||During the last twelve months, the CIT has added staff, created office space and a
consulting room, developed new services and expanded existing ones and worked with
faculty and administrators from all schools to plan instructional technology activities.
In December 1999, the CIT hired its first full time staff member, Jim Bright, in the
role of Academic Technology Specialist. Jim Coble, Director of Library Information
Systems, began working half time for the CIT in January 2000 to support the development
and implementation of academic technology tools. Randy Riddle joined the CIT as an
Academic Technology Specialist in January 2000. The CIT also works closely with Samantha
Earp, Foreign Language Technology Specialist for Arts and Sciences, and has benefited
from having her located in the CIT area and from her active participation in CIT activities.
