Personal Statement

Passionate about E-learning, I have successfully lead projects creating material for Moodle-based and bespoke Learning Management Systems. Most recently I have used Articulate, Adobe Captivate, and video content delivery technologies. I have a firm grounding in HTML5, CSS and javascript, and have also created content in legacy technologies such as such as Macromedia (Adobe) Flash and Director. I have also provided the voiceovers for a huge amount of online learning materials. I can provide examples of this work on request.

I have been working at one of the world’s largest Pilot Training Organisations for 18 years, managing, co-ordinating and creating learning materials for both the Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL) and Airline Transport Pilot’s Licence (ATPL) courses. These materials have been used world-wide to train generations of airline pilots. As regulations and aircraft technologies change, these materials have to be continually updated to comply with edicts from the world’s regulatory bodies. I have also had to adapt, refresh and continually update my skill set in order to stay current as delivery platforms have evolved over time.

I also have extensive experience in the design, production and organisation of print books, having project managed and lead the creation of a series of Private Pilot’s Licence textbooks (7 volumes), and ran a continuing update, revision and redesign program for a series of 14 Airline Transport Pilot’s Licence training manuals.

A team player and organiser, with a skilled and diplomatic approach to client liaison, I have extensive experience of working with subject experts and fellow content creators to create world-beating learning materials, for use on, and offline.
