Working across boundaries and business units to produce an excellent learning experience is common practice for Margie Vest and Jason Wright. Margie is the Director of Online Learning & Continuing Education for Jefferson College and Jason manages the Academic Technology Team which is part of Carilion’s Technology Services Group.

Together Margie and Jason have developed a team of instructional designers who work collaboratively to develop products and services to support Jefferson College faculty that teach online. This shared vision also addresses the holistic needs of the online students from application to graduation. The team’s goal is to develop and implement strategies to improve quality, consistence, and accessibility of online courses and support services.
