E-Learning Development and Technical Authoring
High quality e-learning involves more than just dumping a set of lecture notes or Power Point slides into an off-the-shelf knowledge management package. Information must be professionally tailored to meet three critical criteria:

  • Academic integrity
  • Editorial clarity
  • Usability - from the end-users' perspective

Since 1998, I have specialised in transforming academic, technical and business information into e-learning content that is:

  • Concise. Because the learners' time is valuable.
  • User-friendly. Otherwise, what's the point?
  • And effective. To meet the learners' requirements.

ROME - Remote Operations Management Education
ROME is a unique Internet and CD-based distance learning programme which I developed at the University of Huddersfield for the Institute of Operations Management.

From 1998 to 2004, I led the project as Creative/Technical Writer and Project Manager.

My key accomplishments:

  • Conceived and developed the ROMEtex virtual factory, an e-learning environment which delivers the IOM's Certificate in Operations Management.
  • Managed academic and editorial contributions of university staff, PhD. and MSc. researchers, and commissioned industry consultants.
  • Developed partnerships with business and learners to pilot, validate, launch and disseminate ROME as a commercial e-learning product.
