Online Teaching Examples

This is an example of an instructional video I created for my LDT 620 students at UMGC to clarify some of the steps in creating a design document for a three-lesson course. I currently teach LDT 610 (Learning Design and Digital Pedagogy) and LDT 620 (Learning Design, Media, and Emerging Technologies) in the  MS in Learning Design and Technology at University of Maryland, Global Campus.

Most of the work I have completed was proprietary or I do not have access to samples. I am currently creating an exemplar using Adobe Rise. The following is a list of courses I teach:

  • LDT 610
  • LDT 620

University of Maryland Global Campus

I served as a SME (subject-matter expert)/Instructional Design Contractor on the program redesign for the program in which I’m currently teaching. I developed this tutorial to demonstrate how to create a student porfolio using Google Sites.
