Since running his first online course in 2010, Brian has has partnered with leading business colleges across Ireland to run online courses and trained thousands of clients around the world.
When teachers in schools and colleges ask me for help delivering blended courses (i.e. courses with an online element), I teach them Moodle - because Moodle is great for sharing resources and collecting assignments.
