    I would be interested in working with you to develop an online history of art and architecture course. I could develop it as a standalone source using a basic art history text or I could work with one of your professors to develop it in a way that works for them.

    I am working on a course that you can see at

    this force can be developed in a number of ways depending upon your theory of education. It can be developed as a project based course were the students interact on a regular basis. It can be developed as a more lecture class where the lectures can be posted within the course material or I can use Skype and enters the classroom itself. The work I'm doing at this point is so That teachers can use the micro lessons at standalone units over history and social studies teachers can use the micro- lessons as adjunct material to their history courses.

    I would be interested in hearing from any school that would like to work with me.

    "Deciding to abandon a purchased product implies that the selection process was flawed, after all." - Very true. Allied to the fact the we must be constantly evaluating technologies
