With a US$1 million grant from Lockheed Martin and $380,000 in software contributions from NGRAIN Corporation, BCIT has launched The Cube.
BURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA — (MARKET WIRE) — 11/02/09 — It will transform the way instructors teach and the way students learn at BCIT. It will bring the workplace into the classroom and enrich curriculum – virtually.
