My experience on the course

One of my roles was to develop the distance learning offerings from the School of Informatics. I joined in the MSc in e-Learning 2011-2012 to improve my knowledge of digital education and on-line teaching and assessment mechanisms.

What I'm doing now

Professor of Knowledge-Based Systems.  I created the AI planning MOOC which was delivered via Coursera to over 100,000 students from 2012 to 2015.
