Customizing e-Packs in the Redesign of Your Online Course
On November 10, 2004, the Department of Online Learning hosted an interactive workshop designed for faculty who were considering using e-Packs (or publisher content designed for use in WebCT) for online or web-enhanced courses. The workshop included presentations by NJCU Professor and Department Chairperson Bo Yaworsky and Sam McCool, an English Department faculty member at UNLV.
