David O'Steen
Senior Instructional Technologist; Director, Blended Learning Initiative

As the Associate Director of the Blended Learning Initiative, David consults with faculty to help design appropriate projects, and manages and coordinates the production, implementation and support of these projects in their courses. Since 2013, he and Laura O'Brien have helped plan, design, create, manage and support all our WellesleyX courses. David provides assistance with using technology for teaching, learning, and research, specializing in the sciences.  He also coordinates, consults, and plans any technology services from LTS for the Science Center overall.

Supporting academic use of edX, Sakai and Google Apps are a primary focus, but he's also a whiz with spreadsheets, HTML, and CAD, and able to get MATLAB to properly calculate simple algebra if you give him enough time.
