Velocity Tool Training

This was a classroom training for the web-based Velocity tool, a project management system providing a multi-user environment with real-time data updates so that anyone in the company can instantly see the modifications carried out by others. The tool supported functionality for all phases of project management – including working with the project, working with the project schedule, requesting resources, and managing project costs.

International Business Certification

This project started as an instructional design consult. The project was to develop instructional resources that support the classroom instructor and students. The resources included:

  • Readings and Resources
  • Activities and Assessments
  • Presentation slides
  • Glossary

I was tasked to provide instructional design assistance as needed to the project manager and subject matter experts. I later took over as project manager to complete the project. When the products were ready, I provided information for the web site that hosts the materials.

Global Learning Demo Products

MSU Global asked me to demonstrate how Articulate could be used to deliver short learning experiences for their client. After a few hours exploring Articulate Studio (Presenter, Engage, and Quizmaker), I put together a quick demo based on preliminary input from a subject matter expert. They liked the model and decided to flush out the demo further. Once the demo was agreeable to their client, MSU Global staff took over to complete the project.

I had never used Articulate before but like so many other education applications, I was able to pick it up with ease.

Process Design Course

In this project, I was asked to support the efforts of the quality engineers at Nextel while they designed a process improvement model that would later become ISO9000 compliant. Using my skills and experience executing and teaching process improvement and process redesign, I helped the engineers fine tune their model and flush out their documentation and tools.
During this process, I created the Process Design Course, ITTR-Engr-3300. The goals of this three-day classroom course were to help Nextel staff:

Identifying and Assessing Available Technologies

One of my first ISD projects as IDCM Innovations. I was asked to create an online module that would help faculty identify and assess available instructional technologies. My part of the project was to be the ISD and subject matter expert. As a Sr. Instructional Designer and instructor of web/instructional technology for George Mason University, I felt I could help other instructors explore the use of technology in their instruction.

This project was submitted in 1999 and is still available. Updates have been made but the core of what I provided is still being used.
