About: I am employed as Programme Specialist, Learning Technologies, at the South African Institute for Distance Education (Saide) in Johannesburg. I am currently involved in a number of Educational Technology projects at Higher Education Institutions in sub-Saharan Africa, including the Partnership for Higher Education in Africa (PHEA) Educational Technology Initiative (ETI), and the AgShare OER project funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
I am also a Research Associate at the Department of Information Systems, Rhodes University (RU), South Africa, having previously lectured in this Department from 1999 to 2007. Prior to this, I ran the Computer Based Education Unit (CBEU) at RU from 1994 to 1998. While at RU, I established and led a research group in Advanced Learning Technologies (ALT), as well as implemented a post-graduate coursework module in ALT for Information Systems and Computer Science students, both at Rhodes University and the University of Fort Hare.
