                        2005 NMC Summer Conference
                        Welcome to the 2005 NMC Summer Conference! Since its founding in 1993, the NMC’s mission has been to explore
                        and promote innovative applications of technology to teaching, learning, and creative expression. Our member
                        institutions — an impressive list of colleges, universities, museums and other learning focused organizations
                        — have become well-recognized as innovative leaders in the creative application of technology to teaching, learn-
                        ing, and creative expression.
                        The NMC is a very special group of people and institutions that share a vision about the potential of technology to
                        transform human experience. It is a community that values collaboration and knowledge sharing. The work we are
                        all engaged in — using technology to help people learn, communicate, and express themselves — is important and
                        deeply meaningful. All of the organizations that are part of the NMC’s community of innovators bring tremendous
                        creativity and expertise to the exploration of new ways of teaching, learning, and creative expression. There is a
                        remarkable depth of knowledge and experience within the membership.
                        Since the founding of our consortium, NMC members have been helping to invent new forms of interaction, new
 new media consortium




                        approaches to learning, and new ways of communicating with an excitement and energy that has been palpable
                        on campuses. Looking over the landscape that is the NMC today, a tremendous energy and excitement is still in the
                        air as members continue to create new forms and new ideas that are transforming teaching, learning, and creative
                        expression.
                        The 2005 NMC Summer Conference is a reflection of that energy. Working together, we have put together what
                        I think is one of the most exciting and comprehensive programs to date. This year, the program focuses on four
                        key tracks: Best Practices, Challenges & Issues; Emerging Technologies; Technological Leadership and Management
                        Effectiveness; and Tools and Techniques. Each track is filled with sessions that will enlighten and inform you.
                        Two visionary and thoughtful speakers, Henry Jenkins and Stephanie Barish will engage us in keynote presentations,
                        and we will again pause to honor several member organizations with the Centers of Excellence Award, the NMC’s
                        highest honor, and recognition of extraordinary accomplishment in our field. The fun and popular Five Minutes of
                        Fame returns again, with an outstanding list of featured projects.

                        Thanks to the hard work of our University of Hawaii hosts, our presenters, and the many people who worked behind
                        the scenes to ensure we would have a great program and experience for attendees, we are looking forward to an
                        engaging and valuable time together.

University of Hawaii System, Information Technology Services
In 1907, the Hawaii Territorial Legislature established the College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts in Honolulu
under terms of the U.S. land grant legislation. Ten students began classes with 13 faculty members in September of
the following year, and the first graduates received degrees — two in the sciences and one each in agriculture and
engineering — in 1912.
The University has been growing ever since. Today, it is one of twelve U.S. universities designated as land-grant, sea-
grant, and space-grant institutions. The system is comprised of the founding baccalaureate, graduate, and research
campus located in the Manoa Valley on Oahu — University of Hawaii at Manoa; two baccalaureate institutions, one
in Hilo on the island of Hawaii — the University of Hawaii at Hilo, and one located on the western side of Oahu
— University of Hawaii at West Oahu; and seven community colleges on four islands — Hawaii, Honolulu, Kapiolani,
Kauai, Leeward, Maui and Windward Community Colleges. In addition to these campuses, the University of Hawaii
operates learning centers and extension, research, and service programs at more than 70 sites in the state and is
engaged in instructional, research, and service activities across the Pacific Islands and in various foreign countries.
The University of Hawaii system’s special distinction is found in its Hawaiian, Asian, and Pacific orientation and the
leadership role it plays in bridging East and West. The academic program structure and research enterprise of the
University of Hawaii take special advantage of Hawaii’s unique location, physical and biological environment, and
rich cultural setting.
Information Technology Services (ITS), serving as hosts of this conference, is well situated to provide service for the
attendees. ITS provides and supports the data, voice, and video needs of the ten campus University of Hawaii system.
In addition to providing infrastructure and technical support, ITS provides programmatic support in distributed
learning, instructional technologies, faculty development and related access activities.
We hope that you will take time to explore our University and our State while you are here. Experience the Aloha
— that unique combination of history, tradition, and culture of these islands, the place we call home.

about the nmc conference
The NMC Summer Conference is one of the country’s most unique technology-focused events. For NMC members,
the annual NMC Summer Conference is the key opportunity to meet face-to-face, attend hands-on training, and
participate in highly interactive discussions about emerging technologies, best practices, campus challenges, inno-
vation, and pedagogy. The conference is always hosted by a member college or university that opens its doors to
its fellow members in extraordinary ways, and provides not only state-of-the-art computer labs for the conference,
but also a high-level of technical resources and support. NMC corporate and academic members collaborate in the
program and both groups attend and offer sessions, provide hands-on training, share information on new tools, and
contribute in ways that create a strong sense of community and shared purpose. These characteristics make the
NMC Summer Conference one of the most distinctive in higher education.

                          the first time, we have expanded that collaboration into a full three-day institute for attendees
                          that will run in advance of the conference.

                    Based on an extensive review of literature and best practices on quality and online course
                    design, this workshop proposes a systematic process to ensure designing quality online
                    courses. It employs a lifecycle approach that considers quality as an ongoing/iterative
                    process where content, design and production templates are built based on QA checklists
                    and requirements. The workshop is structured around presentations, small group activities
                    and opportunities for questions and discussions. It is intended for all individuals involved
                    in planning, designing or producing online courses and programs.

                    As highlighted in the 2005 Horizon Report, educational gaming is poised to become a key
                    component of teaching practice. This presents a fascinating, powerful, and fun new tool for
                    faculty to explore, even those unfamiliar with designing — or playing — modern computer
                    games. This workshop provides a concise and practical introduction to the whys, where-
                    fores, and hows of gaming. Presenters will review the history and theoretical underpinnings
                    of gaming, and the current research on gaming and education, and discuss how to put
                    them to use effectively. Presenters will also examine — and use — some cost-effective tools
                    for game design and implementation. Plenty of hands-on experience playing games will be
                    provided throughout — no need to bring a bag full of quarters, though.

                    it operates, how it is put together. Good design decisions have a basis: a purpose to uphold
                    and best practices for achieving that purpose. For example, the purpose of type is to be
                    read, and best practices provide conventions for setting type size for optimal readability.
                    Current practices in web design often fail to uphold the primary purpose of the web — to
                    provide access — as other criteria take precedence, such as visual design and interactivity.

                                             With the growing importance of rich media and multimedia on the web, it is important for
                                             educators to address issues of accessibility. This presentation provides an in-depth look at
                                             Flash accessibility. The discussion will include an overview of standards, common concerns
                                             and central techniques. Real life examples will be used to provide a context for the issues
                                             presented. An understanding of Flash authoring and ActionScript will be presumed.

                    “Media Literacy – Who Needs It?!!”
                    Henry Jenkins, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
                            Much of the core thinking shaping media literacy education in American took
                            shape in the 1970s and 1980s in response to an age dominated by mass media
                            production and consumption. Over the past several decades, the media environ-
                            ment has changed dramatically, starting with the shift from young people under-
                            stood as consumers of popular culture to young people engaged as participants
                            in popular culture. What can we learn from looking at young “artists” working in
                            a range of media — old and new? How have shifts in technologies of produc-
                            tion and distribution changed the way they think about their work and created
                            opportunities for them to receive recognition for their creative contributions?
                            What kind of skills do young people need to fully participate in an era of media
                            convergence and collective intelligence? Where are they acquiring those skills
                            and how do we deal with inequalities of participation, a problem of a different
                    order than more traditional concerns about inequalities of access? And what new mod-
                    els are emerging from educational experiments and informal educational communities
                    which might be leveraged to help kids become fuller, more critically aware, more cre-
                    ative, and more ethical participants in this new media environment?
                    Henry Jenkins III, the DeFlorz Professor of Humanities and Director of MIT Comparative
                    Media Studies, has spent his career studying media and the way people incorporate it into
                    their lives. He is the principle investigator for the MIT-Microsoft Games-to-Teach project,
                    which is examining the educational potential of computer and video games. He is one
                    of the founders and directors of The Education Arcade. He writes two monthly columns,
                    The Digital Renaissance, for Technology Review Online, and Applied Game Theory for
                    Computer Games Magazine. He testified in 1999 before the U.S. Senate during the hear-
                    ings on media violence that followed the Littleton, Colorado shootings, testified before the
                    Federal Communications Commission about media literacy, and spoke to the governor’s
                    board of the World Economic Forum about intellectual property law. His books include Hop
                    on Pop: The Politics and Pleasures of Popular Culture (co-edited with Tara McPherson and
                    Jane Shattuc, 2003), From Barbie to Mortal Kombat: Gender and Computer Games (co-edi-

                    Where Old and New Media Intersect. Jenkins earned his doctorate in communication arts
                    from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and a master’s degree in communication studies
                    from the University of Iowa.

                                           Accessibility is a serious technical and logistical commitment incumbent upon all NMCs.
                                           While web standards have matured and software tools have improved, user expectations
                                           continue to heighten. Learn about the most common mistakes and specific techniques
                                           to avoid them. This session takes a look at strategies you can use now to become more
                                           efficient and proactive.

                                           Many college campuses offer workshops during the year to enhance instructional skills

                 Best Practices • Audience: Management • Background: All
                 Workshops serve as great motivators to get faculty to use technology in their courses.
                 However, it is often the case that taking the next step of doing something with the
                 technology is overwhelming for faculty and the enthusiasm and motivation gained at
                 the workshop is lost. This session will provide an overview of the technology mentor-
                 ing program for College of Education faculty at the University of Hawaii. Information on
                 technology survey instruments, student mentoring training, best practices and evaluation
                 instruments will be shared.

                 This panel originally addressed the topic of reaching mainstream faculty in 2000. Flash
                 forward five years and the landscape has changed. The bubble of mainstream users has
                 consumed many NMCs as they seek to deploy innovative projects. Faculty have come to
                 expect a new baseline of services and tools. Assessment is key as NMCs are brought to the
                 table at accreditation time. Join these colleagues for a lively discussion of the challenges
                 of different faculty constituencies.

                                    A key character in Rapid e-Learning is to enable subject matter experts (SME) to directly
                                    author digital content in an online environment. Responding to an increasing demand of
                                    voice content authoring among faculty, the presenters have developed a web-based tool
                                    to assist language instructors to easily generate, manage and assess audio/video based
                                    learning contents. This presentation will demonstrate the production process of the tool
                                    and its convenient implementation. This is an addition to a series of previously created
                                    open-source learning tools.

                                    Tools & Techniques • Audience: Technical Staff • Background: All
                                    CEF is a stand-alone tool used by Cleveland Museum of Art for some 70 microsites, mostly
                                    exhibition-related. Since its creation in 2001 it has also been used to create some dozen
                                    complete web sites for other museum and non-profit organizations. CEF strikes a balance
                                    between simplicity and power which has proven very productive. It is used to quickly pro-
                                    totype sites and it has also been used to edit the content of Director and Flash kiosks.

                 Web content management systems allow content experts to create and maintain site
                 content without knowing anything about HTML or CSS. The CSU Center for Distributed
                 Learning, seeking a content management system for a project later that year, researched
                 several popular options, focusing on open source solutions. WebGUI, which features a com-
                 pletely customizable website look-and-feel through templates, a suite of pre-programmed
                 interactive modules, and an ability to extend the functionality through building custom-
                 ized modules in Perl, was selected. Presenters will demonstrate the use of WebGUI from
                 content expert, designer, and programmer perspectives, and will discuss experiences with
                 the tool, both good and bad.

                   Best Practices • Audience: All • Background: All
                   Pachyderm 2.0 is a new open-source authoring tool designed to make it easy for
                   anyone to create beautiful, media-rich presentations using a set of carefully designed
                   pedagogical templates. Pachyderm is accessed via the web, and no special software
                   or clients are required, other than a basic browser. The complete Pachyderm package
                   will be released in the fall of 2005, but free hosted Pachyderm beta accounts are
                   available now to interested authors. Attendees will see the kinds of presentations
                   possible with Pachyderm, learn how to get an account and author in Pachyderm, and
                   see a live demonstration of the latest beta release, which is now feature-complete. The
                   presenters will also provide a synopsis of the development process and the vision
                   behind the project, as well as the technical architecture and specifications of the tool.

                                         most of the content remains on the shelf in virtually impenetrable cases. What will it take
                                         to be every bit as fluid with media as with documents — analyzing, indexing, searching,

                                         Semantic networking tools (concept maps) have many uses in online and “blended”
                                         (partially online) classes. This presentation includes a discussion about some successful
                                         applications, and proposes new ways of managing online discussions based on concept
                                         mapping. Two main strategies will be presented: the social negotiation of meaning through
                                         collaborative building of concept maps, and the use of a critique model through compar-

Eleven Thoughts on Dilemmas of Choice,
Technology, and Education                                        Yacht Harbor Tower, Ekolu
Management • Audience: Management • Background: All
Our students have grown up surrounded by unprecedented explosive growth in choice.
Related research ranges from the psychological view that excess of choice causes anguish,
to the more positive anthropological focus on the instructural and creative role of “empty
choices.” How has this fluid environment actually molded students’ expectations of both
software tools and educational experiences? What are the consequences for education,
pedagogical design, and online courses? And how can — or should — faculty deal with this?

How to Spot a Turkey in Cyber Space                                        Ilikai Tower, Kauai II
Emerging Technology • Audience: Management • Background: All
Consistent with the 2005 NMC Horizon Report on Intelligent Searching, information literacy
is increasingly becoming a distinct area of competence — largely due to exponential
proliferation of information resources found on the Internet. Even information managed
by tools like Blinkx and Google Desktop ultimately depends on personalized skilled
evaluation processes of assessing, managing, and using information. This session defines
intellectual frameworks for understanding, evaluating, and managing information-skills
that extend opportunities for self-directed lifelong learning.

A Multi-Faceted Approach                                           Yacht Harbor Tower, Ekolu
Management • Audience: Management • Background: All
In 2001, Boston College, a private research university in the United States, with a combined
undergraduate and graduate student enrollment of 15,000, found itself lagging behind
its competitors in eLearning initiatives. Traditional to its liberal arts heritage, its faculty
uses of technology were minimal, except in the sciences. By 2004 over forty percent of
Boston College courses included an electronic component and that has dramatically
shifted course delivery while retaining the unique traditions of Boston College’s
excellence in teaching. Some of the initiatives used to support this endeavor include: new
faculty development, programming, individualized support, project management, new
technologies and infrastructure, and a plethora of library services.

Listening to Our Students: What to Do with What We Hear Yacht Harbor Tower, Ekahi
Management • Audience: Management • Background: All
Students know first-hand how technology can enhance learning. A panel from University
of Minnesota, Yale University and Northeastern University will discuss how to tap into
students’ experiences with technology to find out what works and how to get faculty
to use this input to improve teaching. Panelists will describe the success of an effective
technology contest, processes for evaluating and responding to student feedback and
longitudinal student technology surveys. The audience will be asked to share strategies
for soliciting and using students’ ideas.

Cosmic View, Powers of Ten: A Classic Metaphor for
Learning & Visualization                                              Ilikai Tower, Molokai
Tools & Techniques • Audience: Technical Staff • Background: All
Nearly 50 years ago, Kees Boeke, a Dutch schoolmaster, wrote a visionary children’s book
called Cosmic View: The Universe in 40 Jumps. Multimedia adaptations of this book’s incred-
ible journey through outer and inner space later emerged from both the Canadian Film
Board (“Cosmic Zoom”) and the Office of Charles and Ray Eames’ award-winning “Powers
of Ten.” This presentation will look at the core concept of “zooming” in both space and
time as one of our most powerful learning interactional forms in multimedia design
— and how the book, videos and web sites have now evolved into global learning events
and communities.

                    Center of Excellence Awards
                    Each year at the annual Summer Conference, the NMC recognizes the work of a small
                    number of truly outstanding member institutions with its highest honor, the Center of
                    Excellence Award, symbolized by a specially designed translucent obelisk. The criteria
                    for the award are as follows:
                    The NMC Center of Excellence Award is given to NMC member institutions that have had
                    an exceptional record of success in the integration of technology with teaching, learning, or
                    creative expression. This success may be evidenced by:
                    § the quality of faculty or student work that is in some way connected to the efforts of the
                       institution,
                    § the effectiveness of the institution in advancing the integration of technology with teach-
                       ing, learning, or creative expression, or
                    § the impact of this work on students and learning within the institution or by its influence
                       on practitioners across the academy.
                    The award should be granted without regard to the size of an institution’s staff or
                    resources, and in a manner that ensures equal consideration to successful efforts large
                    and small.

                                     Building an Interactive Campus Map
                                     University of Maryland, Baltimore County’s New Media Studio, in collaboration with the depart-
                                     ment of Geography has developed an interactive map of the UMBC campus. The goal of this
                                     project was to more readily provide the necessary information one would need when plan-
                                     ning a trip to the campus. In addition to providing the location of departments, offices and
                                     parking, the map includes a function-based “Where Can I” feature that provides quick access to
                                     key services. The Interactive map is an ongoing project which incorporates user feedback into
                                     new version development. Current plans call for including photographs and 360 QTVR.

                                     While introductory microbiology undergraduates get hands-on experience with conven-
                                     tional microscopic techniques in the lab they often only hear about the more modern
                                     advanced microscopic molecular techniques in lecture. Cornell University created three
                                     web-based cases which allow students to apply these modern techniques to solve real-
                                     world problems. Paper-based activities guide and model the approach that scientists take
                                     when solving a problem. We will demonstrate “The Fatal Flu” which steps students through

                                     RSS is cool, but how many people really know how to insert content into their web pages
                                     by parsing XML? Maricopa Community College built a web site service and open source
                                     code, Feed2JS, to provide a way for ordinary humans to take the URL for a RSS feed, and
                                     convert it to a JavaScript line of code that can be put into any web page. Thousands of
                                     users are actively “feeding” content from Feed2JS.

                                     Campus Art Exhibits
                                     Before 2003, Clark University’s Visual and Performing Arts Department kept a record of its
                                     annual exhibits in a photo album. Then, ITS introduced the department to QuickTime VR,
nmc


                                     Flash, and the web as a way to preserve not just a catalog of the works displayed, but also
                                     the work of the curator, capturing a greater sense of the space and offering the exhibit to
                                     the community long after the show has closed.

                      The iPodQuizGenerator
                      Today’s iPods can do much more than play music. We have created ‘iPodQuizGenerator,’ a
                      program that takes advantage of the hypertext capabilities of the iPod’s note feature and
                      allows people to create quizzes that can then be run on an iPod. This presentation will
                      demonstrate the program and its capabilities.

                      What do you do when you are working on a project with colleagues spread across North
                      America? Throughout the development of the Pachyderm 2.0 software, the Pachyderm
                      developers came up with a powerful combination of loosely bound applications that
                      enabled communication, interaction, and collaboration. The team chose freely available
                      programs that perform specific functions, rather than monolithic commercial packages.
                      This suite of tools provides an effective means to conduct “extreme programming” tech-
                      niques, leading to higher quality software development than isolated individuals could
                      provide. Come to this session to learn about the setup, and to see it in action!

                                     How can you have an impact on your campus? How do you know if you are succeeding?
                                     What strategies are other NMCs using to make an impact? At the 2005 NMC Directors’
                                     Meeting in February, these questions were raised in a stimulating conversation about
                                     maximizing campus impact. This session continues that discussion, examining the themes
                                     that emerged at the Directors’ Meeting. Participants will be encouraged to share case
                                     study-type stories from their own experiences. The results of these discussions will inform
                                     an NMC whitepaper on the topic that will be released this fall.

                    actual college classes to support or enhance teaching, learning, and communica-
                    tions. The primary approach to the study, now underway, is to conduct first-person
                    interviews with faculty and students on five representative campuses across the US.
                    The first detailed report from the study, to be published by the NMC, is planned for
                    fall 2005. In this session, learn about the goals of the project, the research design, and

                                         position, for which they require skills in technology, research and writing. To meet these
                                         challenges, Academic Computing, the Library, and the Writing Program partnered to launch
                                         RWIT, a peer tutoring center which has replaced Dartmouth’s traditional Composition
                                         Center. RWIT has fostered new opportunities supporting more ambitious projects such

Tools & Techniques • Audience: Management • Background: All
This presentation will explore the legacy of the famous Bauhaus school of design and
art (Germany, 1918-1933) and its later American descendants (e.g., Institute of Design at
Illinois Institute of Technology) as models for the NMC to help create a global online col-
laborative learning and design community for the 21st century. A special focus will be the
innovative foundation course and curriculum, apprenticeship learning, and connections
between art, craft and a creative community that have influenced design schools ever
since the Bauhaus (meaning the “building” or “design house”). This session will look at art-
ist and Bauhaus faculty member, Paul Klee’s “Pedagogical Sketchbook” and other works of
his fellow faculty as part of the curriculum framework developed by Laszlo Mohly-Magy
as a metaphor for developing an online “learning through design” studio and community
for integrating media arts and 21st century skills. Projects of the former Apple Multimedia
Lab, DesignWorlds for Learning’s Colaboratories, as well as colleagues such as Dave Master
(ACME Network), Doreen Nelson (now at Art Center), and Joe Lambert’s Center for Digital
Storytelling will be used as examples.

                                         Software
                                         What are the respective advantages of commercial learning management system (LMS)
                                         software and an opensource alternative? Courses at Humboldt State University, California
                                         State University Chico, and San Francisco State University were each offered to students
                                         using Moodle and the host campus’ commercial software. This side-by-side comparison of
                                         Moodle with Blackboard and WebCT during fall 2004 resulted in feedback from the instruc-
                                         tors, developers, and students on satisfaction levels with each LMS.

Blog-Enabled Peer-to-Peer Learning Environments
This presentation will cover findings from a preliminary study regarding the use of weblogs
in a university health education class. The goals of the research included uncovering how
blogging enables sharing of peer-located and peer-produced learning objects. Additionally,
the pros/cons of using blogging as social networking tool were examined. This presenta-
tion will include a description of how blogging was incorporated into the curriculum, find-
ings from the research, and suggestions regarding the instructional use of weblogs.

Cheap and Easy Audio in Course Management Systems
Stemming from a request by foreign language faculty to update the way students submit
audio recordings of their target language practice, and with limited financial resources
available, Clark University ITS decided to use a freely-available, easy-to-use, cross-platform
audio tool that works with Blackboard Basic, the course management system. In this pre-
sentation, the presenter will show how to move beyond cassette tapes.

Clothing Apprenticeship Online
Teaching the skills of sewing, pattern-making, and historical garment creation has always
been a challenge; add to this other challenges presented by over-enrolled classes and
under-prepared students. In a cross-college effort, faculty members explored this challenge
and participated in the creation of an online VR gallery of garments, historical and modern,
as well as a step-by-step tutorial that shows the construction of basic garment forms, shows
common problems and their solutions, as well as fitting issues.

Constructivist Learning and Pachyderm 2.0
The electronic constructivist learner is characterized by agency to direct their own learning
experiences through learning object systems. This study locates Pachyderm 2.0 as a con-
structivist learning object authoring tool within an investigation of contemporary learning
object discourse and literature. Pachyderm’s template-based structure provides specified
functionality, linkage, and content representation possibilities. An exploration of learning
object form suggests three instructional modes (determined by template function); orga-
nizational mode, investigative mode, and comparison mode. Used in conjunction, these
modes enable holistic learning object construction.

Pocket Virtual Worlds
When people think of virtual worlds, they think of themselves sitting in a chair in front of a
computer. What’s needed is a virtual world in your pocket so you can take it with you. This
presentation will outline some of the ideas that have been explored to make this a reality
by using a PocketPC, a Digital Compass, a Pedometer, and your own two feet.

                                     The Biomes of Homewood: Interactive Map Software
                                     To build a learning community, faculty conducted problem-based assignments outside
                                     of class. Student teams were assigned to specific campus areas to gather and report data
                                     about their areas. The Biomes of Homewood is a flash-based software that enables faculty
                                     to write and distribute assignments and student teams to record and store observational
                                     data and submit responses. Students can view data submitted by all teams, thereby pro-
                                     moting interaction among teams from different areas on the map.

                                     The California State University’s Community of Academic Technology Staff (CATS) operates
                                     a small grants program called Technology Integration Grants for Educational Resource
                                     Sharing (TIGERS), which supplies funds to teams of CSU academic technologists to culti-
                                     vate projects that will benefit multiple campuses. It also provides a unique opportunity for
                                     professional development. Successful TIGERS projects have resulted in award-winning vid-
                                     eos and online faculty training modules focusing on ADA compliance, and the creation of a

                                     Honduras. These tools are intended to be used in conjunction with a series of exercises
                                     through which students can better understand the analytic process which turns data about
                                     material remains into established archeological findings and conclusions.

                                          tainment rather than education. To fill this void, Restaurateur was created: a Macromedia
                                          Director based interactive restaurant management education program. Restaurateur pres-
                                          ents real life scenarios via audio/video segments and offers students the opportunity to

                                          The Virtual Librarian program at Houston Community College System (HCCS) is respon-
                                          sible for assuring that all HCCS distance learning and hybrid course students receive
                                          library support equivalent to the services provided in-house to on-campus learners, and
                                          for coordinating the efforts of librarians, faculty, and staff throughout the HCCS community
                                          to provide library instruction, services, and resources to distance education and hybrid stu-
                                          dents and faculty. Each online distance education or hybrid class that requests one has a
                                          Virtual Librarian assigned to its WebCT course shell. The virtual librarians answer e-mail and

                                          Video production for the multi-media project is the art of adapting the decades old tech-
                                          nology and aesthetic of television to the needs and sensibility of new media. This adapta-
                                          tion involves, among other things, the reassessment of issues of dimensionality, continuity,
                                          spatial logic and workflow. Attendees to this session will learn strategies of video produc-
                                          tion and post-production for the new media environment, including methods for subvert-
                                          ing the established limitations of traditional motion media. Issues and solutions of post-
                                          production workflow for multiple, simultaneous editors will be particularly stressed.

                   “Beyond Words”
                   Stephanie Barish, Creative Media Collaborative
                   If you are reading these words on paper or in an inert form on a screen, you are par-
                   ticipating in our most enduring written form of communication. We’ll call it “plain text,”
                   and it’s been essentially the same since Mesopotamia, through the ages of the scribes,
                   Gutenberg, the typewriter, and the word processor at the end of the last century. We have
                   cleaned it up over time and improved distribution, but the act and the process of what
                   we think of as writing have changed little since the innovation of papyrus transcended
                   the communication arts of the cave walls, clay, and stone.
                   On the other hand, since the turn of the last century, the knowledge and the technologi-
                   cal ability to communicate with media other than words has been dominated by the arts
                   and entertainment industries. Now that we are in the digital era, image, moving image,
                   sound, interactivity, mass distribution, and other advancements are readily available to
                   the individual author, and if these new dynamic media are, in fact, emerging to challenge
                   the primacy of plain text in our daily communications, we are witnessing the first true
                   communications revolution in more than five thousand years. If “reading,” for instance,
                   now includes “watching” and “hearing,” “waiting,” “responding,” and often “writing,”
                   something truly has shifted in the foundation.
                   As the practice of what we have traditionally considered reading and writing quickly
                   evolves, someone must step forward to inject the critical and practical skills needed
                   by the individual to match this tectonic shift in the core. Is your institution prepared
                   to address the basic literacy needs of the 21st century, or shall we leave the job to
                   Hollywood?
                   Stephanie Barish is the founder and Senior Partner of the Creative Media Collaborative, a
                   consulting group spearheading projects and publications designed to spread multimedia
                   expression and scholarship. CMC seeks out and fosters innovations in multimedia expres-
                   sion, developing means of applying them on the ground level of educational and profes-
                   sional settings and cultures in the twenty-first century. Barish is an award-winning producer
                   and a prominent figure behind leading multimedia initiatives that are expanding our under-
                   standing of what it will mean to be literate in the twenty-first century. In October 1999, the
                   University of Southern California’s Annenberg Center invited Ms. Barish to direct a pilot ini-
                   tiative to foster multimedia literacy. She founded and designed the Institute for Multimedia
                   Literacy and, as its executive director, led the organization through five years of growth and
                   progress toward its goals of exploring and realizing the potentials of an enhanced literacy —
                   one that envelops elements of sound, moving and still image, screen language, interactivity,
                   and the written word. Notably over the past year she spearheaded the Honors in Multimedia
                   Scholarship, USC’s first and only university-wide honors program; fostered the Wallace
                   Annenberg Continuing Education Initiative and an MA in teaching program in collaboration
                   with the Rossier School of Education; and promoted strategies for enriching medical educa-
                   tion through multimedia with the Keck School of Medicine. Prior to joining USC, Ms. Barish’s
                   work as multimedia producer and director at Steven Spielberg’s Survivors of the Shoah Visual
                   History Foundation included the award-winning interactive CD-ROM Survivors: Testimonies
                   of the Holocaust, the Foundation’s acclaimed research interface, its award-winning website,
                   the interactive learning center for the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Museum of Tolerance, and
                   work on its Academy- and Emmy-Award-winning documentaries. Ms. Barish holds an MFA in
                   computer-generated imagery and an MA in social science.
