About Author(s)

Richard M. Roberts - For the past 35 years, Richard Roberts has been designing curriculum, teaching Electricity and Electronics as well as Computer Technology, and supervising technical teachers. Mr. Roberts is an accomplished programmer and computer technician. He has experience as the system administrator for Novell NetWare, Microsoft NT, and IBM Token Ring networking systems. He possesses a Bachelor's degree in Technical Education and a Master's degree in Administration/ Supervision. He also has CompTIA A+, Network+, iNet+, and Security+ certifications and is a certified IT technician, remote desktop support technician, and depot technician.

His computer experiences started as early as 1974 when he began programming and teaching the Motorola 6800, which eventually evolved into the Motorola 68000, once the core processor of the Apple Macintosh computer system. Since then, Mr. Roberts has maintained his teaching status to both instructors and students as the technology has evolved, and he has remained at a state-of-the-art technical level through research, teaching, and applications. He is currently an adjunct instructor at South Florida Community College where he teaches PC repair, A+ Certification, Network Fundamentals, Network+ Certification, and many short workshops in various Microsoft business applications. He authored the textbooks Networking Fundamentals and Computer Service and Repair and coauthored the textbook Electricity and Electronics as well as designed and programmed the accompanying interactive CD-ROM.

In addition to his current position, Mr. Roberts has taught at Erwin Technical Center and Tampa Bay Technical High School, and he has taught adults in the military service. His time is now divided between computer consulting and applications, teaching students and instructors, and writing textbooks and other ancillary instructional materials. Occasionally, he goes fishing, but not too often.
