Phil Cowcill has been working with educational technology since 1983. He started developing websites in 1994. In 1995, he started teaching full-time multimedia and web development at the post-graduate level. In 2011, Mr. Cowcill designed and delivered Canada's first Mobile Application Development program for a college. This program was also at the post graduate level.
He's very passionate about helping people learn. Most of his students over the years come with out having a programming background. He has found a way to explain difficult concepts to non technical people. This has provided people without a programming background to now successfully build web sites, interactive learning, games and native mobile applications for both Android and iOS.
Now that Mr. Cowcill has retired from full-time teaching, he's looking to share his experience and knowledge with a much larger "class". Mr. Cowcill is first and foremost an educator and is here to help upgrade your skill by helping you learn.
