Web-Based Training for MSIDT
This eLearning module was built to help Instructional Designers understand and apply CONTRAST to their learning designs and better engage learners.

A brief video I created to show how motion and storytelling engages the brain.
A Video Art Lesson
I recorded this art lesson for art docents and elementary school kids. Using Camtasia, I wove my PowerPoint into the video.
Romero Britto Lesson
This art lesson is for K-5th graders. Learn about Romero Britto and his journey to becoming a famous Pop Artist. The art project is the step-by-step process of drawing the Britto inspired landscape. I created this for volunteer art docents to deliver to the students of a local elementary school. Because of COVID-19 I've begun creating the videos in video format.
In Web-based training, it's important to recognize that people read at different speeds. Offering the learner control over when they click to the next paragraph not only gives the designer more space to share important text, but it's engaging, seriously, who doesn't love clicking on buttons to see what happens?
Web-Based Training Example
This is the final project for my graduate certificate in eLearning Instructional Design through UC Irvine. My audience is the adult art docents that volunteer for the K-5th grade art docent program I developed.
On top of the organization, production, and design, I researched, wrote, and recorded all of the audio.
ANIMATED ENTRANCE - WITH SOUND
My goal was to use rich colors for the palette. I named the course to honor the volunteers that believe art is an important skillset in the development of children.
SCENARIO-BASED LEARNING - WITH SOUND
I believe in the power of scenario-based learning.
Throwing a likely challenge at a participant really makes them think about how they might respond in the situation.
If they don't know what to do, the material to help them is right there in the WBT for the taking.
DRAG AND DROP QUIZ
Using a quiz to reinforce material helps a learner retain information. They have to concentrate and possibly go back to the content to find the answer which makes the information stick further.
Microlearning Lobby Instructions
A brief video I created to show how a Webinar console works for the participant. This plays in the virtual lobby upon arrival while they wait for the webinar to begin.
This video is useful for people new to the webinar platform and assures that if the host forgets to instruct people on how features function they can still have a successful user experience.
Ways to Show Charts and Process
In this WBT, a lot of data and processes needed to be explained. I wanted to find unique ways to engage and disseminate information in a click or slide format. It is easier to understand the material if you reveal it at your own pace.
