MCC Administrator Receives Software Company's Impact Award
(Bradenton, Fla., May 29, 2008) - Nancy Edwards, director of instructional technology and distance learning at Manatee Community College (MCC), received an ANGEL (A New Global Environment for Learning) Impact Award at the annual ANGEL User Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio, in May. ANGEL is the learning management software MCC uses to deliver online courses.
"The ANGEL user community is all about teaching and learning. To stand out in this crowd takes more than a little creativity and energy. I congratulate and thank Nancy Edwards for her exceptional contributions," said Christopher Clapp, president and CEO, ANGEL Learning.
Before coming to MCC in January of last year, Edwards was interim director of faculty and course development at Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU). She also has held director positions at two different area hospitals and worked as a teacher and a nurse. Currently a North Port resident, she has a master's degree in health education from Nova Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale, and is pursuing a Ph.D. in leadership and education from Barry University, Miami.
Effective July 1, the name of the MCC department Edwards heads will change to eLearning to better convey the reality that an MCC classroom is as close as a computer.
