Mark Hebert


I am a philosophy professor who (after an initial immersion in using computers to deliver course content in the 90s -- Asymetrix Multimedia ToolBook, anyone?) pulled back a bit when it quickly became apparent (being at a small liberal arts college with an even smaller IT department) that I could either keep trying to master each new platform that came down the pike, or be a philosopher, but not both. (That may be a false dilemma now, but it sure didn't didn't seem like it then). I have always used both case-based and problem-based learning in all my classes, and hence "games" are a logical extension of that paradigm. Hence I am eager to see what I can learn here...and am terribly excited to attend. Many, many thanks for letting me in!
