In 2007, Rick will be introducing new software in the CP102 computer labs funded by a grant from the WLUSU Student Life Levy. The software allows the instructor to see what each student is doing to keep them on task, allows the instructor to control the computers of all the students to give demonstrations, and also allows students to give demos to the whole class. In addition to his lab instructor duties, Rick sometimes teaches courses in Information Processing and Windows Application Programming aimed at improving computer literacy and programming skills for non-majors.
