About: I moved to Greenwich last year, having previously been Head of the School of Computing & CreativeTechnologies at University of Abertay. I have a long history of involvement with learning technologies and elearning, having worked with ICBL at Heriot-Watt throughout the 90s, and been involved in the Scholar project. I now have a strategic development brief at Greenwich, head up a couple of departments, and lead the eCentre research centre with my colleagues Liz Bacon and Simon Walker.
