Richard Wallace is passionate about the
community, environment and education.
Having been raised in the Adelaide hills on 5 acres his love of
gardening was inspired by his grand fathers "Beautiful haven" in
Crafers that always bought much pleasure and produce to the family. During his time at Adelaide University,
studying Psychology (BA) Richard ran his own gardening business which then
continued for another 10 years.
After years of travelling and working as a
Seismologist for the British government in Scotland, Richard returned to
Australia to complete an IT Adv Dip in computing. After setting up the Student Association at
TAFE with some of his fellow students, Richard saw an opportunity to use the
"World Wide Wed" to spread the word of students as well as help in
the way they learned. Richard was
employed by TAFE to setup a state wide learning portal which was subsequently
used by students, teachers and counsellors.
Richard lectured at TAFE part time for 5
years while also delving into online learning, from where he became a
specialist in the delivery and development of online content "with an
educators background, not a programmers background", founding Wallace Web
Design and Development(WWDaD) in 2003.
WWDaD now has many large organisations as clients such as the ABC,
Bridgestone, Sa Health and others who benefit from his professional development
and support of clean, concise and meaningful online education, known to
specialise in content for "low Literacy and ESL learners", using
visually appealing and fun learning materials.
Richard is involved in many community
organisations, such as the local school council, CFS, sporting clubs, Sight For
All and the Uraidla Sustainability Fair which he founder 10 years ago, which
promotes and using local produce (growing it yourself), low energy usage, low
water usage and generally promoting the benefits of the environment to all.

Moodle Sub-courses are a powerful way of pulling in results from
different courses into other courses, or one main "mother course" that
can be used to easily show where students are up to and what their
current grades are in a number of different courses.
An example of how this is used will be explained as well as a quick "how to" on setting this up in your own moodle instance.
