Dragonfly Workshops Web-Based Learning Community

Upon acceptance into the program, students will join instructors and classmates in DragonflyWorkshops’ collaborative Web community to complete pre-trip assignments. After returning home, students will continue to work in their Web-based community through early December to develop projects initiated in the field, discuss assignments, and exchange ideas. All students should expect to spend two to three hours a week contributing to their Web-Based Learning Community from their home or school computer. Navigating the Web platform is easy–it’s designed for people with no prior computer experience. To learn more about this unique Web experience, visit dragonflyworkshops.miamioh.edu.
