My former employer in the UK recognized the importance of research that supported academic / curricula activities – academia is a business in its own right and with over 300 industrial design / product design type awards in the UK alone, we were keen to remain competitive.
Funded and personal research encompassed:
digital curriculum support – via Blackboard VLE
All classes were fully digitized and disseminate via Blackboard, which provided a uniform service delivery experience for students.
bespoke training video support for classes
I was one of the pioneers for generating bespoke video training systems, alongside my colleague Tony Smith. One of my videos won a 2007 BEA Award of Excellence in USA.
