Welcome to the web profile of Dr. Edd Schneider, Associate Professor in the department of Communication Media & Design in the Park School of Communications at Ithaca College. I am also an affiliated faculty member with the department of Emerging Media as well as the Animation minor. I am also run the Innovation Lab, the Park School's place for experimental new media. My professional background is in the field of Instructional Technology, my PhD is in Instructional Systems Technology with a double minor in Telecommunications and Library & Information Science. Many people do not know the end of the famous phrase "Jack of all trades master of none is oftentimes better than a master of one". I purposefully set out to be a technology generalist, I publish research on comic books and video games, I work hard to make sure I have an industry-standard skillset in motion graphics, and within the Park School I am known as the VR guy and the 3d-printing guy.
Technology has changed drastically just in my academic career, I finished my undergraduate degree without an email account, I joined the faculty of Ithaca College from a department that heavily emphasized online learning. In the Park School I teach courses on media design, such as STCM11100: Presentation & Graphic Design, STCM22000: Interactive Media, and STCM 212000: Experience design.
