Haidee started HRD with Stuart in 2001, and without her influence and love of Moodle we would not be here. Haidee was the first MCCC in the world, and the first person in HRD to be rated as a PHM on Haidee is a constant inspiration to our organisation, and her influence and love is with us every day in the way we work and what we try to achieve.  The site is one of the ways we ensure Haidee's influence continues in this world, and makes it a better place.
