This project requested faculty proposals to develop academic programs that make effective use of technology to offer flexible, high quality and affordable education for undergraduate students who have attended college without receiving college credentials and graduate students who seek new avenues. (2015 - 2019) 

My work reflects course, program, and departmental UX design at Portland State University. My work on these projects include accessible UX design with a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion, and additional product integration such as adaptive software and e-portfolios.
