    I design online training that can be used to train clients, employees, students, or any audience with your learning requirements. Whether you're building training & development, onboarding; re-designing an old course, or building a completely new course from scratch, my instructional design process includes adult learning theory, teaching pedagogy, and social psychology approaches to building great learning experiences for your learners- it's the foundation of my work. I enjoy using tools like Articulate Rise 360, Canva, Figma, and Vyond to develop online trainings. These tools help me to use animations, graphics, images, and text, to make the trainings engaging, interactive, relevant and appealing. In other words, I like to make sure that the learner learns easily, loves the process of learning, and gets exactly what you are looking for! 👌 What's my process? Most content I receive from clients comes to me as 'long pages of incomprehensible text' about some policy, product instructions, an entire product, lists of skills, or a list of bullet points. In my process, I break your information down into small chunks, connect the dots with a story (i love storytelling), include updated graphics, infographics and images/animations that transform what used to be boring text into great learning experience. I create learning experiences that make learning fun for the learners, and meet your expectations. As a TEDx speaker and Speaker Coach, I know how to captivate audiences with engaging content. I start with a simple needs analysis, implement instructional design principles, consider learning theories, integrate learning strategies, build with taxonomies, and utilize evaluation techniques to make sure your learners meet their goals. I have designed learning experiences for some great companies, which have included designing and developing adult training programs, WBTs, VILTs, and also application training programs. From the necessary needs analysis to SME interviews and interactions, to design, development, and project management, I have demonstrated my efficiency in all aspects of the product cycle. Each project in the ID world is vastly different from the other, and each experience is an adventure in itself. Let's bring your e-Learning dreams to life and create unforgettable presentations together. Reach out and let's chat about your project!

    Are you in search of a seasoned instructional designer who can craft engaging and effective online courses tailored to your specific needs? Look no further! As an experienced professional on Fiverr, I specialize in utilizing adult learning principles to create customized online courses that truly resonate with your target audience. **Analysis:** My instructional design process begins with a comprehensive analysis of your objectives and your learners' needs. By conducting a thorough needs assessment, I ensure that the course is precisely tailored to your audience, their skill levels, and their learning preferences. This initial step is the foundation upon which I build the entire learning experience. **Design:** Drawing on my extensive experience in instructional design, I craft a blueprint for your online course that aligns with adult learning principles. The design phase includes structuring the course content for optimal retention, creating engaging learning activities, and mapping out the overall flow of the course. The goal is to provide an effective, learner-centered experience. **Storyboarding:** To maintain a clear vision of the course's design, I develop detailed storyboards that outline each module or section. Storyboarding helps ensure that the course content is logically organized, and that all multimedia elements, such as videos, images, and quizzes, are seamlessly integrated for a cohesive and immersive learning experience. **Development:** During the development phase, I bring your course to life by creating engaging content and interactive elements. I pay close attention to the presentation of information, ensuring it's both engaging and informative. Multimedia elements are designed to enhance the learning process and align with your course goals. **Implementation Planning:** Once the course content is complete, I work closely with you to plan a successful launch. This includes assistance with setting up the course on your chosen learning management system (LMS) and providing guidance on how to effectively promote the course to your target audience. My goal is to help you achieve a seamless and impactful course launch. **Evaluation:** I believe that continuous improvement is key to successful online learning experiences. Therefore, I establish evaluation processes to measure the course's effectiveness. This includes collecting learner feedback, analyzing course analytics, and making data-driven adjustments to enhance the learning journey further. With my expertise in instructional design and commitment to K-12 education and adult learning principles, you can rest assured that the online course I create for you will be effective, engaging, and aligned with your specific goals. Whether you're in need of employee training, educational content, or any other form of e-learning, my services are tailored to deliver results that truly matter. Let's embark on this journey together, and let me help you create online courses that make a lasting impact on your learners.

Here is what a few of my recent Upwork clients have said about my work: "Barb is one of the best people I could ever hope to work with! I could not be happier with the course that she created and the time in which it took her. If you are in the market for a curriculum designer, writer, editor, etc., look no further than Ms. Barbara Babcock." "Barbara provided actionable feedback for our due diligence review of a company in the corporate learning/training sector. Highly knowledgeable and efficient." "Barb has been one of my most favorite people in life not just in education or the company. She not only brings a huge knowledge base in the education and curriculum design space, she also understands that young entrepreneurs change their minds... and adjusts accordingly. She is the sine qua non for what it means to be user friendly; so much so that I have hired her for another course already! Another bonus, she is an excellent writer and routinely provides ghost written blog posts and other helpful illustrations and articles that we use to teach our students and clients. I highly recommend anyone looking for a curriculum designer to choose Barb." "Barbara is incredibly responsive and knowledgeable in the personal & professional development space. She put together very detailed outlines for a workshop that we can host in person or turn into a webinar. She offered great ideas and took direction really well to produce what we needed. I would definitely tap her expertise again and rehire." MY EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND I hold an M.A. in Education and Human Development from George Washington University. Please take a look at my portfolio to see a small sample of my work. Message me for an introductory consultation, and we'll see how I can put my expertise to work for you.

I continue to create training across many industries, and in every format, from Instructor Led Training to Virtual Reality.

How to Hire Instructional Designers

What is an instructional designer?

An instructional designer is a professional who uses various tools to communicate with an audience in a way that ensures everyone takes something relevant from the information presented. An instructional designer might use content development, web design, and graphic design to shape information for easier understanding and better retention.

How do you hire an instructional designer?

You can source instructional designers on Upwork by following these three steps:

  1. Write a project description. You’ll want to determine your scope of work and the skills and requirements you are looking for in an instructional designer.
  2. Post it on Upwork. Once you’ve written a project description, post it to Upwork. Simply follow the prompts to help you input the information you collected to scope out your project.
  3. Shortlist and interview instructional designers. Once the proposals start coming in, create a shortlist of the professionals you want to interview. 

Of these three steps, your project description is where you will determine your scope of work and the specific type of instructional designer you need to complete your project.

  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain industries, software, or audiences, mention this here. 
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.
