Adjunct Assistant Professor of Art + Design Amanda Robertson was recently awarded one of two Gertrude Cox Awards for Innovative Excellence in Teaching and Learning with Technology for her distance education conversion of Art + Design’s 219 Digital Imaging course. Robertson is also a senior multimedia designer in DELTA. The judges wrote: “Ms. Robertson demonstrates exemplary use of a wide range of commonly available software and modalities at NC State to create an environment ideal to the expression of the class content in an online critique-based course. Tools such as Second Life, Word Press, VoiceThread, and Elluminate in a Moodle setting allow strong collaborative efforts even among students who never meet in person.” More information on Robertson’s course can be found at
