I've been working pretty hard at work lately. Les and I have some great ideas on making our streaming website (http://streaming.wisconsin.edu) more dynamic. I want to add a bulletin board with forums, and we want to allow users to "review" software tools.
Les got some great feedback about the site, which I have totally designed myself. One woman wrote and said she had been looking for a site that was designed well and easy to navigate, and she said she has never seen a site like this one:) That made me feel great.
I have to present at a symposium on distance education in a few weeks. I'm not nervous; yet :) I will be talking about designing online courses for distance education from the graphic designer's perspective, and the web programmer's perspective (since I'm both :). It gives us a chance to also showcase our work and potentially bring clients in from Academia around the campus.
So, that is my professional life these days. I will be attending the very hip Mac Design Conference and Expo in the beginning of June, in Chicago, and they are hooking me up well. It's a good thing I've gotten used to travelling alone and staying alone in hotels. I will have four days and three nights there, but I'm eagerly looking forward to it.
As for my personal life, well other than going to the gym regularly, and working on recruiting host families for CCI, I haven't been doing anything worth mentioning. But my life is okay. I've been a little down the past few days, but I'm sure I'll just pick myself back up soon. Working out does help a lot :)
