Accomplishments have included the introduction of an effective Student Technology Assistant (STA) program, the promotion of the utilization of course management software for both classroom and distance education courses, the encouragement of University budgetary expenditures to expand the number of multimedia classrooms, the endorsement and encouragement of the Library's information literacy programming, and the promotion of the use of technology in teaching and learning through the sponsorship of a number of best practice workshops.
