and the subsequent video “A vision of students today”, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGCJ46vyR9o

Additionally, this workshop will investigate a few of the tools Mokole uses to manage his time and various projects by using technology to collaborate with both colleagues and students. Special attention paid to applications that are device agnostic (meaning using applications that will work on multiple devices,)
