Roger_MarceloPlease join me in welcoming Roger Marcelo to the position of Multimedia Services Coordinator in Media Services. Roger will coordinate the work of Media Services, supporting the use of multimedia for instruction within the classroom, supporting media for meetings and events for Skyline College staff and community guests, and assisting with technology purchasing for the campus.

Roger comes to Skyline College from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco where he served as the Lead Music Technician supporting classrooms, recording studios and music production labs for students, faculty and staff. Roger is a College of San Mateo alum, graduating with an Associate of Arts degree in Electronic Music. Roger went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Music Technology from the California Institute of the Arts.

Roger is excited to join the Skyline College Academic Support & Learning Technologies team and looks forward to working with everyone on campus.

I would like to thank Ricardo Flores, Instructional Technologist with the CTTL for his work in providing leadership and direction for Media Services during this time of transition. With Roger’s arrival, Ricardo will be able to devote all of his time to supporting faculty with the integration of technology into teaching using WebAccess and other tools and in helping faculty design and build successful and engaging online learning experiences.
