Alan Levine feels weird writing about himself in the third person.
Regardless, he is recognized for applying new technologies to education. A pioneer on the web in the 1990s, Alan shares his ideas and discoveries at CogDogBlog. Among his interests are openness and sharing, strategies for connected learning, building tools for attribution, exploring new forms of web storytelling including 50+ Web 2.0 Ways To Tell a Story, pechaflickr, teaching and building sites for courses and projects like ds106, Networked Narratives, Ontario Extend, and unleashing WordPress based tools with the vague name of SPLOT.
He typically consults with higher educational institutions on digital technologies and the affordances of the open web, working with a variety of higher education institutions and organizations such as eCampus Ontario, Coventry University, the University of Guadalajara, Creative Commons, Virginia Commonwealth University, Universidad del Sagrado Corazón, The Open University, Digital Media Hub, and Mozilla. Additionally, he develops open web-based tools shared openly on Github. Some people invite him to visit to do keynotes and workshops.
Alan's recent major projects included facilitating/encouraging faculty participating eCampus Ontario Extend project, designing a leadership development site, building and co-leading the Mural UDG project, and teaching at Kean University. He developed the platform and faciliated activities (on-site and online) for the UDG Agora Project, a faculty development effort for almost 400 professors at the University of Guadalajara managed by the Justice Institute for British Columbia. From October 2014 - March 2015 Alan was an Open Learning Fellow at Thompson Rivers University where his portfolio included producing the You Show faculty development series and developing the suite of "SPLOT" tools. He has also been an instructional technology specialist at the University of Mary Washington following leadership positions at the New Media Consortium and the Maricopa Community Colleges.
He is done talking about himself... but scroll, there is more...
