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.

Case Study: An MSIDT Experience
This assignment was to research and write an example of how engaged pedagogy in a digital environment works.
A brief motion graphic video shows how motion and storytelling engage the brain. This was built using Powtoon.
This is Your Brain While Learning
This was created with Camtasia. It is an information video within a Web-based training for Instructional Designers learning visual design principles.
A Video Art Lesson
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.
I recorded this art lesson for art docents and elementary school kids. Using Camtasia, I wove my PowerPoint into the video.
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 skill set 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
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 was designed using Camtasia.
Ways to Show Process
USING A SLIDER TO REVEAL CONTENT
When there are a lot of steps in a process or a considerable amount of information, I like 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.
