I am an eLearning developer with 7 years experience designing creative and engaging courses for business clients and academic institutions. I firmly believe that an engaging user experience is the most important aspect of effective and successful eLearning solutions, which results in retained and implemented knowledge and behaviours. I use a variety of learning theories to support the instructional design process to ensure that your learners get the most out of their online experience. If your training requirements are for staff, my eLearning will ensure that they retain what they have learnt, and put it into practice in the workplace.
My eLearning courses have been subject to a variety of quality inspections, including national exam boards and OFSTED.
My work includes the instructional design process and storyboarding, through to full graphic and web design to create a fully interactive experience for the learner. I am a fully competent graphic designer, and the branding and corporate appearance of the courses that I create are all part of the process.
I have previously taught and trained in colleges, and have combined this with my web development and graphic design experience to become an eLearning developer. Previous clients and employers include Morrisons, Learn Direct, EDF Energy, Newcastle College Group and Gloucestershire College. I currently work for 100% Effective, a business improvement training and consultancy company.
I studied a Masters degree in Interactive Media at the University of Gloucestershire, and completed a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education.
I currently live in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. When I’m not working on exciting eLearning projects, I can be found walking in the countryside, helping out at the local theatre, chatting about fashion on Twitter, and enjoying evenings out with friends.
