I'm Rob Ashton.
I graduated last year from the University of Reading and I'm currently working for a design automation company in the north of England.
While I have left university officially, I never really left in spirit, still staying involved in a number of university projects.
That's me after skiiing in Austria last year. I'm the smarty-man in Second Life - I don't think he needs another picture.
I'm really interested in the use of virtual worlds to assist in the learning process, and while Second Life may not be the most appropriate place for this, it seems to serve as a useful testing ground for researching the potential pitfalls and benefits of this kind of teaching.
I guess that explains why I'm here - I hope to be of some help during this project :)
