NewsPress Release: 9/14/01Duell Earns Master's Degree from Persons School of Marlboro College
BRATTLEBORO, VT - Diane M. Duell earned a Master of Internet Strategy Management from the Persons School of Marlboro College in August 2001.
A Millersville, Pennsylvania, resident for 22 years, Duell is employed as director of Web and Multimedia Services at Millersville University. She has worked there for the past 14 years. She also has a B.S. in computer science (1987) from Millersville University.
Duell was among 77 students receiving master's degrees from the Persons School¹s three programs: 40 for the Master of Science in Internet Strategy Management, 23 for the Master of Internet Engineering, and 14 for the Master of Arts in Teaching with Internet Strategies.
To graduate from one of the Persons School's Programs, students must complete a Capstone project, the equivalent of a traditional master's thesis. A Capstone project demonstrates the mastery of the interdisciplinary curriculum and the implementation of an innovative concept for the use of the Internet in an organizational or educational setting.
Duell's Capstone was entitled, "Student Forms Center for Millersville University." To increase customer service, various forms required by students for different functions were gathered together and made available online, using Oracle database and procedures written in PL/SQL. Based on feedback from the campus community, the Student Forms Center is such a hit that it is being used as a basis for creating a Faculty/Staff Forms Center.
According to Duell, "I'm excited about what I've learned through this program and am currently busy applying this knowledge at Millersville University."
Established in 1997, the Persons School of Marlboro College has become nationally known for preparing individuals for the multidisciplinary demands of the online profession, and for producing leaders who understand the latest technology and the fundamental challenges that occur when schools and businesses go online. The yearlong programs are designed for working professionals who meet every other weekend and online for their studies.
