This portfolio entry is the first title in my own e-learning library. Developed with Subject Matter Expert Sarah Harris and Hosted by Thirsty Scholars, this e-learning covers Safeguarding level 1 and the content of Keeping Children Safe in Education 2016. Please contact me for more information.
Willis - A small dog with a big job to do
26th July 2016
This portfolio entry is my latest entry for the Articulate E-Learning Heroes Weekly Challenge and was inspired by my experience of socialising and training a puppy for Hearing Dogs for Deaf people. The aim is to create an interactive story using photo collages. I hope this gives you an idea of the work that goes into training these wonderful dogs that go on to change a person's life.
Document and email security (e-learning for free)
23rd March 2016
This portfolio entry takes its inspiration from a project I have been developing recently and an instructional design assessment I was asked to complete. Both of these used high quality photographic images but when I investigated the cost of producing something similar, it was very expensive. So I set myself an additional challenge to see what I could create for free. The images included in this entry have mostly come from the very generous contributors to The Rapid e-Learning blog and the voice over was recorded using open source software Audacity. Otherwise, all it has cost is my time.
Where did the day go?

This photo story is taken from a time management course originally developed for characters in Walkgrove Ltd's Fundamentals series. After analysing what wastes your time, this story explores the impact it could be having.
Take 10 minutes a day looking at social network sites in an average year...
10 minutes x 260 days - 2600 minutes
2600 minutes = 43.3. hours
43.3. hours - approximately 1 working week
How many weeks do you waste? What else could you be doing with them?

This is my first entry in the Articulate E-Learning Heroes Weekly Challenge. The brief was to use sliders to demonstrate ergonomics and one suggestion was cycling. As a keen cyclist who hasn't yet been brave enough to use cleats (shoes that clip into the pedals), I thought I would remind myself how much easier it would be if I did. Many thanks to my patient husband for modelling for the photos.
Feedback from David Anderson: Welcome to the challenges, Lisa! Great use of sliders to breakdown cycling ergonomics. I just updated the recap t include your cool example.
Are you sure?

This is an example of a hook into what could be a very dry subject for e-learning. The course goes on to explain the importance of being insured properly, maintaining an inventory and correct storage of equipment referring back to the initial scenario throughout.
Creative button styles
2nd July 2015
This week's challenge was to have fun with buttons. To play with different shapes, styles and effects to show how you can use buttons creatively in e-learning. I have recently been working on a project where we have used icons as buttons to click and reveal Human Resources information. We have a palm tree for leave entitlements, a wheelchair for disability entitlements and a baby's bottle for parental leave entitlements. I thought I'd take this a step further and see what could be done with changing images. These are hand drawn for a different kind of effect but they could always be designed by a graphic designer.
