MCC's Economic and Workforce Development: Annual Impact Report, September 2013 - January 2015

Key stakeholder groups assist in the promotion of MCC Career Coach. These internal (i.e. admissions, student service offices) and external (i.e. Junior Achievement, Rochester Public Library system) partners use the tool in daily work, curricula, or the distribution of marketing materials. These include bookmarks, flyers, and easel- mounted posters. Our corporate partners have also found MCC Career Coach helpful as a resource for the human resource department in researching job descriptions and benchmarking salaries.

The Carl D. Perkins Grant and our eLearning Video Initiative produced a series of videos designed to reveal content, such as equipment and processes that cannot be contained in a classroom. Students view the content before they come to class. The teacher expands in the structured classroom. The traditional classroom is flipped. Over one hundred videos, varying from thirty seconds to seven minutes in length, have been designed for career and technical programming. Everything from optics to career awareness is covered. In one of the optics videos an engineer tests an optical lens using an interferometer (measures the surface finish in nanometers and angstroms). To produce the videos, the EDIWS Digital Production team worked closely with MCC faculty and staff, as well as local companies, on-site. Additionally, industry specific videos were developed to provide career explorers with a quick look at real work in local company locations. These videos are available in MCC Career Coach at
