The College of Education at Northern Arizona University began a program to make available to Navajo, Hopi and other rural Native Americans an alternative site-based teacher certification program. This introduced some unique issues and challenges for teaching the required technology course. Digital video support was developed for the course and placed on CD-ROMs. The course content was then placed in WebCT and programmed so that clicking a link accessed the correct file on the CD, this way students access the correct digital video information at the proper time. The Educational Technology faculty did not feel that placing the course in WebCT and providing the digital video support was sufficient to assure the success of these entry level students. Individuals from the local sites were recruited to serve as paid mentors for the students. This paper reports on a two-semester pilot of this course.
