Distance Course Design Instructional Design Assistant Special Education Law Graduate Course

A course contracted by the Special Education Dept in the College of Education at UH, an online graduate level course was designed and built.  As an ID Assistant I worked with the ID Team and the Graphic Design Team to build a complete course curriculum and engaging experience for students.  With guidance from the Subject Matter Expert, instructional resources were collected, curated, and tailored to the teaching style of the instructor.  The course was set for delivery in 2012.

Web Resource re-Design Project Manager DCDC Instructor Support Website

Managing a small team of IDs and Instructional Support Specialists, I led the effort to rework the official support website for instructors of courses built by the Distance Course Design and Consulting Group (DCDC).  Instructional resources were fleshed out and organized for ease of use and extensive copyediting and formatting produced a more welcoming and informative support website.  (That’s also me in the center photo on the homepage.)

Capstone Project Independent Technology and Distance Programs Instructor Resource Site

Completed as a capstone project for the University of Hawaii’s Master of Education (Educational Technology) Program, I framed and mocked up a support resource website for distance educators.  Meant as a companion site to the DCDC Support website, this site intended to assist UH instructors teaching online for the first time, using a range of tools and with varying experience levels.  Through iterations of structure and the selection of essential topics, the site was built and was subjected to usability testing involving faculty in the College of Education.  My capstone paper on which this project was based can be found here.
