Hi, I am Mark Revels. I am a technologist, researcher, and writer, teaching information technology and management courses for leading schools. I have over twenty years of practical, hands-on electronics, information technology, and management experience. My last professional engagement was at the director level with a billion-dollar multinational manufacturer, where I was responsible for application development and support of offshore inventory/logistics systems and all manufacturing applications. In this position I directed a staff of over twenty people and was responsible for the development of departmental standard operating procedures; coordination of group Y2K remediation efforts; management of an e-procurement/computerized maintenance management enterprise-wide project; and direction of multiple e-commerce initiatives including the EDI group and the Internet development team.
From a credentials perspective, I earned a Ph.D. in technology management with an emphasis in human resource development (industrial training) from Indiana State University. I also hold a master’s in systems management with an information systems concentration from the University of Denver, and a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a management major from the University of Kentucky. Additionally, I hold five industry certifications:
- Certified Computing Professional (Institute for the Certification of Computing Professionals)
- Certified Integrated Resource Manager (The Association for Operations Management)
- Certified Biomedical Equipment Technician (The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation)
- Certified Online-Course Peer Reviewer (Quality Matters)
- Technician Class Radio Operator (Federal Communications Commission)
I also sit on several journal review boards such as Informing Science and Information, Journal of Issues in Informing Science and Information Technology, and Information Technology Education.
My published dissertation research employed empirical research methods on undergraduate participants to explore the use of computer mediated communication (CMC) as a surrogate for face-to-face interaction with CBT trainees. In addition to the use of CMC with trainees, I am also interested in the use of emerging technologies with online learners, and the application of information technology in organizations.
