Imaginative and creative
As well as working for large companies, I also act as an instructional designer and developer for consultants who would like to produce their own e-learning. I work with them to produce imaginative and creative online learning experiences for their own unique offering.
At the end of 2008 I met Jane Sheehan, the UK's leading footreader. Jane delivers a 2 day seminar called Solestry - the art of foot reading all over the UK as well as internationally. At the time, Jane had been looking for a way, not only to cut down on the amount of travelling she had to do but also for a way to make her seminar available to more people. An e-learning solution fitted the bill.
To make the e-learning as similar to attending one of Jane's seminars as possible, we recorded Jane delivering a seminar live and then incorporated these recordings into the e-learning seminar.

Music has always been an important part of Christine's life. She studied the flute with flute teacher Clare Tristram from the age of 8, and as a teenager enjoyed performing with Bury Schools Music Service ensembles and orchestras. Today Christine has made the village of Olney, Buckinghamshire her home. She teaches from home, offering private flute tuition, piano tuition and music theory.
Christine and I were introduced in response to demand for a more concise, easy to understand, and fun method of music tuition as she had been astonished at the lack of stimulating resources for her pupils both online and in published workbooks and textbooks.
In collaboration, we worked on the storyboard and I then went on to develop Grade 1 in Lectora. Each lesson incorporates interactive screens with audio explanations, step-by-step instructions for notation and quizzes to test your newly acquired knowledge.
I have since taught Christine how to use Lectora herself and she has gone on to develop Grades 2 to 5.
