UMACHA AAP Video
I created this video in a collaborative volunteer project with UMACHA.org. It was a problem I have solved often, creating a short visual educational video to replace an aged lengthy webinar. The Training Director and I worked closely to validate my content and new theme was on track. For visuals, I worked with their Marketing team to find out what we could use or reuse at no extra cost. It has served them well this year!
SlideShare Course: Leadership Sources of Power
This self-paced course appeals to learners through real-life problems, realistic examples and interactive polling. Learners can recall or scan content quickly using the automatic narrative. It extends the learning experience with links to additional resources. The tools to create the mobile-friendly course cost very little, yet it has reached over 28,000 learners without self-promotion.
Event Summary: Is the LMS Dead? PDXEdTech Event
Using my photos and notes, I compiled a quick summary of a local Meetup event. I used interviews, websites and LinkedIn profiles to accurately reflect each participant’s marketing vision. Through links, e-mails and Twitter handles, learners can continue exploring topics of interest.
Video: The Online Banking Test Scripts Project
A short video describing a short technical writing project. I used software testing, gap analysis, flow charting and technical writing skills to help a large financial services client quickly solve a documentation problem. The flow charting and process analysis has become a popular pattern in my recent instructional design work.
Blogs: Conquering the Fear of Social Media
In this short blog series, I persuade reluctant job hunters to consider giving social media a try as a way to connect with others. Learners may choose which path to take.
Research Paper: Using of Training Models to Improve Training Practices
An example of a research paper on instructional design theory: the ADDIE and Kirkpatrick training models. Will either theory help the corporate trainer who is stuck in rut? I wrote this paper for a short cram course entitled “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” based on the popular work of Dr. Stephen R. Covey.
