Robert Chapman - Academic Technologist
My name is Robert Chapman. I spent the first part of my life in TN. I studied education and history at Tennessee Tech University. I thought I wanted to teach history or go to seminary but ended up getting into educational technology. I currently live and work in San Antonio, TX.
I work at Trinity University. I am the Director of the Center for Learning and Technology. I am responsible for the campus and classroom A/V, cable TV, LMS (Moodle), and academic technology on campus. I've had the opportunity to work with everything from videoconferencing to, lecture capture, learning managements systems, multimedia content creation/delivery/streaming, and much more. It's one of the things that makes my work really enjoyable. We are constantly getting to build and play with new things.
Most of my professional career has been spent working with universities on various technology projects. That being said I'm a sucker for anything that's got a tech spin to it and I really like projects that improve a person's condition. I'm also keenly interested in how technology and spiritual practice inform one another. So if you have a neat project and are interested in me taking a look or working with you let me know.
When I'm not working I'm usually taking photos, learning about new tech, reading, programming, tinkering with electronics, discussing theology and philosophy, or watching entirely too much Netflix.
