Student Technology Advice and Resource Team (START), is a student led resource focused on helping students understand available EdmondsCC technologies — including EdMail, Google Apps, Learning Management System (Canvas), and putting that technology to it’s best use.  START hosts workshops, develops on-line tutorials, and provides a drop-in, email and phone service for students to ask technology related questions. 

START staff are responsible for documenting and tracking student technology issues, as well as attempting to provide resolution and/or referral to necessary college resources for further assistance. START is primarily staffed by student volunteers and interns from the EdmondsCC CS/CIS programs.
