Autotutor was founded in 2016 by Mike and Tom McDonnell.
The Autotutor Team
Mike McDonnell holds a Ph.D. in electrical engineering, and worked as a research scientist for over twenty five years. He was involved with digital image processing, remote sensing, geophysics and the space program. His work experience includes periods at University of Canterbury, Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (New Zealand), U.S. Geological Survey, University of Maryland and BHP. He has also taught at university level, and has more recently worked as director of a financial planning business. He is now involved in the development of Autotutor as an efficient and targeted learning tool.
Tom McDonnell almost completed a bachelor's degree in computer systems engineering, but dropped out in his final year to pursue an employment opportunity. For the past ten years he has been working professionally as a computer programmer. Tom remembers what it was like to study for exams, and believes that period of his life would have been easier if he had access to Autotutor.
