Working within content management systems, I have constructed several websites. Though I wouldn’t say I’m fluent in programming languages, I can usually make things happen the way I want them to with a little dedicated research.
Over the course of the Technology Internship I held under the supervision of Steve Parks, I digitized ten volumes of the Journal Reflections and then built, from the ground up using WordPress CMS, a functional website on which users could access and purchase individual issues or entire volumes.
When I was elected President of the GSO, I spent the summer reconstructing the website from a fresh WordPress build. I spearheaded efforts to get all forms digitized and available on the website, and created a site that was more user-friendly and intuitive for our constituents.
Lisa was my wedding florist. When I discovered she didn’t have a website, I offered to build one for her in exchange for a discount on our wedding flowers.
Writing Course Sites
Each semester, I required students to establish a professional Gmail address so that they could take full advantage of the Google suite of software. Together, students in each of my courses constructed a website using Google sites. Using Google sites as a content management system gives students invaluable practice in composing in online environments and an opportunity to come away with something tangible and permanent at the end of the course. On the Teaching page, the name of each course links to its respective Google site.
As an Independent Study Project, I created this Google Site as a resource for students and teachers learning about Ancient Rhetoric.
