Research Support

I develop blogs and websites for research projects using local installs of WordPress. Each site is tailored to the specific requirements of a project via the use of plugins and customised themes. Additional functionality is provided by extending plugins or creating other bespoke solutions.

I also develop websites for managing and displaying digital collections in Omeka. I use CSS and template modifications to give each site its own identity, and create custom mapping solutions by extending the built-in geolocation tools using the Google Maps API.

Teaching Support

I support various technologies used in teaching including the University's installation of Moodle, online assignment submission and marking via Turnitin and audience response clickers using TurningPoint software.
