Digitally Invested: Teaching and Learning with Online Images

Friday, January 1, 1999


The Digital Image Database instructional system was developed in response to increased student enrollment generated by the new General Education program at James Madison University. Already utilizing its resources to the fullest, the Visual Resources Center projected its inability to meet demands of added course sections and instructors. In 1998, faculty members were awarded an in-house grant from the Center for Instructional Technology to develop a system to alleviate this strain. This system is an example of how technology can positively impact faculty and student success when appropriately integrated into the teaching and learning process. This paper encompasses project development and design, cost, instructional impact, institutional impact, and faculty and student assessment.
