Information Security

LearnX Impact Awards 2017 Gold Winner (Best Induction/Onboarding Project category) An online course about information security structured like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” game. All new staff have to learn about information security as part of their induction. We found that staff often overlook this topic due to its dry nature. The solution was to put a fun and humourous spin to it. We structured the content as scenarios or “cases” that revolved around Steve, a fictional character. As Steve fumbles his way through various work situations, the learner has to help Steve make the right choices in order to keep his information secure. I led and managed this project from concept to production. This included: Collaboration with subject matter experts (staff from ICT) Establishing a learner sequence Developing story ideas and branching options Scripting the content for online delivery Storyboarding Creating the media assets Prototyping and building Testing and launch All production was done in-house, and the course launched to positive feedback. Staff were instantly engaged with the plight of Steve, and the course was adapted for use across the whole of Department of Communities. The course, as part of an induction suite, won Gold at the LearnX Impact Awards 2017. Work completed while […]

Compass Learning Management System

The Housing Authority changed to a new learning management system called Compass in 2015. As part of the change, we needed a suite of learning resources and promotional material to distribute to staff. We wanted a visual style that was fun, colourful and bold – a huge contrast to the corporate branding staff was used to seeing. The style needed to align with the Compass logo. I was in charge of designing, creating and implementing a consistent visual style across all content, including: A short promotional video/animation for the launch of Compass A series of interactive online tutorials aimed at both learners and managers A series of booklets with step-by-step instructions on how to use the system Work completed while employed by the Housing Authority.

Painters Registration Online

The Painters Registration Online is a federally funded project completed under the National VET E-learning Strategy. It consists of three fully online courses that provide painters with the necessary training to become registered and start their own small business. As face-to-face training is currently only available in the Perth metropolitan area, these online courses allow painters from regional or remote areas to access training. I was involved in the design and development of the interactive modules within the courses. This involved establishing the learner characteristics and learning strategy, and collaborating with two subject matter experts to restructure workbook content for online delivery. Each module is accessible in a variety of formats to cater for different users and devices. Part of the challenge in creating these modules was to use software that lecturers can easily use to update content, but keep the visual design appealing to the user. The solution involved using a suite of familiar software, keeping to simple interactions, and establishing a strong graphic style that can be applied across the board. The project was featured in the June 2013 edition of the Flex e-News and presented at various national e-learning conferences. Work completed while employed by Polytechnic West.

I was able to easily integrate text, images, video, interactive maps, panoramic photos, galleries and feedback forms into an engaging and interactive information resource that showcased Polytechnic West’s Bentley campus. It’s a step up from the text-heavy handbook that is usually distributed to students. Work completed while employed by Polytechnic West.
