Some work samples are below.  Please contact me if you are looking for something below that you cannot find.

Check out my blog for other samples.

eLearning  Design and Development

  • Video-based Training (Video-based Instruction) – This eLearning course was used heavily in a classroom program.  It was created in Storyline 2, published as SCORM and tracked by the classroom instructors (1 of several of these).
  • Read it/Quiz it Training (SCORM package to track reading materials) – This Storyline course was packaged for addition to training programs using embedded PDFs and quizzing.
  • Video-Based Instruction and Quizzing – We packaged all video files with assessments from our annual convention in this work sample.   I created the layout, packaged the content using our company’s branding using company guidelines
  • Software Simulation – Created this software simulation as an interactive demonstration of how to use software using Adobe Captivate.  This file only contains part of the simulation as I was not able to disclose entire project as part of contract.
    NOTE:  Must download, then open each in Adobe Reader for full functionality.
  • Download the right browser – This was created in graduate school and used within our LMS platform with the intent to instruct students on how to get the supported web browser based on their operating system.
  • Employee On-Boarding Project – Completed a three module on-boarding for new employees on a tight budget.  We had no voice talent, so used a text to speech generator in Captivate to produce each module.
    NOTE:  Must download, then open each in Adobe Reader for full functionality.
