleming will both use a portion of the grant to back up the other’s computer systems to be better prepared for large-scale computer crashes at either institution. Peterborough Examiner
