It was while I was working at a major market research company in London that I began my e-learning career as a developer. They were moving more into e-learning and had purchased XStream RapidBuilder to do the job. It wasn't easy to use but we were really excited by the results. Moving on, they updated to Lectora and took me with them.
I've got more of a reputation as an Instructional Designer these days but really love the creative side of developing. I'm currently updating to Articulate Storyline 2 and enjoying seeing what is possible.
