Holler is designed to establish an open conversation of technology and learning in the Central Appalachian region, as well as a delivery tool for open coursework and learning initiatives. The site is split into two sections; a social network designed for sharing creative and educational endeavors, and self-paced, regional online courses. The site will not only leverage emerging technologies to achieve its mission, but will also inspire others to do the same. Using technology in this way shows that the people of Central Appalachia can utilize the same tools as those around the world and put it to use for our own purposes and betterment of our own communities. We can shape technology to our own needs, and we will begin by using that technology to increase visual, programming, and storytelling skills.
