Oxmust is run by Pauline Woolley.
Pauline has a BA in English from Oxford University and worked for some years as a teacher of English, Communication and Film Studies. During that time, she became interested in the use of computers in producing learning materials and in being used for collaborative working. As a result of this, she signed up for the new MA in Electronic Media course at Oxford Brookes University in 1995. She completed the course in 1998, gaining distinctions on seven out of the eight modules she took.
Subsequent to that, Pauline built up a portfolio of web-sites for clients, including one for the Oxford Centre for Publishing Studies, a special site on Publishing in Africa for Oxford Brookes University Library, d'Overbroeck's College site and one for LTS Training, an EFL business centre in Bath.
She then worked as an Information Manager for ruralnet|uk for seven years, becoming involved in numerous projects on and off-line in rural regeneration. In the course of this, she ran training courses on topics ranging from basic web usage to using packages such as Dreamweaver and Photoshop. She also produced an online daily news digest - xPRESS, with other members of the ruralnet team. In addition she designed and managed over twenty websites for clients in the public, private and third sectors.
Pauline is a keen believer in the importance of online collaboration, and the possibilities of the internet for bringing people closer together, for making communication more efficient and for making business more productive.
