Job description: About Online, Professional & Executive Education

King’s Online is rapidly expanding as King’s recognises the growing demand for flexible online education in an increasingly digital world. Our team works with world-class academics in King’s faculties to design and develop online and blended courses. Our remit is backed by a College-wide commitment to expand in this innovative area of higher education. The King’s Strategic Vision 2029 pledges an aspiration to become the UK leader in online and blended learning by 2029.

In 2018 King’s Online aligned with King’s Professional and Executive Education (KPED) to form Online, Professional and Executive Education (OPEE). The two teams work closely together, sharing joint expertise and experience in designing and delivering solutions for faculties at King’s. OPEE holds expertise in a variety of areas including business development, instructional design, user experience, content/platform design and development and media design and production.

King’s Online team members bring their creativity and passion to education and work together to create online and blended courses and enable our students to have a world-leading student experience.

This role will join the Instructional Technology team, and will collaborate with the other teams across OPEE, particularly the UX team.

About the role

The Instructional Technology team works primarily on our , a modular design for online programmes and courses in Moodle. The system builds on the existing bootstrap-based theme that is ingrained in the platform, and is composed of styles, components and templates. Content editors use these components and templates to build online courses and course content.

Working in collaboration with other team members, you will develop our modular design system according to UX hand-off and accessibility requirements, and write clear, concise documentation to support its use. You will also provide technical and process support as the design system is rolled out to others across the College.

You will have particular responsibility for maintaining our servers, including monitoring backups and SSL certificates, investigating and resolving any server issues, and creating and maintaining links between the servers and our Github repositories.

With both great technical and great communication skills, you will support our team to build the best possible e-learning product for our students.

Key responsibilities

  • Develop and maintain our central design system for the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), following the briefs provided by our UX team
  • Take the lead in maintaining our servers so that they work effectively and efficiently
  • Develop clever and efficient solutions to technological problems
  • Engage with open source development projects and represent King’s College London, as well as King’s Online in the communities around them
  • Help encourage a culture where accessibility and tech sustainability is embedded into all parts of development

The above list of responsibilities may not be exhaustive, and the post holder will be required to undertake such tasks and responsibilities as may reasonably be expected within the scope and grading of the post.
