Playing with Technology

Upcoming summer projects in i.t.

Many things on my plate for this summer and as usual not enough time to do them. I’ll be getting the new WPMU server’s home site finalized and probably try to develop/adapt a couple themes for use as faculty website templates. Along those lines, if anyone knows how M. Jackson Wilkinson is doing the cool stuff he is on his site please let me know. I’d like to try and adapt his site for use as a faculty website template. In addition to this I’ll be trying to get iTunes you off the ground (still waiting for the keys to get it setup). I need to be lead on the Moodle project team and make sure Moodle gets upgraded, and that we draft some formal policies course creation, backup, and deletion. There is also the woodle usage report to finish.

In addition to this I’ll be going to the Moodle users meeting at Smith College next week and to the NMC conference in Monterey a week or two later. I’m looking forward to these opportunities to network and learn. The sad part is that the two events cut out about 8 days from the already limited time I have (really starting to hate silly ten month contract) to get all of this stuff done. I’ll just have to muddle through as best as I can.
