Current Position and Past Experience
Jeffrey Pomerantz is an Information Scientist with more than 20 years of experience in studying and evaluating information services and educational technologies in a variety of contexts.

Pomerantz is a co-founder of Proximal LLC, a technology startup developing VR and immersive experiences for educational and cultural heritage organizations. Proximal was born out of research that Pomerantz conducted as the principal investigator for the Campus of the Future initiative, the broadest study to date on 3D and Extended Reality technologies in higher education, published by EDUCAUSE and sponsored by HP.

Pomerantz is an Associate Professor of Practice and the Online Program Coordinator at the School of Library and Information Science at Simmons University. Prior to that, he was a Senior Researcher with the EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research (ECAR), and before that, a tenured Associate Professor in the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for over a decade. He has taught fully-online and hybrid courses since 2001… before the first fully-online web-based degree program launched, and way before the term MOOC was invented.

Pomerantz earned his PhD from Syracuse University in Information Science, and a Master’s from Simmons University in Library and Information Science.

Personal Details and Community Involvement
Pomerantz is an Editor of the Open Access Directory, a compendium of facts about open access (OA) to science and scholarship, and a project of the Harvard Open Access Project.
