E-learning Development & Instructional Design
This is my portfolio page. You’ll find links to a few examples of e-learning and instructional design work here. Much of the work I undertake is private, so you’ll mainly find example pieces, or work I have produced for my own courses. If you would like to see examples of work I have produced for clients, please contact me directly.

This interactive presentation was a first for me.
I developed the presentation as a part of my UCI E-learning Instructional Design Course. My task was to produce a review, including audio, of three different tools for e-learning. I chose to review three open source tools: Moodle, Audacity and Adapt Learning. I say it’s a first because it was the first time I had ever used Articulate Studio’13 to build an e-learning course. I think you’ll agree that the results are quite impressive!

I wrote this course to train language teachers to incorporate technology into their face-to-face classes.
Although it I wrote this for an academic audience, much of this sample’s contents are also relevant to a corporate training environment. How many ways can you think of to use the content for online corporate training?

A crucial moment before starting any e-learning course development is getting the documentation in order. Get this right, and your courseware development will be plain sailing. I’ve uploaded a couple of examples of my own project documentation:
1) E-learning Charter
The early stages of an e-learning project are all about discovering what a client actually wants and needs. A thorough discovery process and learning-needs analysis is one of the best ways to ensure that a client will be delighted with the learning you design and build for them. The place to present everything you discover in this phase is in a project charter. Click here to view a project charter I co-produced.
2) Instructional Design documentation.
In this documentation, the instructional designer includes just about everything that the e-learning developer will need to actually create the courseware, as well as some other more general details. Typically the ID documentation includes items like the instructional approach that has been taken and the rationale for these choices, an overview of the curriculum and its hierarchy, a styleguide, scripts for narration and so on.
