Data Security: Phishing

This course is one of a series of short (10 minute) courses in a suite of "Data Security" learning modules. It's intended to be an introductory course targeting employees at both the Higher Ed and K-12 levels. My roles in the creation of this course were SME (I'm currently working on an MS in Computer Science at Georgia Tech), course developer, visual designer, and audio engineer. While I cast, edited, and mixed the audio for the two videos, I was lucky to have two After Effects experts who could bring the concept to life. I've also created a data security course related to malware.

Prevent Discrimination and Harassment Together

If you've been an instructional designer for any length of time, you've probably built a workplace harassment course at some point. I originally built this course using the Adapt Builder, because Storyline 2 wasn't sufficient for our mobile development needs. After Storyline 360 became available, I ported the course over as we were starting to experience some growing pains with the Adapt Framework. This course was designed for faculty and staff in a Higher Ed setting. Note: I did not write the content or create the animated videos for this course. I did develop the course, record and edit the audio, and edit the video using the actors.

Prevent Sexual Violence Together

This course is the companion course to the previous course, however this course addresses the role that faculty and staff play in addressing sexual violence on campus.

Heat Illness Prevention

This course was designed to address heat illness prevention at the K-12 level and the target audience was coaches, staff, and athletes. The design idea was to create a SportsCenter-like course to appeal to the athletes. For this course, I did everything associated with the course production. This course was the inspiration for a LinkedIn post I wrote about using green screen video in an e-learning course.

Concussion Awareness - Athletes

I created three concussions courses, overall, at United Educators. I'm not showing the version which was paired with the heat illness course for K-12 coaches, staff, and athletes. This version was created for Higher Ed athletes. Of the three, this one was probably the most difficult as studies have shown that collegiate athletes are very hesitant to reveal that they're suffering symptoms of a concussion. I did everything associated with the production of this course.

Concussion Awareness - Coaches

This version of the concussion awareness course was targeted at coaches and staff. The course casts the learner as a reporter uncovering the facts of a recent concussive injury. I did everything associated with the production of this course.

Avoiding Supervisory Pitfalls

This course was designed to help supervisors in Higher Ed avoid some of the common mistakes leading to claims of discrimination. One of the facets of this course that learners say they enjoy is the employment attorney's reactions to the scenarios that I present throughout the course. I did everything associated with the production of this course.

Blackjack

This "course" was designed as my entry into a contest sponsored by Articulate. I had been reading a lot about gamification and wanted to see how far I could push the Storyline product. In the end, I used a little bit of JavaScript, but I also used over 1,000 triggers to build a working version of a blackjack game. I did everything associated with the production of this course, but sadly I didn't win the contest.

BI Dashboard - Overview

This is one of a seven-part series of courses that I developed for GMs at The Cheesecake Factory restaurants. The reason for the training was to help familiarize them with a new business intelligence system. The rest of the courses made heavy use of software simulation, but this overview was more of the "why" than the "how." I chose a comic book style to help with engagement. I did everything associated with the production of this course.

New Hire Authorization Process - Overview

This was a course that I designed for employees of The Cheesecake Factory involved in the hiring process. The course covered their E-Verify process. In addition to this course, I also created an assessment that simulated interacting with the E-Verify system. I did everything associated with the production of this course


ServSafe Manager Online Course

This course represents one of my proudest achievements. When I was hired at The National Restaurant Association, I was tasked with designing a course player that could replace their current player. I built a system based on XML files that were the data source for the entire course. This allowed us to quickly translate and localize all of our content. I didn't write this course, shoot the images, or record the audio, but I did create the course player and manage a team of Flash developers who created all the screens. Everytime I walk into a restaurant and see a ServSafe certificate on the wall, I'm reminded of this course and what a leap forward it was for me.

SC Gear Up - Junior Year

This was a course that I made in Flash back when I was still putting courses on CD. Yeah, it's that old. It was created for the SC Commission on Higher Education and the target audience was juniors in high school. I didn't create the visuals for this course, but I did all the other development.

Gulf Region Smart Card

When The Cheesecake Factory began opening restaurants in the Middle East, teams from the U.S. went to ensure that the restaurants were opened smoothly and employees were trained correctly. This "smart card" was printed and laminated as a guide for acclimating to the culture. I also created short courses designed to help them adjust to each of the different countries they were spending time in. The teams very much appreciated the guides.
