I’m an instructional designer who develops engaging e-learning that makes a difference in how people do their jobs. My goal is to create online learning that uses technology and storytelling to draw participants in and lets them practice new skills in ways that will easily transfer to the workplace.
Specialties: Curriculum design, instructional design, e-learning, project management, accessibility, obscure Microsoft Office shortcuts.
As a freelance instructional designer, I create engaging learning experiences. I can get know-how out of a subject matter expert's head and transform it into a valuable learning experience for others. I have converted multiple face-to-face classes for online learning. For example, I converted one soft skills training course to self-paced e-learning, adding branching video scenarios for learners to practice the skills in context. I also provide project management and learning technology consulting, including helping clients use LMSs effectively and select the best tools to meet their needs.
I was part of a team converting a year-long sales training program from face-to-face to blended learning with TelePresence and WebEx. I led the efforts to create a learning portal in Moodle to integrate all of the different parts of the training: content, collaboration, scheduling, and assessment. I also developed sales and technical training.

I designed and developed online university courses using html, CSS, Photoshop, Captivate, and other tools, focusing on creating engaging learning experiences with solid content and ample opportunity for interaction.
I designed, developed, and reviewed instructor-led and web-based courses for clients. I ensured quality of courses and adherence to standards.
I coordinated development and maintenance of online university courses with authentic assessment and real-world activities. I was the liaison between the online course development group and other teams, including brick and mortar campuses, program chairs, and IT. I started as an Instructional Designer in July 2004, was promoted to Curriculum Specialist Jan 2005, and promoted to Assistant Director July 2005.
I provided face-to-face training on Microsoft Office and other software applications for multiple corporations. I listened to people's questions and issues and helped them learn how to use applications more effectively to solve those problems.
I taught 5th through 8th grade general music, band, and choir, and I developed curriculum and lesson plans aligned to state, national and Edison Schools standards.
I taught K-12 music and band, as well as developing extensive materials for high school music appreciation course.

Documenting course design and development processes is an important element of project management and process improvement. A wiki is a great improvement over more static forms of documentation, and as an added bonus, if it's Open Source it will save you money!
