Marc Landy, a professor in the political science department, is the director of an NEH summer program on John Adams. As a collaboration with the Adams National Historical Park, this two-week workshop is designed to provide community college faculty the chance to deepen their understanding of John Adams in the rich historical context of Boston. Professor Landy needed a website that would serve as a marketing tool to spread the word about the program, as a communication medium for those planning to attend, and as a course website for participants during and after the workshop.
IDeS staff collaborated with a graphic designer to create a public website to communicate general information about the program. The next stage of development will involve creating a Blackboard Vista site that will provide course material and enable additional interaction during the workshop. Once the course is finished, this site will continue to serve as a venue for community support and information sharing as participants take what they have learned and integrate it into their classrooms around the country.
