Gavin Henrick has worked with technology in business, learning and development for over 10 years. Most recently Gavin worked with Moodle partners in Ireland and Canada/USA where he gained valuable experience in Moodle and related technology solutions and set up his own consultancy in 2011 – Learning Technology Services.

Through the new company, Gavin currently works on supporting organisations with e-learning projects including Open Badge implementations, Moodle rollouts, hosting and support tenders, and Moodle upgrade strategies and processes.

Gavin recently published the book “Moodle Add-ons” with Michael de Raadt, Development Manager at Moodle HQ. The book provides advice for evaluating add-ons and also helps you to identify some great add- ons that will enrich specific aspects of your platform.

Gavin co-authored the book “Moodle 2.0 for Business Beginner's Guide” with Jason Cole and Jeanne Cole. This was published by Packt Publishing in May 2011. Since then he has published a number of white papers on Moodle 2 Repositories and Moodle 2 Themes.
