Daniel Jordan

Daniel joined RECIT-VT to provide some extra muscle to James Burn as the education landscape was transitioning to online (COVID-19). Daniel quickly jumped in to provide much needed support to home turf RSB in helping administer the Access RSB Moodle website. Daniel has many years of experience in IT, notably programming and databases, as well as providing support and training to many. His skills and experience will be most useful as he is the go-to person for post workshop or training sessions that teachers and pedagogical consultants have with James.
