I am Mark from Dublin, Ireland.
I work for an e-learning company which specialises in open source software solutions to e-learning needs. I am really interested in starting to make good educational software and I think that the only way to do that is to know the learner. The question is why not ask them what they want/need - sometimes what is pedagogically best for the learner is not what they want - so we need to figure it out. Maybe I should save this for a blog post...
Anyway - I am into this since completing my PhD in the area which looked at using Model Driven Software Engineering methods and technologies to validate e-learning courses.
Looking forward to learning from you all!
