Behind the Curtain

blake-kidneyMany of you have inquired as to who is responsible for the new delivery and support systems that are helping to make Western's distance learning program available world-wide. The most accurate answer is that it has been a team effort with everyone in our program contributing to making it a success for our students. When it comes to the actual programming, however, we have systems and web developer Blake Kidney to thank for the raft of new learning and management tools you have available to you.

Program director James Stewart says that "Without Blake we would have a lot of good ideas but no practical way to turn them into reality. Blake not only is able to work with our ideas, but he typically makes them even better than we had imagined."
