Design for online learning is a highly sought-after skill in these challenging times. As a learning designer and consultant with extensive HE and business experience I help you to identify what is required, establish a content strategy and can also help you to select the right people to make it happen.

Online Learning Design

I help you to clarify your goals, establish a clear process, bring the right team together and deliver online learning effectively. Experience with online learning pedagogies and technologies helps you to make it happen.

Online Programmes

Planning to deliver online programmes in 2020-21? I specialise in helping institutions move to online learning using proven online pedagogies, processes and baseline standards that keep things simple.  

Learning Content

Students need engaging activities and content that helps them to achieve good results in their assessment scores. I am experienced in advising academics and producing engaging content to meet learning objectives.

Project Implementation

Good implementation involves online learning specialists and learning technologists collaborating effectively with the academic community. We will establish clear goals and use straightforward communication.

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
