Introduction

David posing at Stars in Your Eyes charity eventStaffordshire Media is a company established by David King at the start of the century.

David worked at Dudley College from 1978 until May 2006, when he left during a round of cutbacks at the college. Starting as a lecturer in Liberal Studies (read Tom Sharpe's Wilt to read how horrendous that can be), he took over the Communications courses at the college.

Owning one of the first 500 BBC Microcomputers was enough to get him involved in training teachers to use computers. He also worked with the Learning Support staff to develop the use of I.T. with students with learning and physical disabilities.

In the mid-Eighties he took on the teacher training courses at the college, working with Wolverhampton University to develop a new Certificate in Education. An early introduction to the Internet resulted in a move out of full-time teaching to develop a college Intranet and five external web sites. At its peak, the college's three-man web team won many awards and nominations for web site and multimedia work, and gained considerable expertise in accessibility and usability.

David is also a writer and broadcaster, and has provided voice-overs ontraining CD-ROMs for National Extension College Literacy and Numeracy materials. He is a regular contributor to Wolverhampton Community Radio, presenting the Friday Mid-Morning Show which focuses on Food, Drink and Healthy Eating. He has been working full-time for the British Dietetic Association since March 2007 looking after their web sites.

Helping You Now

We can now help you with your own web sites, CD-ROMs and publications. This may be a brief check of your web site to check its accessibility and ease of use, to a full blown audit and fix. If you're not sure what all the fuss is about Accessibility, this web site has an introduction to accessibility which explains the issue simply and gives examples of how blind people use computers.
