“I have had the pleasure of knowing Mark for fourteen years. Mark is smart, versatile, always fun to be with, and has an uncanny knack of never taking his eye off the ball. When I was a headmaster of a school, he helped me and my school through several architectural and technological challenges.Mark is a natural educator. A very creative thinker, Mark has original ideas on learning strategies, specifically on eLearning and classroom technology, and has been a leader in developing engaging, high-quality on-line learning programs. He is a very practical visionary when it comes to technology and education, and has a sixth sense for other people’s needs. His passionate optimism makes him a great problem solver. Everything is an opportunity for Mark. He knows when to lead and when to follow, he knows how to make conflict creative and can get people to work together thus bringing out the best in them. In the many long conversations we have had over the last 14 years I have been struck by his clarity of thinking about proper use of educational technology and online learning. Mark’s brilliance is revealed in his sense of humor, imagination and creative thinking, which others always find inspiring.
