The official course management system for The College of New Jersey

SOCS, which stands for “Simple Online Courseware System,” is designed to facilitate improved communication between professors and students in an online environment. SOCS utilizes the information in PAWS to grant access and create classes for Professors and Students.  SOCS features a wide variety of simple web tools such as an electronic dropbox, resource profiles, grade books, assessment tools, blogs, wikis, and discussion boards.

Note: To access SOCS you must be currently enrolled student or an active instructor.


Do you have material in a non-digital format that you’d like to incorporate into your SOCS classes?  Instructional Technology Services can take care of transforming your analog materials into web-based resources that fit right into your existing SOCS classes.  Please note that there is a 48 hour turnaround time for the completed digitization of printed materials. Audio and visual materials may take longer, depending on the length of the material to be converted.  Please allow at least one week for these materials to be completed.


  • Assemble the physical materials to be digitized and pack them in a standard large interoffice mailing envelope.  All paper materials must be printed on standard 8 ½ x 11” paperPlease do not send stapled or folded materials. Please also make sure that the quality of the original material is clear and legible – the digitization process can amplify imperfections and make the electronic copy difficult to read or be reliably interpreted by an electronic screen reading program.
  • Be sure to include your return address, as we will return your materials when completed.
  • Mail the package, including the form, to: Instructional Technology Services (Attention SOCS Support),  Library room 4.
  • Also available – we will save & upload the document as a word file in addition to the pdf if you have a student with visual disabilities in your class.  Be sure to check the box at the bottom of the digitization form.


Just fill out the attached digitization form.   If you don’t want to wait for the mail you can bring it in and we will digitize and post them to your SOCS account as soon as we can.
