The award recipients will work with Instructional Technology & Distance Learning and Information Technology Services to purchase, install and implement the hardware and software components of their grant proposals over the next several months. The technology initiatives will be incorporated into classroom instruction for the 2007-08 academic year.

After the initial implementation period, the grant recipients will present Academic Affairs Professional Development seminars summarizing their efforts and project outcomes.
