First day of class!

Hello everyone,

Welcome to the Spring 2014 semester. We here at Learning Technology Services hope that your classes get off to a great start. If you have not seen it yet, be sure to watch the first LTN show of the year. It gives you some start of semester reminders and features an interview with Simulation and Game Development professor Dr. Farhad Javidi. Today we had hoped to bring you a special episode summarizing the State of Digital Learning, but we still have some work to do on the presentation. There is a lot going on with educational technology. Stay tuned for that, we should have it to you soon, and it will be worth the wait.
