alan's web

Note... This web site is pretty dated, in both content ("that is so, like so, 20th century") and technology (awful <font> tags and such) and not even that maintained much any more. See what is more current over at the new CDB weblog...
This is not my normal working gear (though my mind wanders to hiking) as an Instructional Technologist o o at the Maricopa Center for Learning & Instruction in Arizona. Just what does that title mean? Try to distill it from the official description!
