Educational Foundation Book and Emergency Funds Depleted

The Educational Foundation Book and Emergency Funds is depleted for Spring 2013. Thank you to all faculty and staff for coordinating with your students to ensure that they have everything they need to be successful in school.

Your support of the We Are Western Employee Giving Campaign is critical, as the funds raised directly benefit the Book and Emergency Funds, among other initiatives to improve the lives and academic success of students at Virginia Western. Thank you for your generosity and commitment to our students.

For more information about the Employee Giving Campaign, visit www.virginiawestern.edu/foundation/giving.empgiving.

Do you want to help your students improve their learning habits?

The Media Geeks would like you to take a few minutes to watch our video about how using Panopto can help students get better grades and improve study habits (So the students say!)  http://youtu.be/BmXrUz9cp7o 

And if that's not enough to convince you to at least give it a try, here is a recent quote from a professor here at VWCC (name withheld to protect the innocent):

Here is a testimonial from someone who thinks that technology will be the downfall of civilization . . . I have used Panopto to keep from getting behind in my MWF lectures in XXXX when we are out for snow days.  I have been taping my class lecture on Thursday if there is snow in the forecast and then posting it for my Friday classes when we miss, so am able to keep all my classes on the same schedule and not get too far behind in the MWF sections.

So, I have to admit, that yes, this technology is very useful and that even I can figure out how to use it if I try.
