After starting out as an Academic Support Coordinator working with the Registrar and handling enrollment agreements and counts, Kris was moved to handling uploads of course material nd tests for the school's online network. Kris was told by his employers that there might be advancement opportunities in the future because of his Master's degree and overall experience that is related to online education, such as instructional design and manual and policy writing.
Kris found his niche when he was asked to help with work on Articulate, a program for video capturing and animation technology. The purpose of working with Articulate is to engage students during lectures. Students will have the opportunity to interact with the content they are learning while the instructor gives a lecture. He will be helping the University further by building its interactive materials and writing its policies and manuals for how to upload course material and addressing college credits. "I feel I am growing to be a valuable member of this rapidly growing institution," Kris reports.
Congratulations on a fast start, Kris!
