From paper to digital, to relevant and interactive!
Tacit and formal knowledge transfer requires careful management and planing. I can assists in outlining learning course plans, develop overall learning strategy and gather all the necessary existing printed and digital materials.
Relying on the Knowledge Management methodology, I gather and document all existing information and knowledge that are still tacit in the brain of your staff, Subject Matter Experts, stakeholders, managers and senior level leaders.
But let's not forget the learners. In order to produce anything meaningful, I always suggest to my clients to put together a survey or a simplified TNA, trying to identify learner’s needs, motivation and attitudes in general.
This comprehensive approach helps to identify the best approach to take in designing the learning program.

My approach to visual design as consistency and simplicity.
Visually stimulating graphics, interactions, effective implementation of learner interface and user experience design are very important factors in an online learning environment.
I try to present the visuals in a way that is simple for end users to follow, avoiding over the top 'eye-candy'.
For designing learning, I use proven diagnostic methodologies, information mapping techniques and curriculum development processes to scope individual modules, using scenario and action-based storytelling techniques utilising variety of ID frameworks (BLOOM, Gagnè’s) and learning environments (online, classroom or blended).

I utilise latest web technologies, eLearning authoring tools & software.
One day I can be writing content, designing User Interfaces or delivering face-to-face training. The next day I am just as happy solving complex SCORM issues or developing Captivate modules.
I implement and customise LMS's such as Moodle; assist in front-end to back-end integrations, develop micro-sites and learning portals.

Typically, project managers are not directly involved in actual project work...
Having a strong technical background is very helpful when managing projects. I have proven track record in successfully managing projects (from research and design to implementation) and managing team of designers and programmers.
