Aarron Walter is a full-time faculty member in the Interactive Media Design department at The Art Institute of Atlanta. The program in which he teaches has been using modern Web development best practices since 2002. Aarron has started a project named The Web Standards Documentary Project. Aarron is recording stories from his students, describing their experiences in industry and how they are introducing their employers to Web Standards. In some cases his former students have converted entire organizations to Web Standards.

In a recent email, Aarron states;

“Although the project is still in its infancy, some of the stories I have collected document significant changes at major organizations like the US Center for Disease Control, and Morehouse College. I hope to add more stories as I learn about them. I am adding stories of failed attempts at converting employers as well, so we might learn what is really preventing businesses from changing.”

You can listen to the student’s stories on Aarron’s site.
