He has maintained frequent presence at Hack/Doc events, participated in CLAMP steering committee meetings, and actively provides support, insight, and community discussion on the CLAMP Moodle Exchange forums. His attention to detail, eagerness to take on tasks, and communication skills have made an impact on CLAMP’s documentation and testing efforts. Jason is an instructional technologist at Kenyon College in Gambier, OH.
