Learning Management Systems
In 2014 I was hired as an eLearning Specialist by Te Rito Maioha Early Childhood New Zealand (formerly Te Tari Puna Ora o Aotearoa New Zealand Childcare Association) to review their approach and delivery of blended learning. This included reviewing their existing e-learning platform and resources; how the various programmes were delivered at their 11 locations around the country and online. From this I developed a report detailing my findings and recommendations for approximately 18 months of development and beyond. The recommendations were accepted by the Senior Executive Group and I was tasked to implement the recommendations.
In 2005 I wrote an article for the Journal Of Distance Learning entitled Learning Management Systems and the Realities of Using Open Source Software*. I wasn't very happy with the fact that the article was published with edits that hadn't been discussed with me, such as paragraphs being moved and words changed (such as "software's lifecycle" being changed to "software's lifestyle"...yikes!).
