Meet John Trimble at the Justice Institute of BC

Submitted by Krista Lambert at the Justice Institute of BC
JohnTrimbleTell us a bit about where you work and what you do.
I work at the Justice Institute of BC (JIBC) in Tech Services as Blackboard Administrator. I am the tech guy for Blackboard and am responsible for server administration.
How long been involved in teaching and Learning and ed technology?
I’ve been at JIBC for almost 20 years and have been in this particular role for 12 years.
What’s one thing you really love about the work you do?
I really enjoy working with the people, whether it’s the multimedia developers, instructors, program administrators or students. I also love the challenge of learning new things. There are opportunities to learn more and take on new technologies and I’d say that always keeps me on my toes.
How long have you been a member of ETUG?
Since the Fall 2013 workshop – I’m a newbie!
What did you like best about your first ETUG event?
I really liked the different perspectives and especially enjoyed the UBC presentation on agile development. And I really enjoyed visiting another school’s campus. It’s a good opportunity to get out and see what other institutes are doing.
What would you like ETUG to provide more of in terms of benefits/value to members? Any input or help you want to ask members to provide?
I think it could be valuable to have something like an “old-school” listserv to facilitate the exchange of ideas and to help problem solve. It would provide for a great networking opportunity.
Do you have any special interests/hobbies?
I enjoy long walks on the beach, a good sense of humour and sunsets. Just kidding. I enjoy supporting my sons in baseball and BBQing.
