My first teaching experience was in the 1980s, while I was a student at university. Then in the 1990s, I began volunteer teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) to migrants while I was studying law. I moved into website design in 1996 and worked in website design and online marketing until 2013. During this time, I also taught ESL to internationals on the Gold Coast of Australia and I began my experience with developing online learning in 2003.

I had taken online (and more traditional distance courses) as a student, but in 2003 I found the Learning Management System (LMS) Moodle, and I installed the LMS on my corporate server. I then discussed with my partner offering online courses in Internet marketing. I created a course prototype and trained subject matter experts in using the LMS to deliver training in their areas of expertise.

After almost a decade as Instructional Designer, LMS Administrator and e-learning developer, I took a government job in 2013 in Wellington developing online training resources.

My expertise and interest is broad, from design to development to evaluation (and feeding back into design). I am constantly looking for ways to improve my skill sets and experience and I am especially interested in possible application of emerging technologies in e-learning. My current focus is on the application of machine learning in the development and delivery of online training resources.

This site is being created as a resource where I can share my interests in Instructional Design, e-learning development, Project Management and a number of other areas.
