that the heart of the revival was social control. Though Moody relied on standard language about godly woman- hood to bring the city to Christ, he was seeking to em- power them only to a point. The real goal of the revival, says Joyner, was to target white, middle-class men for conversion.

1918, the baseball player turned evangelist Billy Sunday also attempted to reach the city's men by rallying them around the prohibition cause. In both cases, revivalists were willing to uplift women as the true allies of religion and mo- rality, but were clear that the ultimate responsibility fell to white, middle-class men.”

Two other episodes demon- strate the same dynamic. The "Simultaneous Campaign" conducted by the professional revivalist Wilbur Chapman in 1910 enlisted local investiga- tors of the Vice Commission to promote his masculine mes- sage of civic renewal. In

“The narrative begins with an ac- count of the world's fair campaign in 1893. Unhappy with the plural- istic message of the Parliament of Religions and the organizers’ deci- sion to open on Sundays, conserva- tive Protestants employed the so- cially charged message of the so- cial purity movement to mount a much broader campaign against the city's moral woes.

upon each item, assess it, and examine its relationship to the other pieces and to their learning goals. Coupled with an inde- pendent learning plan that identifies not only the end goal, but also intermediate goals, the assembling of materials in a portfo- lio provides a student with a clear sense of movement toward his or her educational goal.

Furthermore, this pilot with ePortfolio will enable us to explore the software’s value as a means of collecting the appropriate data for the analysis of program and institutional level student learning outcomes. One of the difficulties in obtaining assess- ment information in a college such as ours is that community college students do not come through together as a cohort. Stu- dents work on their own individual timelines, making it difficult to get students together in a group to test the outcomes. Having a student create a portfolio over time gives us the opportunity to measure some of the important program level outcomes.

The development of a portfolio is also a crucial step in helping students prepare for employment opportunities in the 21st- century. This instruction will help our students prepare a living, ever-changing portfolio which will give an up-to-date represen- tation of their work customized to employment or academic needs at a given point in their professional development.

Lora Lane will teach one online section CO INFO 1, which is required for all business majors (and many other majors). Josh Abarbanel will teach a section of Art 640 (Portfolio Develop- ment), a key element in the digital media arts program. Ann Warren will teach an online section of English 270 American literature. Finally, Anna Ryan will use the ePortfolio in two sections of English 101 in the Teacher Prep Pathway. Future participation in the program is not limited to any particu- lar discipline. You don’t have to be particularly computer- savvy either. For more information or to find out how you can become part of the next phase, please contact Lora lane (lanelm@lahc.edu) or Dave Humphreys (humphrd@lahc.ecu).
