Hi! I love creating online courses and instructional materials on topics I love. So far, I've written a statistics textbook (Street-Smart Stats: A Friendly Introduction to Statistical Research Methods) and created an introductory chess course, a penmanship course, and an algebra course that focuses on topics that are essential in understanding calculus.
To actually pay the bills, I run an instructional design consulting firm, TURN THE WHEEL, that helps organizations create digital learning experiences for their clients, customers, and workforce. These courses have much larger budgets than the ones I make by myself. For one thing, we do professional video shoots rather than filming on my iPhone, as I've done for my own personal courses.
I love both creating my own courses--my side hobby--and working with big organizations. I love having the creative control to design curricula on topics I'm passionate about, and I love working with people to design courses that meet their needs (and learning a lot from the subject-matter experts with whom I collaborate).
Another side project is creating a mobile learning platform that anyone can use to both create and take courses directly from their phone. I'm hoping this will empower people all over the world who don't have computers to create learning materials that will benefit their local communities and beyond.
I'm really passionate about online learning, and am especially excited to see how VR and AR revolutionize the way we learn.
Thanks for reading!
