Get tech support from your peers
By Nicole Chiu, Communications Coordinator, CEIT
Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear red vests – at least when it comes to a technical issues at Douglas College.
The Centre for Education and Information Technology (CEIT) will have two students ready to help with any tech questions for the upcoming Fall Semester as part of their Students Helping Students (SHS) program.
Kuljinder Kaur and Taranpal Singh will be on campus outfitted in red vests, ready to answer your questions on a one-on-one basis.
Kaur and Singh’s responsibilities include daily scheduled visits to the computer labs, library, Atrium and Concourse.
Both students are enrolled in the Computing Science and Information Systems Diploma program at Douglas College.
Kaur said she can’t wait to provide her expertise to other students.
“Because I have tutored at Douglas before, I know I have the necessary skills to help students in their academic matters. Now, I get to help students solve their technical problems,” she said.
Singh said he’s excited for the real-world experience this position will give him.
“I am looking forward to helping students in every possible way that the position allows me to. The daily interactions with different people will allow me to put my communication and interpersonal skills into practice, alongside my computing and IT skills,” Singh said.
Since its inception, the Students Helping Students service has helped hundreds of students each semester.
If you’re in a technical rut this semester, look for the red vests or contact our student assistants by phone or email.
