How did you get into a career in elearning?

I became fascinated by the potential of elearning whilst doing my Masters in 1994 and moved into a training and development role with a company in Germany, and kept going from there.

Do you feel there are good opportunities for women working in elearning?

The opportunities for women working in elearning are excellent; it is a real equal opportunities industry.

How are you working to make elearning more effective?

I think it is important to remember that we are talking about learning first and technology second. The technology should only ever be a way of supporting individuals in their learning and development. Having said that, I’m excited by the opportunities that new technologies bring to how we learn, especially mobile ones. I think having the opportunity to learn wherever you are, and whenever you need it, could prove revolutionary.

If you could give eLN members one elearning tip, what would it be?

Always put the learner centre stage.
