    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!

I also work with my clients to develop actual curriculum content that is used to develop in-person and online training. As an eLearning Designer, I can create any training videos, self-paced learning, or teaching aids, in any form like PowerPoint, Canva files, or Adobe Captivate student-paced, online training with SCORM compliance. As a learning management administrator, I help clients who find themselves unable to navigate through their systems.

I act as the administrator by either creating and managing user profiles and groups, or by creating and importing training; complete with professional graphics and covers. Though I primarily work in training and learning management, I also have experience as a business analyst and writer, I can either operate in support of a project manager or as a project manager.

    I'm an e-learning specialist, with experience creating courses on various content, from HR platforms to financial tools to Microsoft Office apps. I started my journey in a science classroom teaching biology to students with disabilities. When the pandemic began, and we switched to remote learning, I saw the disparities in technology across my students, and their families. I started my Master's in Instructional Technology to better be able to support teachers, students, and their families with using technology to instruct and learn. This Master's brought me to explore new career paths where I could create courses and content on a larger scale. I currently work in one of the top healthcare institutions in the US, creating courses and videos for different departments across the enterprise. I've built upon my passion for instruction and technology, and want to continue to grow my skills and create content for companies in different industries. I'm extremely detail-oriented, and will never submit work that isn't my best. I'm able to adapt in tricky situations, and find new solutions to challenges.

    I am an experienced user of Articulate Storyline, and can edit and incorporate audio, visual, and multimedia assets (such as Vyond animation) to enrich the learner’s experience. With a strong background in instructional design and e-learning course development, I feel I have the experience and ability to create engaging and effective learning experiences. In my previous roles, I have collaborated closely with subject matter experts (SMEs) to understand course objectives, target audiences, and content requirements. Utilising sound instructional design principles (I tend to use ARCS models of motivation, Mayers 12 principles and various ways of measuring added value). I have created e-learning courses that are not only informative but also engaging and interactive. My approach is to combine user engagement and storytelling techniques to enhance the learning experience, ensuring that each course is compelling and effective. I have experience in developing storyboards that outline course structure, content, and interactive elements. Additionally, I can create assessments, scenarios and case studies as necessary and evaluations to measure learning outcomes, ensuring that courses meet their objectives and, where appropriate, adhere to accreditation standards. Moreover, I can manage multiple projects simultaneously, adhering to deadlines, and maintaining high-quality standards. I aim to stay across emerging trends and best practices in instructional design and e-learning technologies, and hopefully reflect these advances in the courses I develop. I am a good communicator and have worked with distributed teams, SMEs and stakeholders; I use the review function in Storyline to help ensure that course developments stay on track, on time and on budget.

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.

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.
