more than meets the eyeIt’s been quite some time since I’ve blogged a new post for “Because. That’s Why.” But that isn’t to say that I haven’t been busy. Most of my effort has been directed at preparing, building, and/or maintaining the ever widening number of courses housed on the SPOKE™ network. Since my last entry, I’ve added two more: The Great War, 1914-1918 (taught this past Fall) and a new “Topics in History” which I am currently offering and that may (or may not) turn into something more permanent. I’ve also just completed a re-design of the course site that started this whole thing: History of Flight Culture. Along the way, I’ve learned a few new tricks, developed some new skills, and expanded my ability to deliver course content without having to depend on an institutional IT infrastructure. It seems to be working – or, at least, no one is complaining.

In short, while all appears quiet on the scottwpalmer.com front, alot’s been going on behind the lines. I avoid cross-posting here the many items generated on my various course blogs in favor of providing RSS feeds (look to the right) for those currently on offer. If you’d like to see what’s going on, come on in.
