The idea was to take advantage of the symbiotic needs of the two groups. So the Web Development Corps was founded. The founding goal was to promote integration of web tools beyond the IS Curriculum -- both for the Faculty who benefit by getting a web presence, and for the Students who benefit from the hands-on experience.
We are still finding our way, but projects have been started. The goal is to match the needs of the project with the capabilities of the student, while allowing for growth, development, and nurturing of the students along the way.
Most of the projects are completed on a strictly volunteer basis. We envision a time when some projects might be large enough or complex enough for some kind of credit. We hope that those units that can financially support the project will do so. In the future, we hope to provide training and other opportunities for our Corps Volunteers.
