Lance Weiler:  "Developing an understanding of code is a valuable skill. In fact its now a 21st century storytelling reality. While it’s not critical for you to rush off and learn how to code, it wouldn’t hurt to become more familiar with the terminology, process and realities of producing digital / interactive projects."

"The daydream begins. It’s a familiar scene, one we have likely both experienced as students and struggled against in our students as teachers. But daydreaming is not what it might seem.

Behind the Scenes – Trail Stakes  Each year, the Iditarod Trail is lined with trail markers as a means of charting the route for mushers to follow during the race.  This video, from the 2006 Insider Archives, tells about how these stakes are made and used during the race.  

Behind the Scenes – Stu Nelson, Lead Vet  This video clip is from the 2006 Insider archives and introduces viewers to Chief Vet, Stu Nelson.  Viewers can learn general information about the goals of the vet team and what it takes to be one of the vets.  Stu works hard with his team of vets who rely on the mushers to be part of the ‘team’ that brings quality dog care to the race.
