Research overview Joining the OU in the Spring of 1992, my initial projects were related to the transcription of course media for print-disabled students. I was a founder member of KMi when it was launched in 1995. I am now a web applications developer using PHP and mySQL, writing custom code or extensions for open source CMS like Drupal or Wordpress. I am particularly interested in the application of mobile technology to teaching and learning in remote locations. My most recent projects have included a photo and audio blog for L204, a second level Spanish language course which made custom use of Google Maps for location data http://cnm.open.ac.uk/projects/santiago. I was also part of the team for ERA - the use of wireless networking technology to make geology field trips accessible to disabled and/or remote students. I built the website that hosts the Open University's immensely popular podcast service http://podcast.open.ac.uk and continue to maintain the OU's webcast hosting system STADIUM. I have been involved in four EU-funded projects related to language teaching and inter-cultural competence. Outreach projects include collaboration with the Halle Orchestra and the Field Studies Council. I worked on Making The News (a web-based news system being used in schools nation-wide http://mtn.e2bn.net), ROSTRA, CLUTCH, CABER, VDC, MK Schools OnLine and the citischool project (teaching for kids who dropped out of mainstream education in the Milton Keynes area). I have also created web applications for the OU's Research School including PhDSkills http://phdskills.open.ac.uk (to track the progress of all PhD students at the OU) and the Research Diary http://research-diary.open.ac.uk. I both judge and run the online part of the annual research students' poster competition where new PhD students show off their projects. In 2008 I was a recipient of two OU Teaching Awards, for my role in T189 'Digital photography: creating and sharing better images' http://www3.open.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/course/t189.htm and as part of the ERA team. I received a third Teaching Award in 2014 for my part in webcasting the Student Connections conference. From June 2016 I have joined KMi's blockchain development team where we are looking at the areas of micro-accreditation, badges, educational currency and academic reputation currency.
