The LearnDot website was created by TCC’s Learning Network as a centralized location for online educational resources that help TCC students develop their college skills or support their studies in any subject field. This site provides easy access to primary TCC tools (email, canvas, support, etc), as well as a central space where url links can be presented, described, and rated by the TCC student and staff body, so that the most useful websites can be discovered and used effectively!

This central resource allows students and instructors to easily access excellent and freely available educational content and tools.
