Hi! I'm Kevin Burden from Bristol, England. I'm a self-employed media development consultant. I work with people within the media, helping them to develop their craft (writing, editing, production, ethics, editorial decision-making) and management skills; and with academics, non-profit organisations and government bodies to help them work more effectively with the media. The greatest part of my work has been in countries undergoing rapid transition, including eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, south Asia, China and Africa.
For several years I worked at the BBC, where I co-founded an online learning platform and content that was used to train journalists and other media professionals in 20 or more ocuntries worldwide. I now have my own learning management system, but in all honesty I think the advantages of creative commons and open source platforms are so great, especially in the developing world, that I'd like to learn how to take part myself.
I'm looking forward to learning from all of you.
Feedback & Notes from my WikiNeighbours
- Great to see you in the tutorial, Kevin, and to see your user page. Do you have any concerns about the quality of educational resources developed using an open authoring approach? If so, what are your concerns? If not, how does an open authoring approach contribute to high quality learning materials. --Phil Bartle 08:19, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

(: Hi Burden! It's great to hear about you and your interests. I hope you can advise me on more efficient use of media out of your rich experience. I'd appreciate your feedback on my page for starters. --Hanaakhs 11:26, 15 May 2009 (UTC))
