I am a Learning Technologist in LLS, joining the team in March 2013. I have a background in data conversion, visualisation and analysis at both Oxford University Press and the Northamptonshire Drug and Alcohol Action team and am a former military intelligence analyst.
In addition to exploring the use of NILE analytics data and visualisation tools, I am also at the early stages of research based on the continuous collection of user satisfaction data from within a VLE/MOOC.
