Thank you for visiting our site!
The Minnesota State IT Center has put together this page as a place for Minnesota educators to access online resources to help with online learning, e-learning, and distance.
We will update this page with new resources as we find them.
The Minnesota State IT Center of Excellence works alongside the Minnesota State College and Universities System to help engage students around the state of Minnesota in learning more about future careers in IT. We also help give young Minnesotans opportunities to experience the fun of technology and learn valuable and necessary future life skills like coding and career readiness skills.
