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)
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.
