We did it - Fall 2016 is here and the gaming equipment is in the library!

September 03, 2016

Everyone - now that UNLV's Fall 2016 semester is underway, I wanted to reach out to you one final time to say Thank You! again and to let you know that the project moved forward! Our wonderful folks at the Lied Library formed a partnership with me and provided the remaining funding to make this project happen in full, as it was originally envisioned!

 

That means that as I write this, the library has four gaming consoles and a collection of games for use first as course reserves for my students. The goal is that, as word gets out about the project, we will be able to expand this and access across the campus! I am very excited to see how gaming in courses at UNLV will continue to unfold! My very best! 

 

 

Thank you!

Everyone - Thank you again for your generous support of my Rebel Raiser campaign. While we did not raise all the intended funds, never fear. We aren't in bad shape :) What it will most likely mean is that instead of the original goal of 4 consoles, I will be able to purchase 2 or 3, depending on pricing. So the campaign, in my eyes, is still a success and we've accomplished most of what we set out to do. Once the equipment is purchased, I'll update again with pictures. 

 

 

6 days left!

April 01, 2016

I want to reach out to all of you who have donated and give you a heartfelt thanks. I appreciate that so many of you believe in this project and believe in the work I am doing with digital storytelling! 

 

The crowdfunding endeavor will go through Wednesday  April 6th at noon PST. 

 

We continue to move closer to the goal!

 

One of our major papers here, the Las Vegas Sun, interviewed me about the project and my work more generally: http://lasvegassun.com/news/2016/mar/29/unlv-profs-idea-for-new-library-material-is-a-real/

 

 

We're getting there!

Thank you so much to all the new donors I see on our wall! Your support is wonderful. In the coming week or two, watch for news articles coming out about this project in UNLV's own Rebel Yell, the UNLV Foundation's news update, and the Las Vegas Sun! It is UNLV's Spring Break Week, but let's not lose momentum now! I know we can do this!
