Michael Yakiemchuk began his career as a Chinese Mandarin Cryptologic Linguist with the Department of Defense, U.S. Air Force. During this time, he was the first-ever military recipient of the prestigious U.S. Keystone Award for advancements in Crypto-Linguistics, along with many other Distinguished Military Service Medals. Michael then moved on to the National Security Agency in Maryland where he worked as a Senior Instructional Designer and Program Manager helping the Department of Defense define and build their first true Distance Learning Program. Michael moved to the public sector and joined Computer Associates in 1997, working as a Senior Instructional Designer and Project Leader. In early 1998, his focus shifted to developing and designing an offering focusing on Virtual Universities and Corporate eLearning to supplement CA’s thriving Knowledge Management and Portal offerings. This organization has grown to encompass several hundred educators globally who focus on Instructional Technologies, Development and Delivery Techniques. Michael also lectures regularly at the State University of New York (SUNY) in Stonybrook, focusing on how technologies have changed the way learning occurs at all levels within our society. Michael currently resides in New York and travels globally, working with organizations and institutions to find better ways to leverage technology for developing and deploying instructional offerings that will enhance, not replace, the traditional classroom environment.
