Do you need someone that understands the technical aspect of the web
as well as someone passionate about the power of interactive learning?
If so, Peter K. Johnson and Web Explorations is a great choice for your team.
The Challenge: Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) had two massive PowerPoints documenting the knowledge and experience of their department experts, Bituminous and Concrete Repair. They needed to make the information accessible to supervisors out in the field and as well as on the web.
Video comparing original PowerPoint to Articulate Storyline conversion
The Solution: Using Articulate Storyline 360 I converted the PowerPoint information creating a web-ready document that:
Here is a video clip showing many of the features that are available with the web-accessible version.
You can view the Bituminous Knowledge Book on the MnDOT website. (The Concrete Repair Book is currently being developed.)
Client: The Center for Business and Industry (CBI) - South Central College
Challenge: Tanja Stading with CBI had established a grant with the Minnesota and Economic Development to create contextual learning modules training new employees on the basic concepts used in manufacturing.
Other criteria included:
Here is one of the worksheets supplied by the subject matter expert. Drill Bits and How to Use Them A Word document
Solution: Working with the subject matter experts, we came up with seven topics:
Each module was developed using RISE giving a consistent user interface. Interactive exercises were imported into RISE after being created using Articulate Storyline 360.
I wrote the script and recorded the English narrations for each slide. The script was translated into Spanish and a second narration was recorded. A duplicate module was created with the Spanish narration.
The Client: South Central Service Cooperative (SCSC)
The Challenge: Create an information technology academy, SourceCode, for high school students that can be delivered online. College credits will be earned by students successfully completing these courses.
The Solution: Developed courseware for three high school courses based on my college curriculum.
Working with the SCSC team my work focused on the following:
Here is a video clip by one of the students who has completed this program.
The Client: Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging
The Challenge: Work with a remote team developing a certification course for counselors working with couples dealing with dementia. The finished course will include interactive video, online evaluation tools, and an assessment for certification. Course must meet several state health certification guidelines.
The Solution: Met with the development team on a weekly basis via Zoom. As the designer and SME completed the storyboard (using PowerPoint) for each section, I created the final course materials using Articulate Storyline and published the course to Moodle.
The course included several videos, showing various situations that a counselor might encounter. The videos paused at specific points, posing a question to the learner before proceeding. This made the video experience more interactive and allowed the learner to form strategies on their own before the video showed one possible option.
Several activities, developed in Articulate Storyline, were used by the counselors after the course to help couples make decisions about their lifestyle, roles, and when to request support services as their relationship changed due to the disease.
