IT Project Opportunity; Convert University OHV Recreation Courses to an Online Application
Marshall University is currently seeking an individual to place the two remaining OHV Recreation courses online

In 2003 Marshall University, in cooperation with the Nick J. Rahall, II Appalachian Transportation Institute and the National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) with encouragement from the United States Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and Federal Highway Administration Recreational Trails Program began developing a series of courses in off-highway vehicle recreation management. The purpose of the curriculum was to provide both university students and professional employees of planning and land management agencies with the highest level of academic course work in the broad aspects of off-highway vehicle recreation in the United States, planning and construction of OHV trails and facilities, and operation and management of OHV trails and facilities.

Currently this one-of-a-kind OHV academic program approved by Marshall University consists of a series of four, three-semester-hour courses with the first two courses being offered online for the past two years.

"The NOHVCC and Marshall U. are anxious to see the project come to completion with the addition of the last two courses to online applications," says NOHVCC Executive director Russ Ehnes. "Marshall's Dr. Raymond Busbee has been the major force behind the project from day one, having developed the course contents and technical support for conversion of the series from classroom to an online curriculum. With Dr. Busbee's retirement, the task of getting the last two courses online remains and we would like to open up the offer of this unique opportunity first and foremost to our network of NOHVCC representatives and supporters."

The person chosen to do the job would be contracted by the University and compensated $4000 for each one of the two courses. The work can be done off-site, would have Raymond's first two online courses as models, the assistance of the University tech support staff, and advice from Raymond. The software used for the job would be a Web CT Vista program.

"We know there are a lot of IT-savvy folks within our organization who may enjoy working on a project such as this, especially when it concerns our favorite pastime," Ehnes continues. "And what a nice feather to put in your cap when it's all done!"

To find out more about the Marshall University OHV Recreation course curriculum take a look at the Marshall Page on the NOHVCC website. To inquire about this unique opportunity, call the NOHVCC at 800-348-6487 and ask for Russ Ehnes or e-mail
