The Follow-Up Report
Just as the socioeconomic dynamics of the academy in our society spawns numerous
companies, centers and other groups based on the work of a particular academic ―guru‖ or
entrepreneur, it also gives birth to numerous college centers, projects, and movementsfounded on transient grants from foundations and government agencies. Often the fundedactivities cease when the initial grants expire, but their material outcomes may remain onlinefor future reference. Thus I have also included links to the archived resources andpublications of now defunct college centers, programs, and other initiatives. Some of theseresources may remain available indefinitely, but others may disappear at anytime with somefuture redesign of the host website or may be archived in a new location.The directory also includes links to websites and pages posted by individual practitioners.The potential transience of personal websites is very high and the lifespan of faculty pageson institutional sites is also indefinite. Finally, the number of personal and institutional blogshas exploded in the last few years due to the free hosting services (even replacing many weband email based newsletters). Many colleges now create blogs and wikis as part of anaccreditation self-study or institutional response process. Many of these are created as partof a kick-off effort but are not adopted by the intended users nor maintained by their creators.Generally, links to blogs or wikis in this directory have only been included if they have currentpostings and have remained consistently active for a few years.Compound words with an internal capital letter between the parts are alphabetized as if thename was two words and hyphenated words are alphabetized as if the dash was a spacebetween letters (e.g., eLumen, FedStats and Ed-Data are alphabetized as e Lumen, FedStats and Ed Data).
annotations‖ for the websites are included in quotes but may have been edited for
style consistency and clarity. All hyperlinks, bullets, superscripts, indents, hard returns andfont variations (including bold and italics) have been removed from the descriptions to create
a consistent presentation. While each sentence in a ―self
annotation‖ was copied verbatim
from the websites, they may include statements from more than one page or paragraph, theirsentence order may have been changed, and they may not contain all of the statements in a
description. Any additions to a ―self
annotation‖ are included within squar
ebrackets. For those sites that do not include usable self-
descriptions for creating a ―self
annotation‖ a very short description was written by the collator.
