with faculty online in
time. Dr. Alyson Gill, Art, is the administrator of the
environment. To date, the Dean B. Ellis library, the ASU Arch, and

virtual classes have been held in these locations. In September, the
virtual campus was expanded to include a Virtual Heritage area,
where 3D models of ancient monument and heritage sites are being
constructed by ASU students. For details about this new teaching
