In the spring of 2012 Dr. Michael Waschak and Professor Daniel Cosentino at the American University in Kosovo received a Provosts Learning and Innovation grant to establish a multi-campus, student-designed, web-based interactive environmental research portal. The goal of the project aims to foster meaningful collaboration among the faculty and students housed at the Rochester Institute of Technologies main and global campuses; RIT, RIT-ACMT, and RIT/AUK. Media students develop individual and group projects from rich content-driven Environmental data using available student resources and develop shared content using wiki technology through proposed modules in existing courses. This presentation will present some initial success and failures of the proposal with a focus on the benefits of exposure to new technologies and new uses of existing technologies.
