The essence of Roger Kenner's career has always been interpreting technology for novices, thus enabling and empowering them to do things for themselves. In the early 1980s, he developed mechanisms allowing teachers to place their training materials onto computers without having to learn any computer programming. Called upon to work with developers of interactive videodisk, he designed for them an 'authoring' tool whereby they could write the script in their terms, without reference to computer codes. He taught for many years English-as-a-second-language, introduction to computers and computer programming. His background in language teaching rather than technology provided a humanistic approach well-suited to beginners at computers. He went on to teach teachers in a teacher-training programme how best to integrate computers into their teaching.
Of late, Roger Kenner has been helping teachers and non-teachers alike with modern tools and tasks such as Powerpoint, web-page creation and maintenence, extracting and manipulating data with Excel and Word, as well as on-line training environments such as WebCT and Moodle.
