INS DSG 619: First post

The inaugural post for INS DSG 619: Design and Instruction of Online Courses

1. What made you want to take this course?

I thought that this course looked pretty interesting. I believe that I can use what I learn in the class for both current work requirements and for hobbies. I think I will be able to use the material at work to create online classes that deal with library related training - this is the work aspect.  One of my interests is teaching Greek online, either in a synchronous or an asynchronous manner - this is the hobby aspect (haven't quite figured out if I want to do this full time, and if so, how to do it).

2. What are three things that anyone who knows you, knows about you?

The three things that people who know me know about me are:
1. I am fluent in Greek
2. I work for the UMass Boston Library
3. This is my second semester in the ID program
