  • Students only need to understand how to access various online accounts.
Most people plan for what's going to happen to their physical things when they die, but few people think about what happens to all of their digital content. This not only includes the files that reside on their computer, but also what exists in the cloud and on social media sites. All of their photos, comments, likes, music, etc. You may or may not want family and friends to have continued access to it, but because of privacy policies, unless you have made arrangements before your passing, any access that you might want them to have may be denied. This course will identify several aspects that you need to consider and plan for in order to prepare your "digital afterlife."
Who is the target audience?
  • This course is meant for anyone who has shared content on social media and/or pays bills and accesses bank accounts online, or who plan to do so in the near future.

Leaving your digital legacy

The internet changes very rapidly. It is very possibly that by the time you're taking this class, privacy policies may have changed, or new laws may have been enacted. When in doubt, please seek proper legal advice. There are lawyers who specifically understand and focus on the digital domain. They may be able to accomplish things that your trusted family and friends cannot.

Educator • Church Musician • Music Technologist • Composer

I am a Scranton native and have been an elementary music teacher in the ScrantonSchool District since 2002. In addition to teaching music to students in grades Pre-K to 5thgrade, I also direct and create programming material for the TV studio at George Bancroft and produce the first and only podcast in the district. I have published articles about my work in the Scranton School District newsletter, which is distributed by the Scranton Times quarterly.

I started at St. Catherine's as an organist for the weekend masses in 1991. Since that time, I became the accompanist for the Youth Choir, the Adult Choir, choir director, and as of July 2009, director of music. I have debuted many original musical works at our church, including settings for "Ave Maria" and "For the Beauty of the Earth," several instrumental pieces performed during the Christmas and Easter seasons, and parts of my mass, "Missa Benedicta," named for Sr. Benedicta Berendes IHM, my music history teacher at Marywood.

I graduated from Marywood University in 1999 with a BM in Music Education and was awarded The Sister M. Clare Kelley Medal for Excellence in Music. In 2007, I received my MA, also in Music Education from Marywood. In addition, I have studied music technology courses during the summers at Villanova University and online through the University of Colorado and have completed my TI:ME (Technology Institute for Music Educators) certification. My TI:ME instructors have included Dr. Tom Rudolph, Dr. Floyd Richmond, Dr. John Kuzmich, Ken Peters, and Mike Fein. I have taught various music and technology classes at Marywood University's Vivace Music Institute (formerly known as the Summer Music Camp) since 1995.

I have performed in the pit orchestra of Marywood's major theatre productions, "Pippin," "A Chorus Line," "Guys & Dolls," and "Will Rogers Follies," and in the senior workshop production of "The Fantastics." I have also worked "behind the scenes," assisting with props, lighting, and sound for several music department productions. Several of my original pieces have been performed by the Marywood Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band, Percussion Ensemble, and at the Vivace Music Institute. I have also performed in several musicals and cabarets with the former "Diva Theater" and continue to work as an independent musician for weddings and wedding receptions. I have been teaching private music lessons since 1997.

I play the piano, organ, violin, and percussion, and have studied privately with Bob Manento, Sr. Immaculate Severino IHM, Steve Mathiesen, Mark Laubach, and Sophie Till.
