I taught a course, “Introduction to Computers and Applications” at Adelphi University. This was a required course for all students. The course focused on computer hardware and software, basic computer programs such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint, online tools, and web site design.

I created an online course on the basics of electronic portfolio design. This course is designed to be taught in the Blackboard learning management system. The purpose of this course is to teach students how to highlight skills and experiences they have, display them in an ePortfolio, and reflect on them.

I worked with a professor, Diane Paravazian, who was teaching Discover New York. She wanted a way for students to explore an area of New York City and present information about the culture of that area. She did not want students to use PowerPoint. I helped her choose the technology for the project and gave a lesson to students on how to use that technology. The technology that was used was Glogster, a collage making tool that allows for text, images, audio, video, and links.
