Naomi Rene Trujillo: I took this class as part of the Strategic Management of Digital Assets and Services certificate. I come to these classes as part of my work as a project manager and graphic designer in the field communications in higher ed. In general, my role is that of a creative operations manager. Some of my responsibilities include managing the workflow of comms projects from start to finish and facilitating the production and management of the resources, assets, and branding elements that are collected and used in these projects. This includes our digital assets management system. I’ve learned so much from the classes I’ve taken and have been able to utilize much of what I’ve learned here at work.
