Rick Bebout

Technology Specialist

I’ve worked in some capacity with the Reed College of Media since 1997. As Technology Specialist, my primary responsibilities are to build and maintain all of the program’s graduate courses and support our online students and instructors. WVU eCampus, our online learning platform, is an intuitive, user-friendly system. I am always available through email or phone to assist our students when they need assistance, so please do not hesitate to contact me.

I earned a Master of Science in Journalism (2000) and a Bachelor of Arts in English (1997), both from West Virginia University. As a secondary assignment, I also teach and was awarded the College's Golden Quill Award for Outstanding Teaching twice, in 2010 and 2013. Those mean a great deal to me because they were student-driven nominations.

Away from the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, cheering on the Mountaineers, fly fishing and bow hunting. My passion for the outdoors has taken me on amazing adventures in some great places including Colorado, Idaho and Alaska.
