A Shout Out to VS and DL

At yesterday's meeting, our colleague and departmental computer maven presented her subcommittee's work on creating a distance learning template for one of our freshman comp. courses. Using WebCT as the platform, the subcommittee developed a semester's worth of assignments and activities to carry someone new to DL through the course. The new template reflected the conributions of three instructors with three different approaches which were able to blend into one well-thought-out product. From what I understand, this will be THE template for the course, and after using it for a semester, individual instructors will be able to tinker with it. Beyond the template, VS and the subcommittee are working on a training guide for the instructors.

I am very impressed. We're lucky to have VS at our college.
