Quick Start Guides & Live Practice Sessions

Content Creation Module

Based on original content from teacher Lori Bell and feedback from the pilot program participants, Project Coordinator Arden Kirkland and I redesigned the Design for Learning (D4L) Content Creation module for the public launch in WebJunction. This included development of more comprehensive tools, resource lists, and activities as well as significant rechunking and ordering of the content to create better flow and sourcing visual content to support key points. My most significant contribution to the module was recording the audio and video components, making me the face and voice of the module

Quick Start Guides & Live Practice Sessions

I was first hired as a Project Assistant in the Design for Learning (D4L) Project while I was a student. I managed forums in the D4L Moodle LMS, scheduled and hosted technology practice sessions with other students, authored Quick Start Guides for synchronous meeting/presentation tools, and curated the Group Zotero Library. The tools that I taught other students to use included Adobe Connect, Talking Communities, Zoom, WebEx Meeting and Event, and Blackboard Collaborate. I also taught Basics of Moodle for D4L, focusing on the most used and needed features, including a Quick Start Guide with additional tips. In January 2017, I co-producing a series of videos with another trainter to distill what we learned in those practices sessions, as well as compiling resources from the web to help future asynchronous students get started. The videos are meant to give a taste of the live practice session for students in the asynchronous WebJunction environment.
