Primary Persona - Sarah Windsor

Overwhelmed Faculty

Description

Sara taught at the University of Pennsylvania before joining MIT 2 years ago.  She is married with 2 kids and stays extremely busy teaching an undergrad psychology course for the 2nd year and a new on-line course in organizational management.  She is fairly comfortable with computers.  She's excited to be using technology to help with her teaching but she sees as a means to an end in order to stay in touch with students and allow them access to course resources when they need it.  In fact, the LMS will replace her face-to-face communication with students for her on-line course. 

She knows that even students she sees in class twice a week would like to her to be more responsive and looks to the course site to help with that.  She used Blackboard at PA and notices that she has expectations based on that experience...some good, some bad.
