EDIT 6100: Introduction to Instructional Technology
I chose this summative product from the introductory course in the IDD program because it describes the history, predicts trends for the future, and highlights just how big of an idea defining the field was to wrap my mind around. This artifact is the first time I show how I understand learning as a design process with multiple iterations and evaluations. I had yet to encounter basic design strategies, and likely would have chosen a sans serif font and a different color scheme for my presentation if I were to do this over again.
EDIT 7550: Project Management in Instructional Technology
This course focused on principles of program management with an emphasis on skills used when managing eLearning and technology projects. I worked in a group with Ben Hall and Chris Nylund to create a how-to video on the UGA Gwinnett web page on removing account flags and holds in Athena (the student information system for UGA) for the Director of UGA Gwinnett.
We provided a scope document, work breakdown schedule, communication protocol, and an assessment and evaluation strategy. The video produced can be found here. I am very proud of the initiative I took to better learn the tools available within the project management software my employer provided to me. I later used what I learned in this course to manage projects professionally, including collaborating with all parties on determining a realistic timeframe for each task of the project.
