Michael Powers is currently Director of Electronic Communications at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, where he has worked since 1999. A former English professor, Michael coded his first HTML in 1993 when he probably should have been reading Shakespeare.
Since that time, he has moved from web-enabled English professor to e-learning developer to web developer to Director of Web Services and then to his current position. (He is looking forward to returning soon to his regular position as Director of Web Services and getting back to the web full time.)
As IUP’s Director of Electronic Communications, Michael has overseen the university’s transition from its static HTML website to its first content management system. He has worked to leverage the CMS throughout IUP’s communications infrastructure, including the development of IUP Daily: a daily e-mail newsletter for faculty and staff that draws on content from the university website. This publication has served as the model for several similar e-mail publications including newsletters for parents, alumni, and students. He is currently working on creating mobile solutions for IUP, both web-based and app-based.
Michael serves on IUP’s Academic Computing Policy Advisory Committee and its Emerging Technology Committee. He has presented on user research at eduWeb and blogs over at Museyroom.
