On-line Resources:
  • Developed a number of academic and informational websites at Morrisville State College starting from 2000 and maintained most of these sites until 2011 when a number a new websites were devised by the College Webmaster. These included academic websites for the School of Agriculture and Natural Resources (2001), Department of Environmental Sciences (2003); Department of Agricultural Engineering Technology (2000); Department of Agricultural Science, Business, and Dairy (2000); and College Committee on General Education Assessment (2001). Other websites included one for the "Agricultural and Food Ventures Conference 2001" held on campus in April, 2001; a technical website on the plug-flow, hard-top anaerobic digester located at the Dairy Complex (first developed in 2007 and then updated by the College Webmaster in 2008 to include all renewable energy projects developed on campus).

  • Developed (in 2000) and continue to maintain a professional website available at the following address: people.morrisville.edu/~shayyaw/index.htm. This website provides access to the web pages of the college courses I taught to date at MSC along with links with controlled access (intended for students registered in the offered courses) to course material available under WebCT and, more recently, Blackboard; a summary of academic and professional experiences; and a webpage (people.morrisville.edu/~shayyaw/html/MSCWeather.htm) to access real-time weather data from the two automated weather stations located on campus (one installed at the Dairy Complex in 2003 and another installed at the Academic Quad in 2011), including hourly, daily, monthly, and annual tabular and graphical summary weather reports.
