I create e-learning tools for libraries to train staff and volunteers. These are short, focused, self-paced modules designed to address specific learning objectives. I use Adobe Captivate as well as other tools to create the content.
Current project: Decoding Dewey
Please contact me if you have comments or want to discuss the creation of an e-learning project.
