Creation of WebFronter Site

- a cost effective solution
- an attractive media rich environment
- providing simple home access for pupils and parents to the London MLE
‘Andrew was a very accommodating and professional. His knowledge of Education was evident in his questions and actions. He arrived at our school with an array of equipment and within several hours had captured our vision in words and pictures. We were very impressed with both his design skills and his technical expertise.’Simon Elledge, Deputy Headteacher.
“The iMovie session was presented in a very relaxed yet efficient manner. Andrew was punctual and attentive. He offered opportunities to try out the applications and offered scope for questions. He is an effective communicator and is very self assured; which helped with our confidence as users. The teacher group was very mixed ability but we all agreed that it had given us a sense that the equipment could be made to match our students’ needs. He also demonstrated a clear understanding of the teaching strategies and syllabus demands that allowed us to see these applications within the context of student responses. A worthwhile team building event. Thanks Andrew.”David Chandler, Head of Media, Film and Communication & Culture.
