The mobile app for my Master’s program is now available for Android here. The app was put together by two of our students via HTML. I then compiled the app via Adobe Phonegap. This is some of the cool stuff we are doing in our program!

Summer courses begin today. I will be teaching a graduate course: Computer Interface Design. The course will cover HCI and interface design strategies then move into Adobe Photoshop. Students will develop several interfaces and projects using Photoshop. I am very excited, this is going to be a fun course.
For those interested in a Master’s of Instructional Technology or Instructional Design, please check out the video that one of our graduate students at the University of North Carolina Wilmington made which highlights our program:
