I've been working in the digital education arena at the University of Michigan-Dearborn since 1999, when I was a sophomore student there. I helped create the courses for the university's first online degree program (Master of Education in Special Education) and have been involved in many related tasks since then. I am now the primary Canvas administrator for our campus, and oversee most other integrated tools as well.
