Story
Introduction
I’m Robert Arena. Currently I am Executive Director of Curriculum Product Development at Connections Education, a Pearson Company. Company's work supports students and parents with an accredited online and blended public school environment for students in grades K-12 across 25 states. Responsible for company's 100+ courseware, training, and multimedia development teams. Teams develop and deploy online K-12 courses, HTML-based curriculum tools and learning presentations, design and implementation of corporate and student/parent multimedia training, as well as full studio supporting audio recording and video production needs. Our work has won awards from USDLA as well as an Eddie.

ProjectCONNECT is a director level initiative to establish a company-wide PMI standards-based project management philosophy, technology platform and workflow.
