Happy New Project Year!

My department's new project year actually begins October 1, but we like to get things rolling a little before that. So recently we have be soliciting new project ideas from the staff and faculty at NTID. Our projects can be requested by anyone, and if it either supports learning and teaching, or if it promotes NTID, we can accept it. Projects are assigned a budget up to $5000 and the use of my entire team's skills: video, programming, instructional design, graphic design, photography, web development.

This year looks exciting. Although we haven't completed the selection process (a collaborative process that the entire team participates in), here is a sneak peek at some of the technologies and concepts we will be working with:

  • QR codes, both for instruction and for administrative use
  • Iphone and Android development
  • Xbox development ("You are the controller!"
  • Using Drupal sites to encourage collaboration
  • "Fake" 3D
  • Use of emotion in instruction
  • Rapid curriculum planning strategies
  • Business skills for D/deaf professionals
  • More collaboration with student workers and co-ops
Looks like it is going to be an exciting year. I'll let you know how things progress!
