Although the idea was mine, the video syllabus project started out as an E-Train Express team undertaking at Western Kentucky University. E-Train is a university-based organization made up of technology advocates from Kentucky area teachers and WKU faculty and staff. Our group consisted of six members: an instructional designer from TSOnline, a technology specialist from TSOnline, and four faculty members from various departments, including myself as the leader of the group. During the 2005/06 academic year, the group met on a regular basis, planning and developing the project and contributing with ideas. Our goal was to create a video syllabus for one of our online courses, which in my case happened to be an Advanced Composition course.
