I worked with Russduring my tenure at Grantham University.Of more than 150 active courses during any given week with over 100 hundred facultyinvolved, Russ stood out from the rest in the outstanding way that he worked with onlinestudents. My team designed the curriculum but Russ made courses come alive byapplying other technologies and media. He was extremely engaging with students bybeing virtually available at any given time, using virtual conferencing to collaborate withstudents, and frequently offering online virtual office hours.Faculty feedback showed that students well-regarded him. We were so impressed with hisuse of technology and his commitment to students that we invited him to present to all ofus at our annual Academic Affairs offsite. I had not seen this done in previous years sincethe offsite tended to be singularly focused on business and process. The Provost felt thatwe needed to shift our focus and become more student-centric and we believed that Russcould provide tremendous insight on our strategic direction. His presentation andfeedback was outstanding.
