Received a PhD in Communication and Education in December 2000 from the Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. The title is "Towards The Virtual Class: Key Management Issues In Tertiary Education". His thesis is that the effective and widespread use of online learning/networked education in an institute requires a new form of management for all aspects of its operations: networked educational management. The thesis further presents a set of heuristics for managing the implementation of digital learning/networked education in conventional tertiary education. In 2001 these heuristics have been incorporated into the "LASO (Leadership, Academic & Student Ownership and Readiness) Model for Technological Transformation in Tertiary Education".
