Joanne is a formally trained media designer, holding a diploma in Digital Multi-Media Technology from Red River College. Joanne is dedicated to creating digital media for university online courses from the perspective of not only a digital media designer, but also from the advantage of being a current U of M student, where she is a few courses away from obtaining her degree. Joanne appreciates the importance of online learning, and her role in enhancing the online courses the U of M makes available to everyone for continuing their studies in their own time and at their own pace.
