Using WebEx for Interactive Sessions (2012)

When I was an Instructional designer working at John Snow Incorporated, we used to have Tech Tuesdays which were like Lunch & Learn events where we shared tips to improve our work.

Membership & Financial Management for Local Officers (2017)

While working as an Instructional Designer for the Massachusetts Teachers Association, I created 4 online courses using Rise (Articulate 360). I was only given enough time to spend on one course: Data Security for Local Associations (35 hours). Due to the short deadline (3 courses in about 2 weeks), I recorded the SMEs using join.me and chunked down their recordings into short videos. We added knowledge checks and revised a resources page for performance support. Watch the tour to learn more.

As a Training and Development Specialist at Partners Healthcare IS for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, I designed and developed the PeopleSoft Knowledge Base using Atlassian's Confluence for the PeopleSoft upgrade.
