Your Instructor

Dr Richard Stibbard

Web developer and online educator

I have been working in web development
since 2006, building custom database-driven websites from scratch, as
well as customizing Moodle sites. Before that, I was a lecturer at the
University of Surrey, where I specialized in distance education through
the online learning platform WebCT Vista (later Blackboard).

I bring to my courses expertise not just in the technical aspects of web development, but also the educational side. My aim is to deliver courses of supreme clarity which are suitable for a range of learners, and which make learning a pleasure for all my students.
