As a teacher at Cuyamaca College, I've developed and taught Web Publishing classes in person and online since 1998. As a full-time teacher, I help develop curriculum, serve on committees, and help with staff development.
I helped with the Cuyamaca College Web site redesign in 2003 and was coordinator for the Graphic Design and Computer Information Science departments in 2006-07.
Surprizingly enough, I won California Virtual Campus Online Teaching Website Awards in 2000 and 2005. I was Cuyamaca's Teacher of the Year for 2006.
As one of three Pacific Bell Fellows at SDSU (1995-99), I helped create online curriculum and resources for K-12 schools, community colleges, and libraries. I did the programming (Perl) and did my share of conference presentations and training sessions. We worked with Bernie Dodge, who masterminded WebQuests with Fellow Tom March.
- Web and Flow is a fill-in-the-blanks Web site that guides teachers through creating their own web-based activities for learners. I did the Perl CGI programming for Tom March. (After all that Perl programming, I REALLY appreciate newer approaches like ASP and PHP!)
- Blue Web'n was a searchable library of Blue Ribbon Web sites for teachers and learners. Blue Web'n received some nice recognition, had a weekly update readership of over 40,000 subscribers, and averaged over 65,000 queries per month. I wrote Perl CGI programs to handle searching & wrote a chapter about Blue Web'n for an American Library Association's ALA Editions book (The Amazing Internet Challenge: How Leading Projects Use Library Skills to Organize the Web).
- Filamentality is a tool that helps teachers create their own Web-based activities. Tom March did all the thinking and writing behind this tool. I helped with the interface design and Perl CGI programming.
