Kenny Beyer
Learning Technologies Specialist

About Kenny:Kenny is the system administrator of the Blackboard and Desire2Learn learning management systems. Kenny serves on the implementation team helping the university transition from Blackboard to Desire2Learn. In Fall 2013, Desire2Learn will become the only learning management system for the university. Kenny assists faculty with the learning management system support needs, helps faculty create their portfolios, and administer the online course evaluations.

Kenny has worked for two other higher education institutions in the past seven years as their learning management system administrator. At both of these institutions he was influential in starting the LMS from its infant stages to which it is eventually being used by the majority of the faculty.

Kenny received his Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Briar Cliff University in Sioux City, Iowa. He currently is working on his master's degree in Technology for Education and Training, in hopes of completing it in summer 2014.
