Welcome to the website! This is the personal web page of Graham Robinson. I work at the University of Southampton doing media streaming, lecture capture and other fun and exciting things. You’ll find my twitter stream on the right hand side showing what I’ve been up to more recently.

I’m a graduate of the University of Lincoln where I received a first class degree in media technology. Since then I’ve been working at the University of Southampton in many posts, each more interesting than the last.

The first post was eLanguages, who made on-line language courses. After that I moved to the main Modern Languages department supporting their systems.

In 2007 all school IT support was centralised. This gave me the opportunity to look after more school media systems including all the Adobe Flash and Windows Media Streaming servers.

More recently I became a ‘Learning Resources Technician’ formalising some of my media work. This post is slowly merging into the ‘Managed Learning Environment’ team where I’m learning about the Perception exam system and Panopto lecture capture service.

During my working life I have gained experience in

  • Windows XP and Windows 7 support
  • Apple Mac support
  • Adobe Flash, Audition and Photoshop
  • Adobe Flash Media Server, including writing a PHP based authentication system
  • Windows Server 2003 and 2008 R2
  • Windows Media Streaming Server 2003 and 2008
  • IIS 6 and 7.5
