Meet the Team! Marc Merrill

Bitmoji introduction to Marc Merrill
What do you do at iLearnNH?

I provide technical guidance and general support for our suite of iLearnNH software tools (Canvas/Kaltura/Zoom).

Describe a favorite moment working with the iLearnNH team.

I haven’t worked for iLearnNH for very long, but so far the best moments have been collaborating with a very talented team. It's really satisfying to see how this work helps our partner schools best use this technology to enhance their learning environments.  

If you could design your perfect Saturday, what would it look like?

Sleep in a touch later than normal. Feed my pets, followed by coffee on the deck and a late breakfast. I then plan an activity for the day (usually spontaneous so you never know, but preferably a sport or something outdoors). The evening is all about relaxing, ideally hanging out with good friends, family, cooking a nice meal while listening to music, then settling in with either great conversation or a movie. 

If you could spend three months learning something new, what would you choose?

Probably something like how to sail a boat or fly an airplane.

It’s 2025. What is one way education is different for teachers or students?

There is not even a question that students need to use and understand computer technology in some way. This is critical to the success of teaching and learning both now and into the future.  

Most importantly... any pets? 
Two cats! Grizz is a female Siamese kitten. The breed is called Konja and is from Thailand, and they're supposed to bring good luck. Cupes is a cuddly male orphan kitten from St. Croix. He's a European short-haired Tabby.
