In 2014, Sam started as a Senior Learning Technologies Consultant focused on user support for Vula and lecture recording. Since then she has been involved in the maintenance and development of learning technologies at UCT as the team's operations manager. The Learning Technologies team supports, maintains and enhances useful technologies at UCT. In particular, it focuses on Vula, UCT's online learning management system, and the lecture recording which is growing across campus. Vula and lecture recording are both based on open-source technologies, connected to the Sakai and Opencast projects respectively. Sam's team also supports other technologies that facilitate learning and teaching such as video conferencing and Turnitin, and engages with the opensource community on various other Apereo projects such as Xerte and Tsugi.
