Video Conference
That is Carmen Lujan of UNM, adjusting the monitor on which you see the still empty chairs of a class room in Ashville, North Carolina. I spent the last couple of hours on the Santa Fe campus of UNM doing a Video conference with the class of Dr. Senzon at the University of North Carolina in Ashville. How did that happen you might ask? Well, a couple of months ago my un-official librarian Carol emailed me this link to the Integral Arts class Dr. Senzon teaches in Ashville this Spring. I emailed Dr. Senzon and he asked whether I would speak to him and his students. Then he proceeded to arrange a video conference call via the UNM extension in Santa Fe.

I answered questions, went off on long tangents, talked about this and that, and played a little guitar. I enjoyed the experience and will ask Simon (Dr. Senzon) how it worked out for him and the class…

    You go Carol! :) Looks like you’re doing a fine job as the OL Librarian!

    That’s really a great opportunity for those kids, it’s a shame they don’t offer a class like that at so many of the top echelon private universities, only at a branch of UNC.
