My Name is Queenie Chow, and I work for the Office of Distance Education & eLearning at The Ohio State University. I’ve set up this blog to share useful information with the OSU community based on my own perspective and experience here. My articles are guided by my work, things I’m excited about, and answers to questions I get asked frequently. Here are the major topics I write about…


I mange the Digital Union, a collection of recording studios and computer labs on main campus. Students, staff, and faculty come to get friendly 1 on 1 assistance with digital content creation such as making videos, building websites, designing posters, working with spreadsheets, formatting dissertations, recording podcasts, and more! In addition to managing the Digital Union, I’ve taught workshops related to multimedia production, OSU Digital Storytelling, Digital video and image editing, creating websites in U.osu (WordPress), iPad Productivity, and Digital Presentation Techniques. I love helping people find new tools or ways to efficiently make their digital content.


The Digital Union is under the Office of Distance Education & eLearning, so my full time colleagues are among those responsible for the university’s implementation of initiatives and tools including Carmen, Secured Media Library, iTunesU, Digital Textbooks, Digital Scholarship, online course design, Digital Flagship, U.osu, and much more! After helping people at the Digital Union and referring people to others for over a decade, I’ve got a pretty good sense of either how to do it, how to find out, or who to ask.


In addition to managing a couple dozen Digital Union staff responsible for helping you navigate the waters of digital content creation, I’m an avid fanatic of programs and literature relating to personal, professional, and leadership development. I’ve been through a handful of programs like the Staff Leadership Series, MAPS, and Senn Delaney; I also continually keep up with blogs and new literature on leadership, creativity, psychology, and productivity. Talk to me if you want some recommendations!


It’s so important to take care of ourselves so we can live life and get things done, but also to thrive in all the ways that one can be well: physically, emotionally, socially, financially, spiritually, intellectually, etc. I’m always looking for ways to optimize my wellness in a way that integrates into my lifestyle, and love sharing some of those tips with the OSU community as a blogger and in a more official capacity as a Buckeye Wellness Innovator.
