I am an MBA student at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. My concentration is in IT and Marketing Strategy. I am also working with the eLearning office at the Department of Business Administration. I am working on several projects related to blended learning. It is a fairly new office and our projects have just started to pick pace. I am working with several professors to record, edit and upload their micro lectures as part of their blended courses. I am also working on several other initiatives related to that like iBook and Moodle. I am working to build a streamlined process for the office and future in-house and to-the-customer marketing strategy for the office as well. I am interested in learning from other scholars working in similar fields about the best practices in this field. Further, I would like to share my ideas about the projects and the best way to implement those.
For HASTAC, I am particularly interested in discussions and projects related to eLearning and Social Media that focus on how to build, develop and market such initiatives. I am very excited to be a part of such a vibrant, diverse and distinguished community.
