MACOMB, IL - - Joshua Joseph was appointed instructional technology system manager in the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) at Western Illinois University, effective June 8, according to Susan Martinelli-Fernandez, CAS interim dean.

"Joshua's main responsibilities includes management of the CAS web presence, front-end development of websites for the CAS academic departments and assisting faculty with development of online and hybrid courses," Martinelli-Fernandez said. "His excellent background made him an ideal candidate for this position, and we are fortunate to have him join our college."

Joseph comes to WIU with extensive experience in web analysis, design and development, coding, documentation and implementation of client/server, Internet and Intranet data processing applications from previous business positions in North Carolina and New York.

"I have spent my time thus far studying the architecture of CAS websites and working with folks from web services," said Joseph. "The University is ready to undertake a major redesign of its web presence, and I am looking forward to working with Dean Martinelli-Fernandez and department chairpersons in the coming months to manage the resulting changes across all of our websites."

Joseph earned his Bachelor of Engineering degree at Bharathiar University (Coimbatore, India) and his Master of Computer Science degree at the New York Institute of Technology (Old Westbury, NY).
