Out on a Lim, this blog, contains my reflections on learning at a distance. As of July 1, 2011, I serve as Associate Dean for Higher Education in the School of Distance Education at Andrews University, with a dual role at Griggs University and International Academy while Griggs and Andrews merge.
This blog also contains the archived posts of two past blog sites. I thought it appropriate to collect all my blog reflections in one place. One blog, Videoconferencing Out on a Lim was about my distance learning coordinator experiences, curriculum thoughts, and technology rants related to k12 videoconferencing, mostly H323 videoconferencing. I wrote this blog while I coordinated videoconferencing for 18 school districts in southwest Michigan. In that position, I supported 70 Polycom units and Tandberg infrastructure (MPS, Gateway, Gatekeeper and TMS) from 1999-2011.
The other blog, Leadership Out on a Lim, was my learning blog while participating in a job-embedded, competency based, distance Leadership degree from Andrews University. That blog’s posts have also been imported here for archival.
Disclosure: The opinions on this blog are my own and not necessarily those of my employer, Andrews University.
Why videoconferencing out on a lim? It’s a play on my name (Janine Lim).
