As a graduate student, Leslie’s dissertation became the wedge to push ETD implementation at the University of Texas at Austin. Although her own dissertation was submitted on CD, her post-graduate efforts towards ETD implementation culminated in the adoption of an ETD program at UT within several years of her graduation. The Metanomics Blog site featured an article “Connecting the Dots”, which links to a Second Life Lecture – “Total Engagement – Gaming the Workplace” – includes a Tribute to the life of Leslie Jarmon. Leslie passed away in October 2009, leaving an indelible legacy for the world.
