Spring 2018 – AAST200 Video Projects

Each semester, Professor Roneka Matheny assigns group projects to all of her students. This semester’s videos from her Introduction to African American Studies (AAST 200) classes were very well done!

She tasked the students with creating an engaging, educational video about an assigned topic.  Many of these videos were created with iPads from the Addlestone Library as a part of the College’s Program to Bring iPads into the Classroom.

Congratulations to all the students and their outstanding work!

All of the videos are available to view on Professor Matheny’s YouTube page: www.YouTube.com/ProfessorNeka.
