For the Diploma in Digital Learning Design project I was required to design and develop a multimedia learning module.

Here you can see the programme scoping and commentary. Also linked within this document are the screen plans, storyboard and wireframe.

Further below is a screen recording of the prototype created using Elucidat.

Not all parts have been fully developed as the idea was to show the potential and demonstrate my understanding, as opposed to having a ready-to-use product.

Having enjoyed the diploma and what I was able to create, I am looking to gain more experience in this area.

I am expanding the range of content I create, on themes related to teaching and learning.

Currently I host and produce a podcast, From Page to Practice, which provides digital learning for teachers. I am also working on content for Instagram and exploring options with TikTok. I do this under @pagepracticepodcast.

Also related to social media, I am going to be creating more content for Tonalex Mastering, something very different to my usual themes.

Please do get in touch if you'd like to work together on any future projects.
