Goal of the Project

As Media Technologist at Heartland Community College I was tasked with creating an asynchronous online training to serve as an orientation for the Continuing Education Department's Youth Enrichment Program (YEP) instructors in 2015 for the Summer 2016 youth course offerings. This training was to orient the instructors to their responsibilities while serving as a teacher of youth programs offered at the college. The training needed to be asynchronous, online, easily accessible via a variety of devices (mobile, tablet, laptop, and desktop computers). Instructors should feel confident in their ability to understand their obligations and responsibilities upon viewing this training.

Solution to the Problem

The creation of the YEP Orientation training for instructors includes a 29 slide Adobe Captivate training designed with audio narration, visual elements, graphics, a user interface and closed captioning for all audio.

Each element of this training was developed in conjunction with the Heartland Community College Continuing Education department staff and the college's Director of Professional Development.

I performed all wireframing, graphic layout, design elements, photo editing, audio narration and instructional design of this online orientation. I placed all of the elements together using Adobe Captivate 7 to create the final training.
