About: Founder of Hedtek Ltd a software house that builds products and performs custom development and extension work for clients.

I am the lead designer of the Gradient Assessment System, the Hedtek PLE and various tools for libraries, including social and personalised search engines.

I work broadly in areas to do with learning support, assessment activity data, learning analytics, and computer science research. Hedtek itself is very much focused on building Web-based systems.

I have in the past worked as a lecturer, and as a computer architect, human-computer interaction designer and theorist (with an emphasis on Participatory Design).

I'm currently interested in assessment, feedback, metacognition, self-directed and lifelong learning, and in supporting and enhancing learning processes.
