    My Next Guest: Using my professional network as guest speakers tied to course competencies

    In Fall 2022, I was offered a course within SUNY Oneonta’s Ed Tech Masters Program. EDUC-5088 Instructional Technology Management and Evaluation is a course that asks students to think about the career of an educational technologist, including the mindset of a technology leader, how technology can be used to support teaching and learning, what kind…

    2023- The year of accessible math on the web

    For the last couple years, I’ve been doing training in SUNY around Math Accessibility. Math accessibility, especially the accessibility of equations was a complicated and technical problem, and we needed people to really dig into the issues, find solutions, and be able to express them to other people. In 2019, I was working as a…

    Switching to WordPress Full Site Editing for the New Year

    This week, I redesigned my portfolio to use WordPress’ (new?) Full Site Editing feature. For about the past year I’ve been participating in WordPress’ Full Site Editing (FSE) outreach program. While I haven’t been as active as I’d like to be lately, I really enjoyed contributing to that program. One of the things that I…

    Testing Write Freely on Reclaim Cloud

    Taylor Jadin from Reclaim Hosting created a multiuser instance of Write Freely on Reclaim Cloud, streaming his attempt. Taylor’s livestream The instance won’t live long, but before he tore it down, I thought I would pop on and give it a try. Write Freely has a multisite/multiuser setup, so in 2 minutes I had my…

    Understanding Containers with Docker

    This year, for my professional development I had my institution purchase Reclaim Hosting’s Educational Technology Subscription. Reclaim Hosting has been doing one flex course per month and this month I participated in their Understanding Containers flex course. This is a little paradoxical, but one of the things I appreciated about this course is that it…

    Crowdsourcing ideas with other Instructional Designers – Digital Flashcards and Flipcards

In the Universal Design channel, one Instructional Designer asked about…

    Productive Failure: MathJax and Pressbooks

    As an OER specialist and accessibility advocate, I feel double pressure that when we create openly licensed materials, we have to hold ourselves towards the highest standards of accessibility. That’s not easy when we are talking about STEM, but it’s a responsibility I don’t take lightly. Online, when you have accessible math displayed in a…

    Creating a Community Archive for Domain of One’s Own

    Reclaim Hosting has recently hired an Instructional Technologist from one of their Domain of One’s Own Schools. It’s been interesting to watch how an outside organization and frequent collaborator like Reclaim Hosting responds to new ideas and new energy. It will be really interesting to see if the perspective of being a campus lead for…

    Do you have a design process for OER creation?

    Last year, Jennifer Jensen and I presented at Stony Brook Open Access Symposium. We recognize that SUNY Oneonta has done a lot of successful OER Creation, and though the largest driver of OER Adoption on our campus is high enrollment, general education courses that have existing OER. However, the deep collaboration that OER creation requires…

    Building Collaboration Spaces to Build and Share Interactives

    I have been following projects coming out of Canada for years to build and share H5P activities. For those that don’t know, H5P is a program or plugin for multiple web-building products that allow website creators to create interactives. H5P stands for HTML 5 Packet, and this is significant in that H5P is a great…
