      Hi, Dr. Tull: My name is Dr. Valerie Akeyo. I live in Omaha, Nebraska. I have been struggling of how to fulfill a professional fantasy for sometime not–that is opportunity to complete certificate programs in the field of Instructional Technology. I looked at your programs (certificates) and was very impressed about the structures and contents UNBC programs.

      As part of my education and teacher education training, I had taken four ISD courses and had a wonderful time teaching student teacher how ISD could help them plan and deliver effective and efficient classroom instruction.

      If you get my comment, please can I get your direct phone number so I may ask you specific questions about your program and how I can enroll. I am also interested in post-graduate financial support.

      My email address is: I hope to hear from you soon.

      Dr. Valerie T. Akeyo
