Glenn was a founding member of the Centre for Educational Multimedia (now Learning with New Media Research Group) and has made valuable contributions to national and international knowledge in the area of ICT in Education. Glenn passed away peacefully on Aug 31, 2009. He had been battling illness for quite a number of years but he was always positive, and maintained his sense of humour and commitment to his students and his scholarship.
Dr Glenn Russell taught in country and suburban schools in Victoria for nearly twenty years before becoming foundation lecturer in Computer Education at Griffith University, where he developed undergraduate and graduate courses. He joined the Faculty of Education at Monash University in 1999. He had an international reputation in virtual schooling, cyberspace, and educational uses of hypertext. In later years his research also included ethical uses of information and communications technology in school education, educational futures in globalised environments, and responsibilities in online schools.
