Introducing Myself: Dr.Jules: Julie Halick

Greetings fellow edX’ers,

I am the Program Manager (& Sr. Designer) for USMx, which is the umbrella organization for the University System of Maryland: edX & online special projects. We offer MOOCs, Professional Certificates, MicroMasters, and SPOCs. To give you an idea of the different roles I may be responsible for: I project manage instructional design projects, handle QA reviews, design courses, and/or support escalated learning & edX issues for USMx for the following institutions:

  • Bowie State University
  • Coppin State University
  • Frostburg State University
  • Salisbury University
  • Towson University
  • University of Baltimore
  • University of Maryland, Baltimore
  • University of Maryland, Baltimore County
  • University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science
  • University of Maryland, College Park
  • University of Maryland Eastern Shore
  • University of Maryland Global Campus

With that said, I’m not a programmer, and although I took HTML and Java, it’s been years and I’ve been building a Think Tank to support me w/ code issues or provide ideas/solutions, etc.
I’m sure at one point we will invest in Open edX, in the meantime, many of the same issues/questions overlap with edX and edX Edge.

I’m always impressed with these forums and the knowledge and appreciate the community feel.



Jules, welcome! We’ll be very interested to hear about your Open edX use, when it begins :slight_smile: Until then, we can help with general Open edX use and application.
