Project Purpose:

NACCE brings HP LIFE e-Learning resources and insights to the community college campus and explores how these tools can be utilized to foster innovation, enable business starts and create jobs. We also seek to understand how the use of technology (content, networks) in the classroom adds value to the current entrepreneurship education classroom experience and advances our understanding of how community colleges can capitalize on technology, workforce and entrepreneurship trends.

Project Impact: 

HP LIFE e-Learning has been implemented by over 100 faculty/directors in their programs or business centers.  Almost 4,000 students/clients have completed over 30,000 HP LIFE e-Learning courses.  As a result of the program’s implementation into community colleges and small business development centers, learning in the community college classroom has improved student learning outcomes, increased job possibilities, and enriched teaching experiences via curriculum possibilities and pedagogies.

The goal of the HP LIFE partnership is to engage the community college and small business development markets, to:


  • enhance entrepreneurial education for current students of entrepreneurship who are small business owners or aspire to create their own enterprise 
  • enhance entrepreneurial education for current students of non-entrepreneurship disciplines who may become small business owners (hair stylists, mechanics) 
  • partner with faculty to deliver quality courses

Join us!

HP LIFE e-Learning is available as an open education resource for you to use with your students or clients.  To learn more about the program, go to or contact Kim Norbuta at
