Ben HawkridgeProject Officer
I am primarily a software developer supporting academics with their research and internal or external projects particularly in applied Educational Technology.
In more recent times I have worked with Trevor Collins on the Stadium Live project which is been actively used to deliver Labcasts and Fieldcasts to OU students, the latter been of particular interest to Trevor Collins research.
I have long focused on digital audio-visual media, covering both on demand (podcasting) content and delivery of live events using live streaming or video conference technologies. In more recent times the rapid uptake of video conference technologies has led to a lot of experimentation with hybrid solutions.
