Founder, Learning Engineer
After forty years teaching (high school, college and government agencies) and nearly 20 years designing and managing learning initiatives, I have seen opportunities and roadblocks for realizing long-term learning and performance.
Developing a purposeful and well-defined online course, which supports the instructor and learner, means devoting the appropriate time and embedding the applicable course elements into the online environment. To solve this dilemma, I knew that an automated instructional design tool would benefit so many people in the education and training world. But I didn’t know anything about creating software. However, I get it that I couldn’t be intimidated by what I don’t know.
Ignorance can be a great strength and ensure that I do things differently from everyone else. But I still wonder about things like: If all the world is a stage, where is the audience sitting?
