"So what is the process going to look like?"

I get asked this question a lot. I talk often about how important having a framework/ process is in Instructional Design in the same way it is in any other type of product engineering fields.


My process for working with clients to transform their ideas or existing content into engaging online learning curriculum is centered around a collaborative, client-focused approach that leverages my extensive experience in instructional design and educational technology. Here's a detailed explanation based on my accomplishments and methodology:





1. Initial Consultation and Needs Assessment:

- You begin by understanding the client's objectives, target audience, and the specific challenges they face with their current curriculum. This involves detailed discussions to gather insights into what the client hopes to achieve with the transformation.

2. Strategic Planning and Design:

- Leveraging your expertise as a Chief Learning Architect, you develop a project roadmap that outlines the steps required to transform the curriculum. This includes identifying key instructional design principles, technologies, and content delivery methods that will be used to enhance the learning experience

3. Development of Tailored Educational Materials:

- You focus on creating or enhancing educational materials that are tailored to the client's needs. This includes utilizing advanced technologies for interactive content to increase course engagement and ensure that the online learning content is accessible, engaging, and effective.

4. Implementation of Best Practices:

- Throughout the process, you emphasize instructional design best practices, such as the application of Multimedia Learning and Universal Design principles. This ensures ADA compliance and meets the adult learning needs in a virtual environment, catering to a diverse range of learners

5. Quality Assurance and Continuous Improvement:

- Your approach includes rigorous quality assurance processes to ensure sustainable deliverables. This involves regular review sessions with the client to assess the effectiveness of the online content and make necessary adjustments. Your commitment to continual learning helps you stay updated on industry trends and best practices, ensuring that the solutions you provide are cutting-edge.

6. Client Collaboration and Satisfaction:

- Achieving high client satisfaction is a hallmark of your process. You collaborate closely with clients to meet their objectives, ensuring transparent communication throughout the project. This collaborative approach has led to a 98% client satisfaction rate, highlighting your ability to meet and exceed client expectations


My approach is characterized by both systematic rigor and adaptability, guaranteeing tailored solutions that cater to the distinct requirements of each client. This results in the conversion of their curriculum into vibrant and interactive online learning materials. Successful product design companies, such as Apple and Airbnb, thrive because they construct their products upon solid systems and structures rooted in Design Thinking principles and user data. Continuous collaboration between experts and engineers ensures that ego doesn't obstruct the creation process with a focus on aesthetics over functionality. Instead, emphasis is placed on crafting something truly useful.


I look forward to working with you!
