Brief Project Description:
This project was developed for the following reasons:
- To get students to examine, explore, and investigate various types of Web 2.0 technologies, as well as discover ways to use those tools to enhance teaching and learning.
- To have students work on a real-world, team-based problem where they need to develop skills of communication and cooperation in order to create and deliver the needed wiki repository outcome.
- To have students gain a more global perspective, by including team members from universities around the world.
- To develop a practical tool that helps anyone at any time and location review, compare, and select effective Web 2.0 tools.

My name is Kyle Marsh, and I will be your project manager for Project 2. I am a senior at Purdue, however, a freshman in Education. I have completed an Associates Degree in OLS and a minor in C&IT. Currently, I am employed by iTaP and work for UT@P, teaching students how to use software. I am very familiar with almost all forms of technology and fairly technologically proficient as well. Additionally, I am experienced with Confluence, the tool we are using to construct our Project 2.
I am looking forward to working with all of you, and I have very high hopes for this project. There is a lot to get done and only 4 short weeks to do it, but if we all stay focused and work hard and effectively, we should all get As.
Oh yeah, in case I didnt mention this, if you get an A on Project 2, you automatically get an A on the final...
Ill see you all Wednesday. Please post about yourselves here as well, so as we can all get to know each other.
