Director of Distance Education (Former Employee), 1168 Bishop St, – January 6, 2014
I created a $30,000,000 dollar a year income stream for HPU. I brought the idea of online education to HPU tin 1997. I taught the first online class there in 1999. I was hired as Director of Distance Education in 2002. My job was to show the faculty and administration that DE was workable and beneficial. On a daily basis I taught faculty how to teach – more... online and then supported them during the course of the semester. I helped administrators choose appropriate software and hardware.
The hardest part of the job was explaining DE to people who did not want to understand it.
College life is saying good bye to your childhood and hello to your future!
Student-Athlete and Sports Clinic Facilitator (Former Employee), Honolulu, HI – September 30, 2013
Pros: being exposed to all the cultural diversities
Cons: having to say goodbye to friends at graduation
What a wonderful experience I had as a four year student-athlete at such a reputable establishment. I got to experience life in the business district of downtown Honolulu and was also exposed to many different cultures. The professors made learning fun and easy. The athletic department also afforded me the ability to pay for my education playing a sport – more... that I loved. The best part of school was being able to give back to Hawaii's youth at our sports clinics. The hardest part of college were the exams. – less
