The Learning Resource Center computer lab, called the "BEACH," is located on the first floor of the Library & Learning Resource Center. The "BEACH" is an acronym for "Best Educational Access to Computers and Help." The 369 station computer lab serves as a lab for classroom instruction and as an open-access drop-in lab for students. The lab provides instructional support through technology for several academic and vocational disciplines including English, Foreign Language, ESL, Geography, Learning Skills, Math, Nursing, Emergency Medicine, Reading and Study Skills. The Learning Center also supports Ventura College's distance learning program by hosting many of the orientations and exams.
The Learning Center is open to all students of Ventura College for academic and recreational use. Special populations are also served through technology in the center. While the Learning Center acts as a drop-in lab that support student retention and personal growth, the Center also offers students the opportunity to enroll in IDS100 in order to take advantage of instructors available throughout the day to assist with academic needs. The instructors also provide free workshops to provide students with skills in note-taking, test taking, textbook reading, and other helpful hints for succeeding in college.
