University of Central Florida
Assisted with the administration and content creation of several courses in the Digital Media program of study.
I served as a Teaching Assistant and Graduate Teaching assistant in the Digital Media department for several courses involved with media production.  Each course varied by needs that I worked in.
 
For a couple of courses I worked collaboratively on outlining the curriculum and learning material.  It was then broken up for individuals and I created several aasignments targeting specific lessons.  Assignments ranged from individual papers to group projects.
 
With course labs I would operate them and guide students through lessons, both lecture and hands-on in learning the tools/software.  When time-permitting I would run additional workshops covering elective topics for the material.
 
Setup the online presence for every course.  So I would handle the web version, setting it up and monitoring students progress through assignments and discussion forums.  Also would monitor through grading submissions.
List of courses I worked in were part of the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science programs in Digital Media.
