THere may be some great material in here or older projects to zoom through. Some of these may be canvas packs, but there could also be BB materials.

MERLOT.ORG

Slightly less about what we do, but it is a repository for multimedia.

These are some great resources, but they may be old.

Some of these sources can help us so that we don’t have to reinvent the wheel.

Google academy, hubspot, codeschool, are great places we can also grab materials from. If this introduces something we don’t have time to working with, or something which may inspire a different kind of learner. If you see anything out there which has some relevance, grab it and see what you can bring to the table.

If you find little snippets created that cannot be covered in the class, but the materials already exist, run those as small, one-shot deals

Brackets in the lab

Brackets will be put in the lab. Brackets runs for free. Sublime is roughly $50 per license. We cannot use a cost program when we could also have a free resource. Our hope is to have a cradle-to-grave system of consistent program usage in WEB technologies.

Class Upgrades

GRD142 seems to miss its pace and GRD241 finds many students falling flat.
GRD110 seems to have lots of issues with retention.
WEB140 seem to run into the perrenial problem with retention. Design students seem to split- both top and bottom tier students are graphic design students

Summer schedules

Summer faculty will need to have a single day of the week. Any issues needed by Alison can be fixed by Cindy if needed

Datatel

Julie’s secret sauce may stop working. Datatel may be able to be updated in a few extra months. Datatel does not like edge

Project Management (2013) Certification Achieved!

Project Management (2013) Certification Achieved!

Since the end of the semester is here, but the summer semester hasn’t begun, I’ve decided that the time is right for me to cover some certification bases. Project Management is a skill that one can never seem to get enough training in. My PMP (Project Management Professional)training was some time ago, and the last project management update I received was related to the changes made in 2008 related to the PMP testing changes.

With this empty time, I’m currently working on a grant with one of my co-workers (gamification of collegiate courses by Tyler Dockery, MAEd and Nicolas D’Agata, MSEd). Before the time for the summer semester is heavy upon me, I took today to get some of those updates to the PMP knowledge base under my skin so that I can be better prepared for the future.

Glad to know that all of my studying paid off, perhaps I wont need another upgrade for a few years now.

MS Windows 8 Desktop Administration Certification Achieved!

MS Windows 8 Desktop Administration Certification Achieved!

Since the end of the semester is here, but the summer semester hasn’t begun, I’ve decided that the time is right for me to cover some certification bases. Windows 8 has been with us for some time, but I have had a hard time answering questions about it in the ILC at Wake Tech Community College. It was probably time for me to get up to speed on this.

With this empty time, I’m currently working on a grant with one of my co-workers (gamification of collegiate courses by Tyler Dockery, MAEd and Nicolas D’Agata, MSEd). I’ve been looking into information on WIndows 8 over the last week or so in my downtime, as well as brushing up on project management specifics.

Glad to know that all of my studying paid off in spades. Think I’ll do much better in the ILC because of this

Project Management (2008) Certification Achieved!

Winter is here and I’ve decided that the time is right for me to cover some Project Management content. My PMP (Project Management Professional) training was some time ago, and It’s time to update the information I received related to the changes made in 2008 to the PMP testing changes.

Glad to know that all of my studying paid off, perhaps I wont need another upgrade for a few years now.
