About Me

Julian Ridden's profile picture
Educator, Leader, Keynote Speaker, Influencer and Lifelong Learner.

I am a passionate advocate of quality education, ongoing innovation and open education, open standards, open source and open communities. With a strong and proven background in the delivery of education as a teacher as well as instructional design, IT Directorship, code development, project management and implementation. This background ensures I am well placed to provide advice and skills across the entire spectrum of eLearning development.

I am a professional public speaker, attending conferences globally to deliver Keynotes and workshops on new and emerging eLearning trends and technologies as well as the importance of engagement in the process.

I have worked in the education space for over a decade, specialising in delivery of education for both blended and pure online learning. There is no difference in the methodology of offline and online education. Just the tools change. I am a strong believer that we should always put pedagogy/adragogy first and then ensure we find the tools to best support it.

I work in an industry I love, where I get to educate, create and innovate. I am a strong believer in community and the importance of life long learning.
