A really dedicated and enthusiastic group of students in Michael McCarthy’s News Gathering course put together one hell of a resource on the state of distance learning and UMW and beyond. Kudos to Emily Montgomery, Sarah C. Smith and David Tindell on a project came out remarkably well, and what is apparent is that their hard work has produced some real fruit that I’ll be paying very close attention to over the next month as I bring Digital Storytelling fully online for the Spring semester. It’ll be the first fully online class for the Computer Science department, and still have a lot to learn from all the research this group compiled and presented so compellingly.
Man, there has been so much great work at UMW this semester that it is almost impossible for me to cover it all. But over the next two weeks I’ll try and cover as much of it as I can.
