Abstract

For the past six years, graduate students enrolled in an Instructional Technology web design course at the University of Houston have been learning technology skills by working on authentic educational web projects with community-based arts organizations. This article will present an overview of the projects that have been developed during this time and explore the process that has evolved since the course began in 1997. The article will describe the changing nature of working with clients to create useful websites and develop meaningful technology-based resources for educators. In addition to describing the results of the collaborative partnerships between the community-based arts organizations and the university, the major challenges will be examined from the viewpoint of various stakeholders, including the graduate student developers, the clients, the subjects of the projects, and visitors to the sites. In addition, the next steps for adding more relevant content aimed at teachers and students will also be discussed.
