DOT Foods Donates Tablets to OFTC Commercial Truck Driving Program 

DOT Foods Donates Technology to OFTC Commercial Truck Driving program.

Oconee Fall Line Technical College’s (OFTC) Commercial Truck Driving (CTD) Program recently received five Samsung Galaxy tablets to aid in streamlining the grading process and enhance instructor-student interactions by DOT Foods in Vidalia, Wednesday, May 22.  

“The tablets not only expedite the grading process but provide instructors with the flexibility to digitally assess students immediately on Vehicle Inspection Skills, Basic Range Skills and On-Road Skills,” shared Lee Radney, Dean of Trades and Industrial Programs at OFTC. “This real-time assessment capability will enhance the student learning experience by providing immediate feedback.”  

Earlier in the year, the CTD Program received a subscription to SAMSARA, a cloud based Electronic Logging Device. Having access to both SAMSARA and the tablets will provide students with a learning environment that closely resembles what they will experience when hired by a transportation company.  

“The tablets also make it much easier and more efficient for students to conduct the pre-trip inspection and log driving hours accumulated to satisfy the Entry Level Driver Training requirements,” Radney shared. “These tablets are a game changer for students in the CTD program.”  

“The OFTC Foundation is extremely grateful for the support of DOT Foods towards our CTD program,” shared Kathy Aaron, OFTC’s Executive Director of Institutional Advancement. “This donation not only empowers the program to embrace digital advancements but underscores the commitment of industry partners towards nurturing future professionals in the field of commercial truck driving.”
