Hello from a few miles north east of Bloomington, Indiana near the Indiana University campus. I am the Technology Assistant for L213 Literary Masterpieces and soon L214: a Shakespeare lecture class we are converting to an online class this summer. I have a background in humanities and music and am completing a degree in Computer and Information Technology at IUPUI. I hold two certificate degrees: one in Information Technology and one in E-commerce Development. This summer we have introduced the wiki tool into our L213 class as part of the curriculum and I have partnered with the Instructor to design and set up the content for the students using WetPaint as our wiki tool.

I am currently working as the Technical Assistant for Brian McDonald, Senior Lecturer with the English Department at IUPUI: http://www.iupui.edu/~british/McDonald.html I also serve as the Volunteer IT/Communications Director for FHL International, Inc.: http://fhlinternational.org/
This is my personal blog: http://mereed.wordpress.com/ I write essays dealing with Christian apologetics.
This is a screenshot of our L213 class wiki called "WikiGold", a class eNewsletter we turned into a wiki. We hope to preserve what students contribute to the class from year to year to enhance learning and student reflection. We created a manual of style and a practice page for the student's first assignment to get them used to the wiki. I also created a short tutorial with screen shots to show them how to add text and images as well as videos from YouTube.
