Hi Elena

I am delighted that you have been advancing the cause of WebPA. Having been 
involved in the development of the tool over many years in the past, I have 
rather withdrawn from such activities more recently and allowed others to 
take this forward. Being out of date with developments, and totally ignorant 
of the technical programming aspects, I do not feel well placed to take a 
leading part in your proposed workshop.

I recommend that you should write to the webPA forum  [log in to unmask] 
to tell the user group about your activities and ask for the help/person you 
need to actively participate.  The most knowledgeable person I know in this 
respect is Paul Newman – who is the man who actually wrote all the original 
code – he is a senior IT technician at Loughborough. He can also tell you 
how to link with Moodle etc. Another person who has loads of knowledge is 
Steven Vickers – who does not work at Loughborough. Note that neither of 
these people are academic users.

I would be pleased to write a few words in my capacity as the originator of 
the system if that would help – what sort of thing do you have in mind?

I hope you are well and prosperous.
