Tom Murdock

Past Independent Advisor

Tom's advice during the formative phases of our business was instrumental as we explored partnerships, appropriate pedagogical theory and opportunities to extend the benefits of the Open Source Moodle project into developing countries. 

Tom was an accomplished product visionary, marketer and company founder.  His work moved organisations towards reflective habits, scaffolded knowledge, and offered resonant leadership with a lot of heart.

Tom was a co-founder of Moodlerooms, and subsequently Education Advisor for Moodle.

Tom passed away in late 2018 and we aim to celebrate his life with every new educational opportunity created.
